Good morning Lake Linkers. Hopefully heading to Trout Lake tomorrow with my Dad and a long time friend. I haven't fished it in years. Jigging and slip bobbers is how I plan to try and find the fish and any help would be greatly appreciated. Please pm me. Thanx C & E Chaser.

Oh my goodness, it's a mystery to me where I got the other 5000 acres, too. Thank you to everyone who so kindly corrected me - totally my bad. And the thing is, I'd been wrong for the last 15 years. Apparently, it's not only a tough lake to fish for me, but it's a tough lake to gauge the size of. I should remember that it's really a lot smaller body of water than I thought the next time I'm trekking across it to my favorite ice fishing spots....

Trout Lake in Minnesota in BWCA one portage to north of Lake Vermilion is a bit over 9000 acres. Maybe that's the lake?

Bring on the Ice, the Lake Link site has Trout Lake at 3800 acres. Where did you find the other 5000 acres?

3800 acres? Trout Lake is over 9000 acres. And the majority of people who fish it get skunked. That's not because there aren't many fish in it, though. Like a lot of people have said, this is a tough lake to find fish on. And although it is deep enough to have lake trout in it, be careful how fast you zip across the lake where you zip across the lake if you value your lower unit.  And don't expect to find vegetation anywhere. That said, it is one of my favorite lakes to fish (even though I often get skunked) because it's beauty never disappoints the one who craves an "uncivilized" fishing experience. This lake has a lot of fetch, so just don't get caught out there in a strong wind....

Townline, that's awesome! it is not an easy lake to figure out, but you seem to be on to something. When we used to vacation there we only fished North Trout. I think my dad dinging the prop on South Trout may have had something to do with it lol. Always wanted to try it as it looks a lot better as far as structure. 

As far as too many people fishing it, Something tells me a 3800 acre lake can provide plenty of room for everyone.

This report is for "sleepermike" this guy messaged me and told me to delete my post because there are already to many people fishing trout lake..... to bad Mike 

Saturday night was awesome i was the last one on the water until almost 4am. I found 1 point that held fish every pass. Caught about 15 only 4 were short. Big was 28.5 26.5 21 also had a couple big girls come unglued.  

As far as Mike and others that may think the same way. Get over it. Fishing is fun and this is exactly what this thread is for!!! Practice healthy harvest and everything will be just fine!

Also thank you to everyone that messaged me and helped make it a productive weekend!!

First time on the lake yesterday I was able to find 4 short walleyes and 2 giant suckers!!

Interesting lake.... only certain humps hold rock but yesterday on the south lake it seemed mud was key. And deep mud. Then again I only got 4. 

440am on Saturday and I'm on my way to put some more time in. 

For.guys that troll this any direction on bait/color... i.may try some deep suspended trolling on the sputh part today. 

Thank you everyone that messaged me!

heading up to try my luck on trout. I have never been on the lake. 

I will be targeting big walleyes to take a pic and watch swim away. 

Was wondering if anyone has implemented jigging raps and or trolling? Or is live bait just the ticket. 

Also if anyone wants to join me shoot me a pm I will be on the water both Saturday and Sunday.  

Thank.you for any help and tight lines everyone.
