Have a couple pics of the trout I caught at the derby saturday that you might enjoy seeing. Had pics of Steve's fish but they vanished into computer land. My fish was caught on my old faithful Taz lure. We lost over three reeling them in and had around 4 drive byes.

We stayed in the big water side of big and little hat. Used a long oval pattern. Have caught 4 to 6 lb fish in this area in the past and with a lot of boats between the hats and dam, we stay in the open waters. Hope this helps ya out.

Nice fish! I just picked up a few of those Taz lures, and like them, but they are a little spendy. What color(s) do you like best, if you don't minding sharing that?

Thanks!

Taz lures are made by wigstons and Steve's fishing supplies has a great selection of them. We mostly use the 13.5 weight. Mostly use three colors, being, foxy lady, rainbow trout, and fire tiger. Go here to learn about them Tasmanian Devil Lures - Wigston's Lures Australia - Tasmanian Devil Lures (http://www.fishnet.com.au/wigstonslures/index.html) I remove the wire insert and hook, and go one size larger trebble hook, then a red bead, then the lure body, with a 6' leader of 8 lb/10lb florocarbon with a swivel. they are pricey but bullet proof. No dodger or flasher needed. We top line about 200' back. Hope this helps.
