Re: new to trout fishing... lure recommendations
I'd get a mixed bag of sizes and colors of those panther martins, mepps, and blue fox lures. Depends on the day and size of trout in terms of size of lure! The number 2s are good--you can catch small to mediums on those. I probably wouldn't go over a size 4. Plain silver and firetiger have been good to me. Kastmasters, for trout I like the brown trout pattern, the holographic silver, and the plain silver. I'd go 1/4 ounce on those, 1/8 ounce if the fish are less than say 12 inches. Let me know if you find a place that has those kastmasters in stock and don't tell anyone else please. Original floating rapalas are good, firetiger, brown trout, rainbow trout. I will also endorse the Taz devils. Pink has been good to me lately.
