Lake Trout can be caught all day long by jigging, trolling, or casting.

Jigging is intended to create a jerky, vertical motion, as opposed to
spinner baits, which move through the water horizontally. A jig consists of a lead
sinker with a hook molded into it and usually covered by a soft body to attract fish.

Trolling is a method of fishing where one or more fishing lines, baited
with lures or bait fish, are drawn through the water. This may be behind a moving
boat, or by slowly winding the line in when fishing from a static position.

Casting is the act of throwing bait or a lure using a fishing line out
over the water using a flexible fishing rod. The usual technique is for the angler to
quickly flick the rod from behind toward the water.
The first recommended lure is Leaded Jigs with a piece of artificial or real
bait attached.

Jigging on the bottom will catch you a lot of Lakers

Has a Hook on the top of it as well as on the bottom of it.
The second recommended lure is a herring dodger with a fly and a bait rig for
trolling works well at slow speeds

Trolling works well at slow speeds

Dodgers simulate when fish feed, the movement of their silver bodies
alerts other fish to quickly investigate the possibility of a shared feeding
opportunity. They have two different finishes on each side.
Smaller, lighter spoons with a good fluttering action

Theirs casting spoons, trolling spoons, weed less spoons, surface
spoons, jigging spoons
Live Lining Technique

To live line, drop your live bait from a boat or pier into the water,
allowing it to swim freely at the end of your line. Its basically fishing with a worm
on the hook suspended under a bobber. The bobber or cork keeps the bait at a
preset depth and alerts you to a fish bite by disappearing under the water.
Bottom Fishing Technique

Fish can be found on the bottom, so youll need a weight or sinker on
your line, rigged below your hook to get your bait down to the bottom and hold it
there. Once you have dropped your lure or bait, let the bait rest and float along until
you get a bite.
Cast and Retrieve Technique

Cast your lure to your target and remember fish love structure and
cover. Let the lure fall to your desired depth. Retrieve the lure by reeling in, using
your line to pull the lure to mimic a swimming fish. You may wish to vary the speed
of your retrieve to find a speed that entices a bite. Wait a couple seconds, then cast
again and repeat the retrieval.
Top water Technique

Its a variation of cast and retrieve that uses a floating lure. Some top
water lures such as poppers, have a concave face that makes a big splash when you
jerk the lure sharply on the surface.
Jigging Technique

Cast or drop your lure straight down. Count a few seconds or wait
until you feel the spoon hit the bottom. Snap or pop your wrist and rod tip up
quickly a short distance. Let the lure fall again. Reel down a little bit to keep the line
tight in case of a strike and repeat.

GWT: Downtown Marquette Architecture

Justin L.
Peer Eval:

Justin Lukowicz did a great job for the circumstance that he was in since his
partner didnt show up. He allowed the participants to observe the buildings closer
than we would normally. In addition, he gave us insight on the historical value of
these building. Some things Justin can improve on are transitions and conclusion. I
like to use compare or contrast to transitions. For example, similar to building A,
building B was built with the same materials, or unlike this building Conclusion is
basically restating what we had learn on the GWT and supporting the purpose of the
GWT. Answering the so what? In your conclusion would be a good start. So what
about the architecture? If you can answer that question to the audience and make it
relatable, then your participants would remember the significances of your GWT.
Overall, I enjoyed the GWT, thank you!
Peer Eval:
Great Intro.
Justin seems so much more comfortable speaking now!
Good guided imagery; When he had us all close our eyes, pretending we were
back in the 1880s.
Great use of pictures.
Very relatable and relevant.


Peer Eval:
-"Think about this as you walk" was good!
-Guided imagery was helpful
-Good information about history
-Read off cards quite a bit, but we were aware of your situation, and know you didn't
have much time to re-prepare.
dd. -Everyone knows Donckers, so it was cool that you added that stop in!
ee. -Some awkward silences, but then again the situation could have played into that.
