Trolling for Lake Trout
Early in the spring lake trout may be taken on ordinary fairly light trolling tackle, trolling on the surface. With the arrival, of warm weather, however, these fish seek the very deepest portions of the lake, and then deep-trolling is the only practicable method. Until within a few years the only way to deep-troll for "lakers" was by using a long, strong hand-line, a dipsey sinker averaging about a half-pound in weight (the last on a short sinker-line attached to the main line by a three-way swivel) and on this formidable arrangement a gang consisting of three or more burrs, or trebles, and a lip-hook was used; a large minnow being used for bait.
