We have been jigging up Lake Trout in West Grand Traverse Bay. Now this is fun! This trout was 32 inches long and 10 pounds! Fish have been found anywhere from 110 to 170 fow right on the bottom. Our set-ups have been a 6′ medium action rods with a spinning reel loaded with Power Pro line. The business end is a “Elk Rapids S” vertical jig. No live bait needed.
