what kind of bait do people use for trout fishing?

I have caught rainbows with a chunk of nightcrawler on a slip float system with light line. Use your vexilar to locate fish in deep water and vertical jig them.
I also have had luck with Berkley Power Bait for trout, it comes in a jar and you clump it onto your hook.

Good Luck,
Skeets

Hey Harpooner,

Hopefully not harpoons!?LOL

I guess it all depends on where you plan to
fish for trout, whether on streams/rivers,
lakes, gravel pits etc?

If your fishing from shore a slip sinker and a worm inflated. You can burn it out there a long ways. If your in a boat a crawler harness with a smaller blade is a killer. Panther Martins work good too. When there not in the mood to feed a single hook with worm and just enough lead to drift slow with gets them every time. Bring your sounder and find out what depths there useing. Alot of the time they will suspend over deep water above a cold layer of water, stay on top of that layer. These trout lakes are small and a good fishermen can figure them out in little time. Now is the time when your going to find big Mayfly hatches. Have your flyrod ready to go when the sun starts to set. When they start to emerge all He!! breaks loose and you wont catch jack squat with out a fly. Have fun.

    • Wow, I didn’t realize the lake was under that intense of pressure. I suppose I will try elsewhere if most of the trout have been taken out. Thanks for the advice! 
    • ...LOL, I did it again on Sunday as well. I used 21-40 ct shrimp and grilled up some chicken breast ahead of time that were added before the pan went on the grill.... pretty spot on!
    • Thanks for coming back with a review. They look like they should work well but I'm wondering if they allow slack in the line at the trip and let the fish off the hook?  I use dipsy's and a few other divers for deep trolling Walleye's in late summer.  Fun stuff when their out there. 🙂
    • All the little Trout ponds around the cities get hit like this on opener. More or less a "Put and take" fishery.  
    • Wow that is some high density fishing pressure!!!
    • This is a couple years old but I happened to stumble on it again today and I’m not really a big fan of the slide divers myself after giving them a shot. Maybe I’m doing something wrong but they seem more of a hassle than just the plain old, but effective, Dipsy diver     
    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
