I am going fishing this weekend on a lake that gets up to 80 feet deep and contains lakers. I just bought a boat and am excited to test it out. I have never fished for, caught or even seen a Lake Trout in my life, but would like to give it a shot this weekend.
I have a dipsy diver which I know will bring my bait down deep, and I have read up on a few rigs which include a 3 way swivel and a heavy weight. Does anyone else have any advice? Are they at the bottom of the lake in late August?
My boat has a fish finder which I need to learn how to use. I have also read about jigging for lakers but can't quite imagine how to do that at those depths.
