My fav is a Panther martin spinner. The one with a silver blade, yellow body, and red spots. Size depending on where I'm fishing.

Same as jpt ;D any panther with yellow body, and red dots. Or a blue fox, rainboy trout.... the ones that acually look like fish with a spinner.

To be honest I brought 3 lures to my last mountain trip. All three were PMS and 2 were the same yellow body/red dot lures. the other was the black body yellow spot one. I've only used them in lakes however.

any chance theres someone out there willing to share some info on decent spots on the ark in the buena vista area. Pm me. i can assure you it will stay confidential. We have one spot we are going to but if the fish arent biting there i dont really have a backup plan lol. unless antero magically still has open water like the report a week ago said. after this cold weather i would highly doubt that its even a possibility

Hard to go wrong with a PM, I fished them for 30 some years with great success. Minnow type baits always have their place, my current go to is the HD in BA or gold. Rooster tails seem to work well for some, never did it for me though.

The Godfather of jerkbaits Rapalas,, hands down the most lethal thing to throw in a river.
Jeebus cripes... I wish Rapala would give you some free lures already. How much you gonna kiss their arse. ;D

Rapalas (hj, cd, flt, and x-raps), Thomas Bouyants & Colorados, Blue-fox Vibrax spinners, and tube jigs are my favorites.
