Here’s my long overdue follow up to a trip Grant Sorensen and I took late October to Lake Superior. Immediately following my return my travel schedule hit a previously unmatched level of crazy and I’m just now finding some weekend time to get caught back up on things.
Our laker trip this last month complete changed what we thought was possible with regards to size and numbers due to the numbers and quality of the fish caught. We knew Lake Superior had trophy capability… we just didn’t know the extent until about 30 minutes into our first trolling run when all heck broke loose and we found ourselves on top of a huge school of giant lake trout!
Now notice I mentioned “Part 2” in the title. If you missed last fall’s trip when this hunt for big lake trout all got started you might want to check out this link for the back story >>> Late Season Lake Trout Dream Trip 2011
This hunt for big lake trout has been a two year span of trial and error, gaining confidence with some presentations while eliminating others. On this year’s trip we opted to leave the downriggers behind because we felt we had a great game plan that would employ Sufix 832 Lead Core and big spoons that would be fished behind boards. Some decisions like this backfire. On this trip… things couldn’t have gone any better!
The rest of this report will rely on video to explain the rest of the trip and will be posted as replies. Do check them out if you want the rest of the story…
