lures for trout

Postby simon2g » Tue Apr 30, 2013 12:03 am

well i'll be able to start fishing again soon (currently recovering from surgery on a broken elbow which had metal wires in there and in a splint for a while..) once it comes off i can head off to the water to wet a line. Never fished for trout before so would like to know which lures to invest in and what colors work well etc, i've heard rapala cd-5's work well in rainbow/brown trout colors... read there good in 3'-6' water which would be ideal for most streams/creeks and rivers.. iunless encountered a very deep pool. anyway if you wouldnt mind let us know which lures you like to use for trout specis and how you work the lure.. cheers

If you are fishing creeks the 'Floaters' (original) Rapala may be better. Less chance of snagging when they hit the water. The CD's are better if the water is deeper. When you are fishing a deeper hole, just let them sink a bit before you retrieve. They are better for casting with the weight but they don't seem to have as good as action as the floaters. The colors you mention are fine also look at the 'perch' pattern (if there is redfin where you go) and the 'minnow' pattern. I wouldn't get too many lures to start with also.

Whilst I haven't used it the Strike Pro Smelta has a good reputation.

last but not least, Blue Fox Vibrax spinners!
thanks

Tassie Devils are where I have had all my luck, particulary any with pink in them. I take a selection of colours with me and just rotate them through until I hopefully find the colour that works on the day.

Yeah thanks heaps for the very helpful information guys! Since ill be walking the streams to cover ground i'll be changing my lure often to account for deepness of water and varying colors to see what works. Not a problem however all in a days work out in the beautiful scenery!

Travis, iv caught a few good trout using those Kmart Super trouts too. The orange and black one was the one I had the best success on. They have a super bream one also that swims a bit deeper. Not bad for cheapies, swim good and catch fish. Like the little Strike pro's too.

thanks fellas.. think ill grab myself a few different lures, couple cd5's in browbn/rainbow and fl's and maybe a few vibrax's since i found a deal on ebay 6 for $11... only problem is they're 6.8g in weight, too heavy for streams or ok ?

The weight is not so much an issue except for the fact that the heavier weight equals a larger size blade! If the current is strong they are not ideal. They are not too bad casting upstream and retrieving rapidly towards you with the current. If you are retrieving them against or across strong current they may have a tendency to break the surface and skip along the top unless retrieved very slowly. Do yourself a favor and make sure you include a Minnow (MN) pattern Rapala in the mix (see link below)
