Flathead Lake, Lake Trout: Video of the Week
By Matt Schauer

Posted: July 6, 2012

This is the time of the year that anglers start fishing for lake trout with Zimmer Tackles whole bait set-up on Flathead Lake. It is a fun way to catch big lakers in 100 to 120 feet of water.

During the video of the week, Jim Johnson, of Lincoln, MT, shows you how to hook up the set-up and catch more fish. Once you reel one of those Flathead Lake monsters in, make sure you smoke it up for some great tasting fish.

Johnson, who owns Hi Country Snack Food in Lincoln, is no stranger to producing some great tasting smoked fish. Johnson says that lake trout are some of the best fish to smoke because of the amount of fish oil that they contain.

Enjoy the video and good luck fishing on Flathead lake.
