Default Jiging up lakers

Three of us went to Turquoise Res last weekend and fished the bottom at 35 ft.* We caught 16 or 17 lakers all weekend with the biggest at 18".* Kept three of the smaller ones and fried them in Tempura batter and Panco (Good).* I am new to Lake Trout and was wondering what technique to use when jigingf or bigger fish.* We were not vigerously jiging but using small soft vertical motions with 4" white jigs tiped with sucker meat.* Should we get the bait moving?* Should we use bigger jigs for bigger fish?*

Appreciate any advice!

I'm no expert, but Turquoise is known for numbers of smaller lake trout. Dem's good eating! I'd go with a bigger tube jig if trying to taget bigger fish, but lets let some of the experts chime in.

The first thing I'd do is get rid of the sucker meat.* Big ones don't like it.

Second would be to try Blue Mesa!!!

Big fish WILL eat 4-inch tubes

You know the old saying "big lakers are some times here, and some times there, and they are often somewhere else." Well its not and old saying,,,, because, I just made it up.

Task one is locating bigger fish.... task two is catching them - things Tarponjim has in Spades.

I'm not at that level, and I don't even want to be.... I generally like a little (small piece of fresh bait) scent on the end of my lure. It probably inhibits my bigger fish catch rate, but I've caught a few big fish in my life and I'm out there to have fun now - I'm not so much about catching huge numbers or big fish these days, I mostly want to have fun, and help others have fun if I can.

NewGuy, yeah, welcome to the madness, (and pure fun), of fishing for macks. I have never been the same, with the occassional fishing for walleye, bass, etc., to ease the heart. You got the basics pretty well down, maybe try a chartruese/pepper color, or clear/pepper. Mix it up. that's the fun of jigging. Lakers are very predatory, and move a lot. Keep at it. Find good structure, and work it. I almost also always tip them with sucker, it's only a matter of time 'til the big one comes along, and thinks, yeah, that's the ticket!
