first it depends on if i am in a boat or walking a stream......... in a boat it would depend on what i am fishing for, kokanees....macks, browns,,,,rainbows.... ok, i see i opened a can of worms........hmmm maybe worms would work.... ok,, in a boat, i need dodgers and needlefish..... on a stream.. worms in early season... gold kastmaster........ok wait........ my favorite bait and lure.. sorry i got carried away............in my boat, it is a red wedding ring spinner........ bait would be worms.. on a stream the lure would be a gold kastmaster... the bait would be a worm threaded onto a # 8 hook.

Bait: Fat, four-inch-plus Lahontan redside Tahoe shiner. Of course, this would be illegal on any other lake. Still my favorite, for what it does for me on my home water.

Lure: AC Skinny rainbow trout pattern plug, anywhere there are trophy trout.

Bait: Live crawlers or live hoppers.

Lure: Kastmaster or Rainbow Needlefish (whoever turned me on to that one in a previous thread is my new hero by the way). ::)

Rainbow needlefish have been my previous favorite ultralight casting lure forever! I love that you can SUPER slow retrieve and jig it without gaining much depth for enticing picky fish into striking.

New favorite UL spin lure is a F03 Rapala though. Need to do a back to back with the Needlefish. I suspect different waters and conditions (lakes, not moving) may tip the balance one way or the other.

Bait? Who uses bait! :) (Okay, inflated crawlers gets my vote).

bait-crawlers behind a flasher



09-08-2008, 12:11 PM
Without a doubt - Gold Kastmaster.

Tan caddis pupah or an adams. You spin guys sure have some odd ways to catch trout ::)

Captain Compassions Old School Trout Kit.

With the exception of trolling and Pyramid this accounts for over 95% of all the trout I catch.


09-08-2008, 06:41 PM
I forgot the bait part. Definitely Roe. Works great in rivers and lakes!

09-08-2008, 07:35 PM
#12 black woolly bugger lightly weighted with a touch of flash in the tail

09-08-2008, 11:30 PM
Bait: Crawlers
Lure: Silver Kastmaster.... Thomas Bouyant in rainbow pattern a very very close second...I've had my biggest trout on that one

09-09-2008, 05:45 AM
Trolling definitely J-Raps. In streams CD-Raps and for bait; Roe and Sucker meat in places where itís legal.

09-09-2008, 04:19 PM
Don't fish with bait much anymore- I've found that finding fish is tougher than catching them... Every now and then I use bait, especially if I'm trying to put a newbie on some fish.

Hammered gold Cop-E-Cat- anywhere from 1/4 oz to 2 oz is "preferred", but you gotta' have a few options or you won't catch fish.
