I know Tyler from Team CO.F.F loves them but the J-Spec is quickly becoming my favorite jerk bait for browns. Love the HD Trout as well but man some of these fish just swallow them and end up dying. This is my first time eating brown trout. AJ from Out Fished Angling says they are the best tasting trout. I still like the 15 - 20 inch lakers better. I personally think the browns are too dry now that I've tried them.
