Lake trout fishing

Hello all,

I am an avid trout and bass fisherman who is having trouble catching lake trout now that they have moved to the deeper colder water. I have a camp on Fourth Lake in Inlet so I spend most of my time on Fourth, Seventh and Raquette. Does anyone have any tips that could help?

Troll real slow[less than 2mph], cold water [52 or less], big lures.
or anchor over deep cold water and bounce big silvery lures off bottom. They don't work, add some color.

Catch a 6" or so perch, hook it up and weight it down then drop it down into the deep cold water and wait... I've caught a 1/2 dozen of them this way on the lake in the Adk's I grew up on including this one:

Do you have down riggers and a fish finder?

I do not have down riggers no. I use my 14 foot sea nymph and typically use my fish finder to find water depth and troll spoons.

I feel your pain. Without downriggers we're only guessing at depth when trolling. I have a lead-core rig I use in my canoe and/or kayak. But I have better luck with lakers jigging or dragging bottom. Still, it's tough.
