      I don't know anything about fishing but this thread reminds me of the "gone fishing" smilie we used to have over at the AV123 forum. Don't everybody thank me at once.

        Big bass fisherman here. When I have fished for trout, I used Mepps spinners, worms, and fly fished for them on occasion. I would say trying some spinners, easy to find and to fish with. Good luck!
        Hopefully some TCA products in the near future!

            I mostly fly fish for trout now but have and still occasionally fish for them with light spinning gear.

            First, use no greater than 6# test line, or you won't get many bites as trout have very good vision. :shiftyeyes: You should also tie your lures direct to your line for the same reason, so don't use a snap or snap swivel or any unnecessary hardware.

            Second, bring and use a landing net and set your drag a little on the lighter side, as trout (especially big ones) love to try a last ditch hard run when they see you or the boat. Many big trout are lost trying to be landed by rookies. :hissyfit:

            And lastly, lures that work well include spinners, (especially Rooster Tail's in black, brown, and yellow); Small twister jigs in white or yellow ; and small spoons. My all time favorite trout lure for trolling or casting is a Pistol Pete. This is basically a wooly bugger looking fly with a propeller spinner on the front. Black, brown, and olive are the best colors. For trolling or casting these or even small Rooster tail spinners, put a few small split shot on your line about two feet ahead of the lure. A slow steady retrieve is usually best, and let them sink about three to five feet down, and hang on!:biglaugh:

            What type of water will you be fishing, stream or lake/pond?

              Great advise ! thanks everyone.:huge:

              I will be fishing a DNR stocked pond . They are the rainbow and Brown trout.

              To many trees close to the shore line for fancy fly fishing (Can't do it anyway)

              The water looks fairly clear with at least 6 foot of visability.

                For trout fishing I have always used worms, shotguns or clubs.:fryingpan:

                    Mepps spinner with a worm. If they are biting they'll jump in the boat. If not, fuggedaboutit...

                      In that case the lures may not make all that much of a difference. Depending on how old the fish are when the DNR stocks the pond they can be pretty easy to catch. There's some stocked lakes around here that parents can't wait to open because it's so easy for kids to catch fish. You just grab a handful of sand/dirt from the shore and throw it in and the fish think it's feeding time and all rise to the surface in a frenzy - I've seen people catch fish with a bare hook doing that.

                      Other than that mlbrand had top notch advice. I started out with a spinner and then switched to fly fishing. It's really not hard to pick up (though I'm nowhere near what I'd call "good") and I find moving up and down river to find the fish and standing in the water almost half the fun.

                      Make sure you have your license with you! Never know when that DNR ranger is going to pop up and ask to see it.

                        Karl's right, sadly some of these "stocker" fish bite best on Power Bait and other stuff like that. All they know is food pellets! So you might pick up some Power Bait and some small trout hooks (very important). Mold the Power Bait around the hook, and pinch on a split shot or two a few feet above, let it sink to the bottom and hang on. But that's a boring way to fish if you ask me, so try the spinners first!
