One real quick way to tell lakers from any of the silvers is that the spots are light colored and the background dark for starters

Since there are legal length restrictions on the different species, it might be a good idea to practice catch and release until you learn them by sight. There are some good color plates you can look at online but each fish species can change color based on time of the year so it can get confusing.

I wouldn't keep anything I can't identify.

Thanks for all the replies

Post a pic of the other Lake trout you caught.  Would be interesting to note the differences.

tjo: Nobody thinks you are stupid, and there is no such thing as a stupid question either presented by someone well intentioned. Occasionally on here someone messes around trying to either be funny or just to be "annoying" to others. There have been many posts here over time that asked about the differences between Atlantics and browns which share some commonalities as they are related species so I think anyone that may have been suspicious about the authenticity of your original post may have mistakenly thought that it was "spoofing" those previous posts. The thing worth noting is that folks have provided you with some real good information and materials to clear up the original concern as well as other potential issues. Happy fishing out there and best of luck.

Yikes. Putting those oil cans on your carpet is a bad idea. The slime will ruin it in a hurry
