Me and a good friend are heading up to lake granby at the end of the month, we went up in the middle of July last year and only caught 1 laker. If anyone has any good tips on catching lakers up at granby I really would appreciate it. Thanks

If you're in Denver, it can be had at Discount Tackle on Santa Fe. Frozen of course.

If not, I imagine it would be a fatal flaw for one of the Granby tackle shops not to stock the stuff.

Carp meat can be used in substitute, if need be.

So is the purpose of this for more bites or just stronger bites that the fish actually hold onto?
Both, I'm sure. 8)

You don't need sucker meat at all if you are targeting the biggest lake trout, just upsize your jig. But you won't catch numbers of the larger fish either. (Remember that it takes many years to grow a large Laker, please release Lakers over 24 inches).

7eleven in Granby usually has sucker meat. Only use a small piece ( about quarter in. by 1in. Let it hang down the middle of the tube & make sure you don't have a scale from the sucker covering the point of your jig :thumb:

Thanks for the info, and no worries I have never caught a laker in my life and don't really plan on fishing for them anytime soon. I was just curious how they used the sucker meat

It seems sucker meat Is like the main bait for them, why is that compared to any other fish in the lake they could eat? Is it just because suckers really have no other use or what? You'd think a piece of other fish meat would work the same
