Sorry about the abbreviation. Great Lakes trout. Browns in the spring, when they're in close to shore. Steelhead in the fall, when they start schooling at river mouths. Lake trout mixed in at any time. In the warmer weather months, its big boat trolling with down riggers, etc. several miles out. There's salmon as well, but that fishery has declined the last few years from what it once was.
Bigger inland lakes by and large here. Many, particularly north, are very big. Trolling is an effective way to cover a lot of water. Armed with a hydrographic map and a fish finder (aka sonar these days) can work structure, run a drop-off. Never fished lakes often enough to the point of knowing all the "honey holes". Seemingly always had to work the water to find out where the fish were at. As well as paying attention to where the locals are fishing.
Ha! No walking on the backs of fish anywhere that I'm aware of. Plenty of days spent getting skunked. Such is the nature of things. Got to put in your time, see what happens. Saw your stripper pics earlier ITT. Quality fish. Nice fishery, if that's in your backyard.
P.S. Stopped by the local Bass Pro Shop the other day. Have look around, kick the gear tires some. Been awhile since I stopped to look solely at fishing equipment. Oh my. Think I need a new tackle box, the reels they have now are pretty nice (when did they become so expensive?), got confused examining the lines section. Always have told myself it was either golf or fishing. Not both. Don't know if the wallet can handled be a slave to two recreational mistresses.
