MVP Brown Trout Bait

Recommended Posts

With the count down to spring brown trout fishing starting I thought it would be interesting to see everyone's best brown trout bait from last year.

I had a tough time for them last spring but my best bait was the storm jr thunderstick in prismflash gold shiner and got a few on a gold vibrax spinner with a 3/8 keel weight.

DW super slims and Bay Rat stickbaits. Deadly combo!

I took the hook off a vibrax spinner added a 18" fluro and a slow death hook add worm and bingo. Never saw a trout refuse a juice worm, Smithwicks and bay rats, the goby rat worked the best and old faithful Smithwicks orange bottom with a gold/black top.

Bobby Fuller's FLT goby spoons. Various Jr Thunderstick in natural/dark colors. To be fair, I haven't given the Bay Rat sticks a ride yet. Soon.

:yes:   I'll 2nd the DW Super Slims. Glow frog and goby lookalikes  were good to us. Also FLT King of Kings.

i have multiple special mate boxes full of just "Brown Trout" lures....hundreds of them (I fish for browns more than any other lake O species).

 

However, if I could only use ONE lure for browns, just one, for the rest of my life, it would be the riplin redfin.

I wish they made a slightly smaller version!

well, here ya go.

 

the "new" versions are ripplin redfins (extra "p"), the older versions were "riplin" redfins.....both work.

 

they are a little bigger than the lures it appears you guys run on the south shore, however, while we don't have the numbers of browns you guys have, our average size is slightly bigger.....

 

a 6lbs brown (which is our average size) inhales a ripplin redfin without issue.

I upsize the front and back treble to a #4 Gammy 2x rb, and remove the middle treble.

 

blue/silver, black/silver, or the older purple versions work best for my boat.
