Lake Trout Fishing Tips – Level Up Fishing Podcast Hosts Stormy Cochran and Andy Cochran (Owners of GSO Fishing)

Welcome to Episode 18 of the Level Up Fishing Podcast! This week, we’re covering Lake Trout fishing tips. With peak Spring Lake Trout season upon us, it’s the perfect time to sharpen your skills and reel in some of these magnificent fish.

GSO owner Andy Cochran shares some tried-and-true tactics for finding and landing Lake Trout, drawing from years of experience on the water. From understanding Lake Trout behavior to the importance of checking your gear, we cover everything you need to know to up your Lake Trout game.

But it’s not just about catching fish—it’s also about conservation. Lake Trout play a vital role in the ecosystem of our lakes, and it’s crucial to protect these decades-old fish. That’s why we’re strong advocates for catch and release. As Lake Trout age, their meat becomes fatty, making them less desirable for eating. If you’re looking for a tasty meal, consider targeting Browns, Rainbows, or Lake Trout pups instead of the adults. 

If you want to get your catch mounted, nowadays, there are incredible fish replica artists who can create lifelike replicas of your catch using photos and measurements. That way, you can preserve the memory of that epic fishing trip without harming the fish.
