Lure for Trout-There is a small spring brook near here that is stocked with large German brown trout, weighing from two to seven pounds, and I have tried all ways to catch then and failed. What bait should I use? Are spinning baits any good? What time of day is best to fish for them?
I am sure that you will find the spinning baits very successful, especially the smaller and simpler kinds, such as the nickel plated casting spoon, or a small or medium sized trolling spoon, with the spoon either of nickel plated metal or of a mother of pearl. Fish in the evening and morning and on cloudy days, or at almost any time during the summer. Fish in the pools; keep out of sight, and cast the bait well out, drawing it in by spasmodic movements, about a yard of four feet at a pull. Let the bait get well down in the water. You may also be successful by using live shiner, a rather small one, hooked through the lips, or a lager one with the hook down through the mouth and out at the gill, then hooked into the side of the body well back, and the fish curved on the hook to make to spin when you draw it through the water. Use a small swivel above the snell.
