Ice Fishing Surprise… Schroon Lake Day 3

Ice Fishing Surprise… Schroon Lake Day 3

 

3rd and final day of our Schroon Lake trip fishing with Elias (it was again very slow and again I caught 2 lakers, although this time was surprised to catch the biggest of the day in 6′ of water while catching micro perch, on a small swedish pimple with no bait. Generally Lake Trout prefer deeper water, most that I have caught have been between 50′-80′ deep, but I have heard they do come in shallow like this at times… Now I am a believer.

Drilled many holes and spent many hours trying to find a good bite but in the 3 days we were there we really didn’t put anything solid together, it didn’t matter where on the lake we tried or what depth we fished, it was a slow grind everywhere we tried and there was virtually no pattern to these fish other than we would catch one every few hours.. regardless of depth.

Thanks for Watching!
