Deadly Trout Lures.


fishing user avatarDevinFishing29 reply : 

Has anyone fished the rebel crickhopper for trout. It is a very deadly lure. Fished with it today and got about a 10 inch brown trout. sorry no pic. Post if you have any deadly lures you use for trout. Also had a couple other bites. Had a rainbow half way on to land and flopped off. it was only about 9 inches though.


fishing user avatarFinCulture reply : 

trout magnet jig! Trout love 'em! Panther Martins and Little Cleo spoons do the trick for me, too.


fishing user avatarAnantha Patel reply : 

Mepps and Panther Martins deserve to be on. Trout Magnets......... I am not so sure. Only got crappie and bluegills on them. But the mini magnets have worked time to time.


fishing user avatar*Hank reply : 

Panther Martins,small jerkbaits,and Daredevil spoons all work great for me.

concerning trout magnets; jut gotta know when to you 'em! I seldom use them in ponds, but are my number one lure in small rivers and streams. Try "deadly drifting" it with a float or even a regular bobber. Also use the right colors, white and mealworm gold especially.

Mepps, Panther Martins, We use Cast Master Spoons and the trout go crazy over them.


fishing user avatarAnantha Patel reply : 

Any luck with the mini magnets for you? I feel as if the small bait approach is underrated. Big trout eat a lot of small things, after all. Small trout too.

I use the regular 1/64 oz. They are the perfect size. When you think about it, trout mostly feed on small aquatic and semi-aquatic insects, so "matching the hatch" is best done with small presentations such as flies and the jigs. I've caught rainbows big and small on them and native-sized brookies. It is better to go smaller than bigger from my experience.


fishing user avatarBluebasser86 reply : 

Little Cleo, Turner Jones micro jig under a bobber, micro chatterbait, or a Ned rig, only baits I need for trout around here. 


fishing user avatarDevinFishing29 reply : 

I have never tried trout magnets before. The creek I fished is pretty small. It has a few deeper areas. Some trees in the water. The way I caught my fish was to cast out in the current and let it swing towards the bank and as I pulled it along the bank it hit. How do you fish trout magnets anyway?


fishing user avatarRob96 reply : 

The trout magnet website has videos on how to fish them.


fishing user avatarroadwarrior reply : 

The Panther Martin is killer for numbers (black/ chartruse dots & gold blade).

For bigger trout, Rapala Countdown and X-Rap.

They're basically little jig heads with a split-tail grub trailer. They are very small, coming in 1/64 oz size and I think a 1/80 0z size as well. You can either jig them with very slight twitches of your rod, or "deadly drift" them, which is when you throw on a bobber or float however far away from the jig you want. You can either cast and slowly retrieve with this or cast it upstream if you are at a river and let the current move it a lot like fly fishing. The jigging method gets better results but the deadly drifting method is easier and works well, too. The jigs are cheap, too. I would definitely recommend looking into them.


fishing user avatarAnantha Patel reply : 

Trout magnets are useless in some places in Maryland. At the beginners of the season, the close access points next to the road are crowed with trout magnet rig users. There are what, 5 people in a pool, with heavy action or medium rods. I will be surprised if any trout bites one, for they are all now very "learned." Walk further downstream, get out a Mepps or any other small spinner, and an ultra light rod-medium light rod, and you are set.


fishing user avatarAnantha Patel reply : 

Plus, everyone seems to only catch bluegill on trout magnets. Better spend your money on spinners, they are time tested and true.

then I must be a nobody. Trout magnets are one of the most popular trout lures between me and many others in and around Massachusetts, as far as spinning gear goes. Like I said, there are situations where they are good and where they are not. Perhaps you have only fished them when they are not. I use spinners and spoons all the time and they do have a special place in my trout box, they catch fish, too. But when i'm fishing little river pockets or want a smaller presentation, my magnets do what I want them to. :Idontknow:

What works for you works for you. I was just saying my experience with something, that's all.

Great deal here: http://www.amazon.com/Panther-Martin-Best-Kit/dp/B000ZKNFW0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1441160468&sr=8-1&keywords=panther+martin

 

Doesn't break the bank, and Panther Martins work.


fishing user avatarWillBass24 reply : 

I've used trout magnets once but I only caught acoue on them but the best thing to use is the 1/8 ounce white rooster tail with a silver blade.


fishing user avatarbigbill reply : 

Joesfly black gnat

Wordens rooster tail spinner, silver blade, dressed white.

Panther Martin silver blade, dressed yellow

It's like throwing a spinnerbait vs a drop shot. If you need to cover water and find fish then yeah I may throw an inline spinner or a spoon but if I have some trout located I'm gonna be using a trout magnet or drifting a Berkley power egg by them. And rarely do I need to cover water for trout, there is only so much area for them to go to in a stream or river!


fishing user avatarSiebert Outdoors reply : 

Years ago that crickhopper was my go to bait.  I've caught some big trout off them.  Anymore I flyfish.

I don't know how many trout are at the hole in the river or stream you fish, but I have to cover allot off water, walking up the stream. Trout fishing is like hunting In water. Typically I just go with a rooster tail, I only change lures when a big fish steals it and breaks my line or it's worn out. Also the stream goes on for ever, , need to cover water, more water covered, more fish possible
