so what do you use? how do you rig your hooks / weights etc.?
All we use is ZRays. They're awesome!!!
Depends on your trout/forums/images/icons/wink.gif. Up in these parts I've had a lot of success with Panther Marten spinners. I would also consider using a Len Thompson spoon, either a Red Devil or an orange and black Five of Diamonds. Kamloopers work nicely as well. For deeper holes I use a Rapalla Countdown RT-5. The Bow River is primarily a Brownie river, but there's the odd Rainbow and lots of smaller Brookies.
Whatever lure you use, tie right to the lure and don't use swivels or leaders- they scare fish. A 6lb line is adequate, but just in case I would step up to 8 lbs. Go for Spiderwire.
I'm not a fishing king, but I'm on the river at least twice a week so I kinda know my stuff by now. In fact last week, I caught myself a lovely 2 1/2 lb Brown./forums/images/icons/smile.gif
Get ahold of me if you need any clarification. I kinda assumed you've already fished, amd if not saome of what I wrote above may seem Greek/forums/images/icons/wink.gif!!!
What the hell is a Kamlooper? KastMasters work well too. I get tired of the powerbait fishing.
Pretty deep question for me. I have quite a full tackle box. Never know what they want to eat. I will generally tray for 1/2 hour before trying something else.
Ok, I'm sharing a secret. I have a small can of WD-40 in my box that I occasionally use for bait scent.
I've heard bass like hay. You throw a bale of hay where your gonna fish. Apparently they have a sweet tooth for it.
That would be chumming. I do not suggest that.
I love spiderwire. I have got snagged, and when I got loose, the hook was straightened out. That stuff don't break. Casts real nice too.
An old crank telephone with the wires into the water works pretty good.
So does a M100...But wouldn't suggest it...LOL
yea I've fished - I've figured out the bass (in the only lake withing 200 miles that has bass), but the trout still have me stumped (lake fishing).
for spinners I use blue fox, and have had them hit better then panther martin, or meps.
tried using red devils, and I've never even had a bite on them.
I can't find kamloopers anywhere - so I have idea what that is.
I haven't tried spiderwire, but have heard lots of good stuff about it.
so, if you were bait fishing how would do you guys rig your lines?
If I have a floating bait, I use about 2-1/2' to 3' of leader. Use floating bait where there is alot of weeds and such so your bait stays above it all. With non floating bait, I only use about 1' of leader. Wheight depends on what keeps it on the bottom. I use a swivel between my leader and main line to prevent tangles. I also like the sliding wheights.
A case of Corona, a box full of a dynamite and a pair of earrings is all I need..............
wd-40 kicks ass on stiper but it is illeagel out here now
All the blue... it hurts my eyes...
I went this weekend and we used corn and worms. My dad caught 17 nice trout in 2 days. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I didn't catch a thing! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
