Gliding for summer lake trout on New York’s Lake Champlain

It was a scorchingly hot day – by noon it was nearly 100 degrees – as we dropped a relatively new lure made of zinc alloy to Champlain’s beefy lake trout. And the drop was by no means shallow. The area we fished showed depths of 80 to 100 feet, little wonder why we needed 7⁄8-ounce lures to reach bottom before the sun went down.
