Another big Lake Trout trolling lure...

5 posts in this topic

Chip,

The fins are made from 0.125 inch aluminum plate. It makes the lure a bit heavy but the wood body gives it plenty of buoyancy. I use lead core line on a heavy action trolling rod and have no problem getting the thing down to the depths I want. I have even used a 4 ounce lead trolling weight to get that bit of extra depth during the warmer months. Five colours of lead core with the weight puts it at 40 plus feet, seven colours without the weight gives around 30.

The only problem I have found with using the big size lures is that you have to be Superman to hold onto the rod for any amount of time. The drag is amazing. I had to buy a rod holder to take the strain off my arms.

Thanks for the comments...

Greg.
