FISHING ON THE GREAT LAKE WITH STRATUS:
Moving along slowly – 1.5 to 2.0 knots – using a lure and/or fly set-up. Ideally placing your lure as close to the bottom with the aid of a depth sounder.
As you follow the contours of the lake your sounder helps to keep you at the depth you are targeting. The depths we target vary throughout the year. Ranging from shallow (to 5 metres), and deep (to 40+ metres).
Summer and Autumn:
HOW WE TARGET THE TROUT
|Down Riggers:||Trolling light gear targeting the trout at very precise depths aided by the fish finder/sounder|
|Harling:||Shallow trolling using flies and lures in depths up to 6 metres – usually early morning and evening.|
|Jigging:||Stationary over the hot-spots. Dropping our braid lines deep then giving them a subtle action. Feel that strike!|
Short of time, but want to experience the size of the lake and its attractions. See the famous Maori rock carvings (only able to be seen from out on the lake). Give me a call on the day, I’ll get you out and about.
