Spinners

Recommended Posts

I am new to raps and spinners this year. I have always used live bait and love it. I have bought various spinners and raps, with not much luck. I picked up some super bow spinners. Does anyone actually catch trout like they claim? I love the way they look in the water, but I have not caught a single trout using this spinner. If anyone does good with them what technique do you use? I cast upstream and real down, with no luck I've tryed every other way (down, across, ect.). I would love any info out there for this spinner, as well as other artificial baits.

Okay MUM!

The least I can offer as far as help is Panther Martins have been a great spinner for me. Also, what size trout are you after? If you are fishing a stream where a 6" Brookie is big you will need to downsize your lures.

My go-to spinner is the Vibrax by blue fox, the gold color is hard to beat, I have found in every stream I have fished it will outfish any other spinner in my box.

Trout are opportunistic feeders and are very well adapt to eating things that are flying by in the current. So the best technique in my opinion is to cast the spinner upstream and across the current and retreive it fast enough to spin the blade and keep it off the bottom. This will draw the lure through the hole and swing it downstream.

I like this better than casting downstream for two reasons: One is most everything trout eat is moving dowmstream so it is more natural to them, and second of all, a spinner looks like nothing naturally found in the stream, therefore you are not allowing them time to inspect the lure as it is moving slowly upstream, rather the trout will strike the lure out of instinct as if goes flying by them.

That is what I have tuned my approach down to.

I use #5 raps, thinking about trying a 7 but they seem too big, i mainly use the rainbow #5 floater to be exact, i've caught 2 small trout on it, oddly it was brooks both times in a mainly brown creek. I use the super bow spinners without luck, and smaller panther martins, with out much luck either. Are there specific colors other than gold to use? I use the gold/gold bows. Tryed a green bladed martin also. Any helps appreciated. Im torn on Trout Day because that is the WI opener, and man there are some lunkers over there, so I think I may end up flipping a coin, though Trout Day sounds great, I don't know. Thanks for the help. Also does anyone know is trout out of the vermillion are safe to eat?
