Big Trout Time

Site Sponsor
Lets start the year off right. Big trout are there and hungry, but picky on what they eat. Two trips in and still the best bait and almost the only bait the big ones will eat is the Berkley Havoc Grass Pig. The 5' swamp gas color is the best with watermelon catching a few. Yesterday at the end of the day I started tossing the Berkley Rib Shad 4.5' in swamp gas and it caught real good. This bait will definitely keep the smaller trout off the hook. We are only using a 1/4 oz jig head with these big baits so the lure doesn't fall too fast. This fishing is very weather dependent so be prepared to go on short notice, and yes I do have Lowrance radar to make it safer in the heavy fog that is prevalent on the good days.
