Wow!! Nice fish. we went for lakers last year and it took 3-4 hrs to get in. With 6 hrs in you must have been starting to come back out again!

Can't help you with the specks, Sparkie, but I can with the lakers---or do you speck afficiandos(sp?) look down your nose at those??

I like laker fishing also they can put up a good fight also with those big tails diving straight down !!!!

To FISHING WITH FRANKIE. We don’t take a fish finder into the park but several times during our trip I’d get curious and plumb the depth by dropping down a lure. It was usually between 10 to 15 feet of water but our EGB’S or Cleo’s were only flatlined behind a slow paddled canoe so I would guess they were running 4 to 6 feet down.Like Drew was saying in one of his posts you would feel the specks swipe at the lure but not hook up. We couldn’t use bait in the lake we were fishing so that wasn’t an option to increase hookups. Hope this helps.

You couldn't use bait?....or you couldn't use LIVE bait? There is a difference.

Most of the park is no LIVE bait.

Some places...no organic bait.

44 of the 70 trout caught from the stern of my canoe this season were lakers.

So no, I don't look down my nose at them.

I'm more apt to look down my nose at specks, cause there more 'moody', and I feel like a teacher looking over the rim of my glasses, just before I 'teach them a lesson'!..hahaha

The reg's for the lake he was at is "only artificial lures may be used". The route is an old favourite of mine (no gps transmitter required).

Nice going fishnhunt. I once saw a guy do that 2200m portage with two 24's of Canadian in bottles. He was headed to the chain of lakes to the south of the third lake. I often wonder if he ever made it. lol

[QUOTE] I like beer like the next guy and maybe more but only a maniac with a loaded gun could make me carry 2 two-fours of beer into the chain of lakes to the south of the lakes we were in. We did see a newbie carrying a bag of purchased firewood over a portage which made our kids chuckle .

Yes the lakes we were in are artificial lures onlyand it does make the fishing a little more difficult but I wanted to try the area.
