I've noticed my metal box is in need of restocking. I have several lures in there that I never use or if I do they don't produce. The ones I use all the time and that catch fish are all 1/4oz fished on 4lb or 6lb test. My personal favs are blk/yellow w/gold blade panther martins(#1 on my hit parade) and Kastys: metalic perch, brook trout and gold. Any suggestions on some 1/4oz metal that you like that I might want to add to my order. :smile:

Can't go wrong with Kastys, but I've had my best luck by far with silver/orange stripe. And like Whompus said, vary the size just like you would vary the retrieve to see what they want.

I am not much of a metal head, but when I do chuck metal, I throw a Rooster Tail...(blackcoach dog (BCD)), believe that's what it's called). One other one but they no longer make it. (BMT or BMD) ??? Anyone have that one I would buy it.

I also like the original Jakes. The spinner, is it Jakes Stream-a-Lure? Don't care for the newest style they make with the "red egg" on it. Hate it.

And Panther Martins. Gold blades prefer black body with yellow dots or yellow body with red dots.

Occasional Flat fish black with orange dots or froggy style. :smile:

1/6 oz. Gold Bouyants. It absolutely pounds trout in stream or lakes.

thanks for the feedback. You surprised me ,Slayer with the 1/16 oz. I have trouble keeping 1/8 oz from coming out of the water when I give them a little jerk. No one mentioned hook removal. I've been removing one and pinch down the barbs on the other two for a while now. Only difference I notice is it's much easier to remove the hook vs the treeble. I'm going to try leaving just one hook on my next trip and see how that goes.

No-1/6 oz. (one-sixth)The 1/4's work too but the 1/6 is better for moving water. Stays off the bottom longer.
