A Rough Laker Day
May 12, 2005
I fished with Andre & Jin again today, but this time for Lake Trout. The weather took a turn for the worse as the temperatures fell to almost zero overnight. To make matters worse, the winds were from the north at 15 to 25 MPH. The water temps fell to about 41degreees in the warmest places. In the first fifteen minutes, there were 2 lakers caught. It took several hours to get another and quite some time later to get a fourth. The wind really made a mess of all the areas that we were going to fish during the day. We were lucky to get the fish that we did under these conditions. There were three-foot waves in the middle of the lake and gusts were making some waves even bigger. A tough, but rewarding day!
