Storm

 

Smithwick

 

Rapala

 

Renosky

 

They all catch fish just have to be in the right area, depth, and right weather conditions.

storm is my favorite but have had success on a variety of spoons and sticks combinations that include orange gold black or pink/watermelon.  and always have a firetiger/perch pattern.  I have decided that color catches everything must suck to be  perch.

2 favorites; (1) Thunderstick in Firetiger

                   (2) Bay Rat in Oscar's Revenge (very similar to the newer style thunderstick called "Erie Ugly"

Very honorable mention; Thunderstick's Billy Baroo (discontinued and nearly impossible to find)

Over the years, it's been this:

 

P4190002.jpg

 

3 1/2" Smithwick in the old log perch pattern.  Sadly they no longer make it in that smaller size only the 4 1/2" and gave it a different name.

 

I think it is just about the most perfect goby imitation out there.  I'm down to only 2 or 3 left in my box :doh:

Paul,

   I spoke to the Bay Rat guys while at the Niagra Falls show and they said that a "Billy Baroo" was on the drawing board.  I didn't

know that it had been released yet.  Undoubtedly, a soon to be favorite brown trout bait.

Usually done with sticks come May 1st.  By then I am all spoons.  Baits like Dreamweaver SS would be an excellent bet for browns.  I run a lot of Northport nailers also.

It hasn't been released yet. With some "prodding", a few of us got Bay Rat to make a few prototypes and we ran them last year. They performed very well and you will be seeing them on the site soon I'm sure.

In clear and green water, the various Live Target smelt baits have been very productive. Juvenile BaitBall jerk baits too.
