What is your favorite/must have trout fishing lures?

I was looking at buying some YO-ZURI SNAP BEAN's. Anyone have luck with the beans?

Thought about posting under the trout forum, but I like to hear it straight from the rochester guys..

#1. 1/2 nightcrawler or crappie minnow on a small panfish hook with a splitshot 12" up the line

#2. brook trout pattern floating rapala

#3. roostertails/panthermartin/mepps, spinners

i have never tried flyfishing, im guessing i'd just end up with a huge mess of line,branches, and probably myself, but i'm sure flys work great too

It's hard to beat the old night crawler or red worm for trout. When I'm not using a worm my old stand by are panther marting lures. My favorite is a gold blade with a black body. I've found that panther martin's are alot easier to make the blade spin especially in faster moving water.

#1: Silver blue fox vibrax spinner (These are awesome, very good internal swivel)

#2: Gold or Black floating rapala's or Husky Jerk's bigger is usually better than small...otherwise you can't cast em worth a darn.

#3: Rooster tail (White or Yellow)

#4: Panter martin's

Hey Meaney, I have used the Snap Bean. They are not very good lures I had to do some major adjusting just to get them to run strait. They are also very light and make it tough to cast them. If you are looking for small crank bait I think it is Strike King that makes good small crank baits. I use them in the summer for crappie.

I've used the snap beans with good success before to locate crappies - and agree with the observation they are difficult to cast.

My favorite trout lures when I lived down there were:

1: Yozuri Pin's minnow - same size as the #7 Rap - brook trout color.

2: Yozuri Pin's minnow - same size as the #7 Rap - rainbow trout color.

3: Yozuri Pin's minnow - same size as the #7 Rap - any other color.

I really like the way the Yozuri casts and retrieves with a tight wobble and have had my best days with them.

With that said I've seen Jim W. do amazing things with those Raps.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
