So not sure if this will go anywhere but giving it a shot.  :smt001

So when the weather starts to turn as we move into winter I start leaning towards fishing lakes. Not like i have been to many but working on that. Mostly to trout fish from my yak. Unfortunately the lakes I am close to are small and with just regular stockers that are replenished every few weeks because they get so much pressure. Don't get me wrong, some of them plant some bruisers to make up for the quality of the fight of some great lakes with hold overs that fight well.

So my post is about posting your favorite trout lure . It would be interesting to see some of people's favorite. I will start off with a few regulars and get into more favorites if there is input.   :smt003

Pictured is the rapala j-7 floating. Your standard go to . firetiger and trout pattern.

Enjoying my Family.

Hard to beat a Kastmaster or little Cleo.
If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck I'd swim to the bottom and never come up.

Those stocked trout have never seen lure or power bait when they were raised at a hatchery.  Just gotta put your time in and time it right when they are feeding.  Rapala J7 and 9 are my favorites.

A great spinner, one of my favorites since I was a kid.  The size 6 has caught me probably thousands of trout over the years.


As for my favorite trout lure: it's tough to only pick one, but the one I'm fishing with a lot this year is the P-Line Laser Minnow jigging spoon.  It works great for rainbows, browns, mackinaw, kokanee, landlocked Chinook...pretty much all salmonids.  You can use it at all depths.  And the strikes are often vicious.  I always have a handful of them with me on the lake.

Definitely some truth to that. But I also believe that color and type of lure can come in to play as well. When I was fishing lake mcswain 1st week of October, me and my father went through several types of lures before finding some that worked better than others. When I finally switched to

I was killing it. Tried that at shadow cliffs with no luck. Will post the lure that I caught 2 in a row at shadow cliffsif I get enough interest in this topic.  :smt005  Now remember the responses I got about shadow cliffs about no one doing well the weeks before I caught two nice ones with my secret lure ,I also left before 12:00.  . Toot toot .  :smt044

Pictures on the lures please if ya got um. I am a visual guy.

Both are right depending on conditions.
Sunny, fish the bright color. Cloudy, fish the darker color.
Before I got into fly fishing PMs were my go-to lure in the streams and they killed it, even in the coldest of water.

Does anybody have better success using flashers / dodgers while trolling?  Lets say within 30 ft depth.

What VK said.

If you throw a panther martin, and do not catch a fish in five casts...there are no fish there.
Live your life, the way you want to be remembered. Don't have any regrets, we only get this one dance to make it count. Start at your eulogy, and work backwards.

yup VK selection is what I use lol

especially the PM in black body with 4 dots or 3 with the gold blade is my go to lure!

The KM is what I use first since you can cover a lot of water. Blue/silver or gold. Fan cast and vary the retrieve. No bite move on.
