Hey Harpooner,

Hopefully not harpoons!?LOL

I guess it all depends on where you plan on trout fishing, whether it is stream/river, lake, gravel pit etc?

Harpooner where do you plan on fishing for trout. In a creek, river, lake, or pit? If we know more about where you were fishing then we could help you more on what baits to use for trout.

In lakes jigs tend to be the lure of choose for me. Jigs no bigger then 1/8 ounce. Twister colors that have worked for me a natural colors like blacks, browns and sometimes white. Size of jig is determend by the size of trout. For trout under 20 inches a 2 or 3 inch twister works best. Over 20 inches a twister as big as 5 inches can work great. By now the trout are deep because of the water temp. In the spring and fall look for trout less then 10 feet of water. Keep in mind they are very spooky, so long cast, or fish with a bobber, and light line are a must. When there deep like they are now use a fish finder to find the trout. Once found vertically jig over them or again use a bobber. When fishing with a bobber a worm works best. They tend to eat the worm fast so set the hook once the bobber goes down. If you keep missing trout then give them just a few seconds longer to eat the worm.

IF YOUR AFTER RAINBOWS IT'S HARD TO BEAT POWERBAITE, CORN OR MARSHMALLOWS ON A SLIP BOBBER.IF YOU LIKE TROLLING, USING A DOWNRIGGER WITH CRANKBAITES ARE PRODUCTIVE.

Johnson silver minnows work good for me. Let them sink a little off the cast to get some depth and then troll. If all else fails, you'll at least come up with a decent sized Northern!

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
