  1. Thanks for all the input guys. I was leaning towards a Terrova but I'm going to take a better look at the Xi5.
  2. Bandrus1, where are you located?
  3. Trolling Motor I'm looking at upgrading my bow mount trolling motor and have narrowed it down to two units, the Minn Kota Terrova 24v 80# w ipilot and the Motorguide Xi5 80# w pinpoint gps. Do you guys have a preference between the two?
  4. Check out the Consummate Sportsman on YouTube. He has some good videos about open water jigging on Lake Michigan.
  5. Went out this morning for walleye, got 1 'eye that was 22 inches but picked up several smallies including a 19.5" pig. All fish were between 35 and 45 fow.
  6. Our trip to Moosehead was great! We caught a bunch of cookie cutter 15 to 20 inch lake trout, but didn't get into any salmon. Mooselook wobblers and Michigan stinger scorpions behind a small dodger caught all of the fish. We stayed at at a great place on Brassua Lake in Rockwook, ME. BRASSUALAKECAMPS.com
  7. Thanks for all the info guys!!! I'm really looking forward to this trip to Moosehead and fishing new water.
  8. Thanks for the contact Time Out but I don't really want to spend the extra $250 on this trip (have a new baby coming in October). Going with a local guide is definitely the best way to go when fishing new water. I used to live and Vermont and saw how guys fished for lake trout there but I wasn't able to do any open water trolling because I didn't own a boat at the time. There they would troll flies behind small dodgers using riggers or lead core. The flies that they would use were more like streamers that one would fly fish with, not the big flashy flies like we use on the big lakes. Moosehead seems like a big body of water compared to the small lakes in Vermont, so I wasn't sure if it was going to be more like the great lakes or the smaller ponds/lakes when it came to technique. Years ago I did a couple of fly-in trips to Canadian shield lakes in northern Ontario and we were able to pick up some suspended lake trout on big heavy spoons and deep diving plugs.
  9. Thanks Pap! I have only fished big water for lake trout so I was thinking that downsizing baits might be needed. I am going to bring my walleye spoons with me just in case. I have ice fished lakes in New England for lake trout and was able to jig some up with spoons and big bucktail jigs so I was thinking that might work for open water as well. I will definitely post a report after the trip, hope to have pics of fish to go along with the report. Lol
  10. Moosehead Lake, ME Has anyone on here fished Moosehead Lake in Maine for lake trout and/or landlocked salmon? I have watched a few youtube videos and it looks like most guys troll for lake trout but I was thinking about trying to jig for them as well. I have fished for trout and salmon a lot on the Great Lakes and I'm pretty sure the same techniques that are used on the Great Lakes will work up there too but any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
