Vertically jigging lake trout

Recommended Posts

Can anyone share their experience vertically jigging lake trout with Shimano Butterfly jigs. I will be fishing shield lakes in mid Aug. Recommended jig colours would be a bonus. Thanks in advance.

I had to google search that lure. Never heard of it.

I just dead stick and wait for the laker to come chasing,then start reeling when they are with,n 2-3 ft of the bait.

 

That is all I got.

Look forward to your report when you return from it Tom.

Don't bother fishing until you've marked them on the graph.   White/chartruese anything are my laker go tos.

As Bill says, wait until you mark them and sit right on top and have at er.

Haven't used the Shimano jigs but have used other similar ones as well as Buzz Bombs with great success.

Best colours are chartreuse, green/white, blue/white.

FYI they can be deadly power jigging.  ;)

As others have said, mark fish then camp out right on top of them. Just about anything white will work, lakers aren't exactly the smartest fish in the lake. Simple hair jigs usually work as well as anything else.

      I'm currently on week 2 of my extended summer vacation and have been hard on getting some cabin building done. First thing needed was a dry, shady and bug free zone to chillax in when the working was done.   Threw up this temporary shack in a weekend.   Now onto the cabin building segment. Took a lot longer than expected to layout the foundation. Drilled 1/4" holes in the granite to drop my nails into to run my string lines.   Then it was time to dri
