    Hi John, I was just looking at your post from last year. Did you ever get out? From memory when I was a kid some 50 years ago Char stay deep down so I would be interested if you caught anything by trolling? I now live in the South Island of New Zealand and what a mate of mine does here for the trout in the lakes is fish with a down rigger which is an 18lb weight thats lowered down to what ever depth you want with the line attached to it on an elastic band which breaks when there is a fish strike and the fish comes up to the surface for the fight. It means that you can troll really deep down where the fish are. My mate who fishes that method out fishes me with surface trolling ten fold! Any way good luck! Tight Lines, Ralph.
