Lake Trout 12th species of Salmonid

Monday, February 20, 2023

On my way to lake cascade for some giant yellow perch I stopped to try for my lifer Lake trout.  I had seen lots of trophy lake trout caught here.  Most people weren't sharing spots or baits.  My first few hours I caught a really small one 10".  The next day I brought the tip ups and used yellow perch for bait (also a really good yellow perch bait).  I caught 6 that day (two on the tipups) and this was the biggest.  It wasn't a trophy so I didn't bother measuring it.  But, it was my 12th species of salmonid.
