Husky jerks/X-raps for stream browns

Recommended Posts

I need to rekindle my stream fishing this year and having luck with bass in the past with suspending cranks such as Husky Jerks and X-raps I'm thinking they should work for bigger brown trout in streams. Anyone had luck with these? Any particular colors producing better than others? Thanks, later.

I have has some sucess on X-raps, usually in bright colors. I caught my Largest Brown off of a smallish chartrause colored one.

most definetly. They wil hit hard on the pause after a little twitch. They love them, My first bait on opener will be a purple perch glass husky jerk. Last year, Sunday of opener weekend, I caught and released a 28" male brown w/ a wicked chinhook. Beautiful fish... cool.gif

Sweet! Thanks guys, what sizes have been best? I'm thinking the #6 or 8 husky jerk or #8 Xrap? I've got the trout fever now, hankering for warm weather and mosquitoes! Haven't prowled the stream side jungle in a while, need to do some catching up.

I have caught large sized rainbows on in-land lakes with blaze orange and gold bottomed original floating rapalas. we cranked them really slow just rippling the water surface. The fish would follow like a muskie then slowly grab it. They seemed uninterested in all other prestations.

    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.
