Flat-Line Trolling for Lake Trout (with trolling tips)

We're out here on Lake Ontario trolling for lake trout. It's early May and the water temperature is 44 degrees Fahrenheit (6 degrees Celsius. I've chosen to run with the American Smelt - specifically the gold colour due to the party cloudy kinda sunny. Though I love running the gold for these little-bit murky waters and overcast fishing condition.
