Hi Italo what would you use when ice fishing for brook trout in a small lake the trout average about 13 to 14 inches and where would the fish be located God bless you

Hi Josh….It really depends on how big they are and what they normally feed on. If they are smaller (under 1 lb.), I would you suggest you use small lures in the 1/8 oz. size (spinners, spoons, small Rapalas, small hair jigs and jigs/plastic grubs, and flies), and even tip them with a half a worm. If the brook trout are over 1 lb., you can try using minnows and larger lures. Trolling is the best way to locate them and once you find a concentration of feeding fish you can always drift and cast….God bless you, Italo
