Postby Scattergun2570 » Tue Apr 11, 2017 12:57 pm

Ok,,so I fish NYS reservoirs.. Browns and Lakers.. I know Crocodiles work..and live bait..but what stuff in the Rapala Line would work? I figure some of the Bass hard baits I have,may be useful for Trout..what do ya think?

Of course… they’re predators too you know. Realize they’ll target smaller prey relative to body size and stick to shiners. Gold, Silver, Metallics and such often your best bet.

I use the duo small shad baits. Got trout from 9" to 5 lbs on them and the kvd squarebill in 1.0.... These got it done for me, but now i live in the south so i share this info.

Jointed Rapalas, Shad Raps, Tail Dancers, and any of the lipless cranks would likely work. I've had success jigging Rattlin' Raps for lakers, as well as using a yo-yo retrieve when they are "shallow" in the spring (in 10-20').

Lucky craft pointers are one of the best baits I have used for trout.
The 65 is amazing at catching large trout for such a small bait.

Pointer 48s work even better

Jerk Jerk pause. Pointers suspend very well. Cadence depends of course. Where I fish for trout they like to hit on the pause. My other small jerkbaits don't get bit as much because they sink.
