Lake trout are big fans of big baits. Lake trout eat trout, salmon and suckers. All of which are about 10″ in length. The Hogy HDUV series are the best size for lake trout ice fishing. We can tell you when the lake ice over happens when we see HDUV jiggin baits flying off the shelf and headed to the mid-west. Big soft baits make the best ice fishing lures. No longer a kept secret.
