Personal Best Laker

Trout, Lake
Size: 
30.5 inches

I took advantage of the rare opportunity to icefish Lake Superior yesterday. The goal was to conquer my mortal enemy the Coho Salmon and then target the giant lakers found in Superior. The Coho fishing was a bust, but at around 1:45 this nice Laker slammed my tube jig 100 feet down and fought like crazy, easily the best fight I’ve had with a Lake Trout. Drag peeling like a crazy mofo. She taped to 30.5 inches and was sent back to terrorize the local smelt population. These things are quickly becoming one of my favorite species.

Great fish man!
I was wishing I had taken the time this year to hit that area. Someday I keep saying.

It is all perspective!
