If you want to have lots of success when you fish for lake trout, make sure you know the most important lake trout fishing tips. Most lake trout can be found in the United States and Canada. Lake trout can be classified as both game fish and food fish. Lake trout are the largest species of the trout family and can be as large as 40 pounds. Lake trout prefer oxygen-rich cold deep water, and this is where they will usually be found during hot summer periods.

The Ideal Tackle for Lake Trout.

It is very important to use the right fishing tackle when you are fishing for lake trout. Few anglers realize that the wrong fishing tackle can be the deciding factor between your successes and your failures when you are fishing for lake trout and therefore rather make sure you use the right equipment.

A light action rod is ideal for these circumstances, and with it you can use a small sutton silver spoon for bait, with a 1-oz weight with 6-pound dark green fishing line that will work well for up to 40 feet. a 2-oz weight will be good enough to use for up to 65 feet.

When is The Best Time of Year.

The best season of the year is early spring. Lake trout are usually very hungry this time of year and does not discriminate where they feed and it means they should then be easier to catch. Later in spring they may even be as low as 45 feet deep.

Some More facts and Info About Lake Trout.

Most lake trout are found in Canada. A large female trout can deposit anything between 10,000 to 20,000 eggs. Ironically it may happen that not enough eggs spawn each year. This type of fish will typically seek water where the temperatures range between 40 and 52 degrees F.

Lake trout mostly eat other small fish species but in many cases also prey on insects. No matter what time of year it is, there is no doubt that a huge lake trout on your line may give you one of the biggest thrills that you have ever experienced as a trout angler.

Lake trout are very beautiful fish and can put up a really big fight. Do not hesitate to experience a lake trout fishing outing when you get invited. Who knows that big trophy trout may just be waiting for you if you decide to go.
