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.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
