Did you catch a lake trout?

Leave the bait to drift while the rod’s tip is nearly at the face level. When the bait passes you downstream, it is logical for the line to tighten up. Sometime the rod will experience some force or pulls, meaning the trout could be trying to get the bait, or the bait is bouncing on some rocks.

After the trout has completely taken the bait (if you experience a big pull), jerk the rod tip up to about 2 feet. Maintain the rod tip over your head so that the tout cannot unhook itself and escape. Reel the fish towards the shore and then scoop it out using a net.
