Trout & Salmon

Off Shore Tackle Banner


Dan Lindner and Dave Csanda talk about Brook Trout. Big brookies aren’t just bug eaters; they grow large by feasting on minnows and small fish. Spinners, jigs and crankbaits are ideal for provoking strikes and bulldog fights.

Casting or vertically jigging 4-inch softbait minnow imitations on spinning gear is the hot tactic for king salmon, especially near Great Lakes harbors and breakwalls.

The Nipigon River in northwest Ontario is home to the world record brook trout, and perhaps the world’s finest drive-to fishing for “specs,” as brookies are known in Canada. Scenic wilderness and big, hard-fighting fish make for a true angling adventure.
