MICHIGAN CITY — A welcome thump stopped a retrieve mere feet from the rod tip on lower Trail Creek on Tuesday.

A sassy lake trout had followed nearly to the bank before inhaling a chartreuse spinner. To be certain, the fight did not measure up to a steelhead or salmon, but the 7-pound beauty pulled some drag while thrashing, dashing and cartwheeling underwater.
