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.

Best subscription box

Best pike subscription box

Great box

I recently got the multi species RLM Elite trial box. Really happy with the first box. Lots of hard baits and really good soft plastics.
The best part of this box is it's a Canadian company!
The only thing I would change if I could would be to receive a box each month instead of every other month.

Elite walleye Box

Phenomenal hard bait quantity and great plastics...best box subscription on the market!!!

Pretty neat items

They are nice baits but I think a few unique jig heads would be nice to see in a dedicated walleye box, as that’s usually the go to in warmer water temperatures

Nice package of crank baits

Let’s you try out some new items you’ve never used before
