Every November fisheries biologists and a team of assistants use electrofishing boats at night to capture lake trout on Lake Champlain. Data is collected from upwards of 400 lakers each fall to monitor the health of the fishery and measure impacts of the lamprey control program.
Come November there are a growing number of anglers that are just getting started. As long as there’s open water and a way to launch a boat, no matter how cold it gets, these hardy soles are always game for a thrilling day of winter fishing for lake trout and salmon. To kick of the season a handful of these guys have organized a derby. Since 2009 the first Saturday in November has been reserved for the Frostbite Fleet Salmon Shootout.
