no report , but for lakers troll the deeper water on the west side. depending on the wind ,, drift and jig with some 1oz+ jigs tipped with cut bait or plastics , experiment with depth and use braid with a mono leader. you should get bit ;)

AS summer progresses and hot temps warmed lakes up, big lakes are very hard to catch lake trout in the summer.

@Patrick54 heading up a week after you. Would love any reports on your success. Going up with a newbee so would love to get him on some fish.

reilingr: Not a good report, sorry to say. Three long days fishing and only 1 northern and 1 smallie to show for it. Was beautiful up there though, absolutely beautiful weather, warm during the day, sleeping cool at night. Talked to a number of parties and only heard of one laker caught in - get this - 25 ft. of water, no reports of walleye taken, a few northern and a few smallies. Fishing was really turned off for some reason. We primarily fished the lower west side long and hard, tried various depths, etc. Some trolling, some jigging; some artificial baits (mostly rapalas and spoons), some cut bait, some leeches. We did better this same week 2 years ago. I guess you never know. Hope it turns on for you. Good luck!

Mayfly hatch was in full swing during that time too. I am sure that did not help.
