Chinook salmon have been scarce throughout Lake Ontario this summer, but in many areas the lake trout fishing has been hotter than ever with many Lakers caught over 20 lb.
Here’s an excellent “screen-grab” from our Raymarine HybridTouch showing “stacked” Lakers in 80′ of water.
Main challenge to consistently catching them if you are using downriggers is running your lures right in front of them which often means bumping the bottom with your cannon balls. This can pay-off big time line the 26 lb. fish above!
