what if you already know where the trophy is?


I’d still go artificials more often than not, at least if you’re talking worms. That big fish isn’t always going to be by itself, and small-medium Trout attack worms like no tomorrow. I’d rather start with a #15 on a known big fish, then toss a big jig or Frick’s Fix after a short rest if the spinner doesn’t bring them out.

I like 1/8 or 1/4 ounce Mister Twisters in a pink and white coloration, at least for Brookies. Small green or brown tube jugs can be good too.

Ha!

That's our old go to for walleye and crappie.

Never occurred to me to try it on trout although I have used other twister colors.

Now that you brought it up though, might work for browns in those deep dark holes.


Will be in the box next outing.

I like the color quite a bit, seems like enough to get their attention but a slow enough presentation that it’ll draw strikes when spinners are too much.

What length are your twisters? I usually just use marabou crappie style jigs, but I might have to try those.

Main reason I avoid worms on trophy hunts is that I tend to just catch all the chubs the monsters are getting fat on LOL
