I've been hitting different bodies of water in the mountains trying to find staging Lake Trout to fish with spoons and jigs. Found some and it was blast getting into em! Nothing big but so much fun to catch in 30-40fow working spoons. Here is some pictures, with a how to video here's the [log in for link]
Good insight on fishing spoons in a jigging fashion. Kastmasters, Cleos, etc are something I have never really gotten into, despite my boxes and boxes of tackle. I would have thought you would have gotten snagged and been losing lures left and right on those lakes, not realizing that most of the bottom around the shore is sand.
Ironically, I lost all my kastmasters there, the windy days made me miss judge how close i was to shore and got caught up in them. If I have a tip to offer to people is that once you feel the spoon is getting close to shore reel it in without any hesitation.

I bet the spawn is over but now should be really fun to fish for them starting early in the day when they'll be shallower then any other time of the year. I'm going to try it before work a few times next week see how it goes.
Yes, a buddy went out to fish on Saturday and used sucker meat on a kastmaster off the bottom and caught over 8 fish. Not much action on the cast and jig retrieve action but hey at least he didn't get skunked.
