The Lewie Rig in action….Jigging for Lake Trout

Some people enjoy navigating the 100+ turns on the river to get to Clearwater Lake. I do. However, I have to admit that I prefer low water conditions. When that is the case, as it was this summer, Vermilion Bay Lodge is the only lodge with boats on the end of a 20 minute portage. That means you have a beautiful lake with lots of fish all to yourself. What better place to put the “Lewie Rig” to work…..jigging for lake trout in the Canadian wilderness?

Jigging for Lake Trout

I posted on this technique earlier this year, but a few of you wanted a video. Please note two things. First, I had a brain fart and described the blue and silver cleo as 3/4″. I meant 3/4¬†ounce. Secondly, please note the nice live well that was installed on one of Gord’s VBL boats. He promises to improve upon this for 2012 and to add new motors. See:

Thank you very much for making my get a way week so enjoyable. Dan and I had a great time. You and Susanne should be commended on how clean and well maintained your cabins and lodge are. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to go to Canada fishing and I look forward to the time I can come back.
