Lake Trout Opener

Posted by Scott Sibley on

Written By Dave Jones (Outdoor Dave)
Twas the day before opener, and all through the house
The anglers get ready for first ice lake trout
The rods were all set with tackle in tow
In hope that the morning would be good to go
 
The sleds were all packed with ice huts and chairs
plus augers, and heaters, and warm boots in pairs.
With spud bar in hand, to check as they go
It’s time to head out to drill that first hole
 
This ice was ready, and down the bait went
Hoping that soon the rods would be bent
A bounce off the bottom a jig and a reel
It was at this moment we hoped for a feel
 
When all of a sudden, there were marks on the flasher
I started to reel just a little bit faster
I felt a tug and set the hook fast
That’s when it shook, and swam and thrashed
 
As the battle took place deep down below
I reeled and reeled until it started to show
Lines a screaming, it went on a run,
That’s when I knew this was more than just fun
 
Soon enough the beast started to tire,
Thankfully so, my arms were on fire
Once again up it came, and we all gave a shout
There it was, the season’s first Lake Trout.

Awesome Box

Great selection and quality tackle.

The perfect hoodie for fall weather fishing!

Everything seems good quality, no luck catching anything yet though.

Great value

Review on rlm elite pike box

The box was good. I liked the amount of hard baits included in it, as well as the quality of soft plastics. The one orange large crank bait seemed a little bit cheap in my opinion (just seems like it is made of entirely plastic) but I liked the jointed plug perch lure and the adjustable crank bait where you can add weight to it for dive depths. I like that these boxes are made for targeting pike and musky which is unique in the industry and the fact that it is Canadian is an added bonus. I have been pike fishing a lot since the August box got delivered but I havent used any of the lures yet and will do an updated review on the lures as I use them. Thank you simple fishing for being unique and for being true north strong! I look forward to the October box
