Actually a char, lake trout or “lakers” are native to Vermont and found near the bottom of Vermont’s deep, cold lakes. These big trout can reach 30 or more inches and can weigh more than 20 pounds!
The best time for Lake Trout fishing is from April to the 2nd week in Sept. In the spring time we will be fishing 8-10 lines with planner boards in shallow waters for all our fish.
Lures used are spoons and plugs with light rods. Lake Trout fish range from 5lbs to 20 lbs. The biggest Lake Trout caught on Fish N Rigg Charters was in June 2013 and won the LCI Derby for the biggest lake trout 35 inch long at 16.6 lbs . Most of the biggest fish are caught in deep water using downriggers.
Lake Trout fishing is great for the entire family. Fish N Rigg Charters are available all year depending on the fishing and weather.
We can accommodate anglers very comfortably, and we also have an enclosed toilet onboard for your convenience.
Our fishing charter rates are very affordable; 1-5 people can fish 4-6 hours of actual fishing. Call or E-Mail for current rates. We GUARANTEE fish or you can choose another trip at no charge or your money back! Reservations are required for our Lake Champlain fishing charter.
