I thought the lake trout is out of season now. Last week I fished St. Clair River and was really surprised then noticed a guy who put a nice laker on his rope. Is it legal to possess lake trout from St. Clair River now?
I'm pretty sure Fasteight and his buddy Dave had a conversation with a conservation officer, where the CO told them the St Clair river is open. Incidentally, someone posted about the lakers they were catching last weekend. They really are a different fish this time of year, aren't they? Colors come out that I didn't know they had, and for some reason they actually seem to like to fight. (At least that's been my limited late-season laker experience.)
Well on the canadian side, they are closed.
I tried to find in the Michigan regs' but no luck. My son got 3 today, 6,8,10 pounds in the st clair trying for rainbows. The lakers seem to be very active. These were caught flatlining off the back, I usually only catch them down deep in lake huron in the spring.
