Some anglers in the northern part of North America don’t winterize their boats and they just don’t give up on any open-water fishing, even in the middle of winter. Some of the Great Lakes don’t freeze and are “fair-game” for persistent and hardy anglers chasing winter-staging steelhead and a mix of feeding brown and lake trout fishing the inshore structure breaks near harbor mouths and around the first deeper-water structure near shore.
Knowledgeable and dedicated anglers knows this well and fish Lake Ontario on any weekend that is above freezing and when winds are low to catch both steelhead, brown & lake trout fishing in-shore structure that attracts feeding trout even through the winter time. This is where the Raymarine Axiom fishfinder gives you the best bottom detail not only to see the exact structure break, but often fish cruising up and down it. Most times you have to be “right on the money” to find and catch open-water fish like trout. Raymarine makes it easy to find “the money” and the fish!
