Will a trout hit a flat sided crankbait or is that just a bass thing?

Never tried for trout but I'm sure if you find the right color and size it will work, I'm going to try next time out,I'll get back to you

yes it works, I have caught trout on the little chrome rattle traps. when the trout are feeding they will hit anything if you present the right color and lure speed. The only reason I tried it was the water was muddy and I thought maybe something loud will get there attention. well it did that is the nice thing about the two rod stamp. you can soak bait on one rod, and experiment with the other.

as for rattletraps I have noticed that they seem to work better when the fish are active because the bait needs to move at a fairly quick speed in order for the action to really kick in. they work good at Amador
