Episode #366 Keep It Flexible Lake Trout

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us to Cree Lake in Northern Saskatchewan.

Cree Lake Lodge is Charlie’s home away from home, and the new lodge makes it even better. Trolling the open waters for Lake Trout is the plan this morning but let the fish decide what they want, preferences can change by the minute and so can the colours!  Modifications can help with short hitters more than you could ever imagine, and make it as easy as possible to quickly adjust and change weights as needed during the day.  Once dialed in, line counter reels can be crucial to repeat success.
