Hi, Guys the time for trout is about to come and this year we are focusing on lake trout, I made lots of spinners and flies this year, but for lake!!! i think plugs should work better. What do you say? :?:

Regards

Rapala countdown and Bomber long Magnum can produce good result (7 inch) as to target these fishes you may have to go below thermocoline and bring your lure from near surface. It is impossible to bring your spinner or spoon, bouncing on the rocky surface where these fishes hold. You can make your lure perform the same action with little chance of snag.

Using a rubber shad may also work.

Regards,

Ali.

i'd reckon if fishing from bank spinners size 3 would be gr8.try the small rapala, cleo, savage gear and halco plugs.if trolling nothing like fingerlings of trout as dead or live bait.trout as a species will predate on own kind.my experience in the lakes in kashmir has been with high altitude lakes of 14000ft.blue fox in no.3 is another good spinner there.

plugs in brown and rainbow trout patterns.size no more than 3-4 inches.weight 5 to 15 grams.if the lake is deep then deep divers.if rocky/full of stones then normal divers.depends where ur casting from.

I agree with kingfisher that the smaller plugs of 3-4 inches seem to work
well on trout in lakes.Try the following Rapala plugs:

.CD 5 RT (rainbow trout)
.F05 TR (brown trout)
.TD5 (Tail Dancer) in rainbow trout

I caught and lost my largest rainbow ( est. 4-5 lbs) in a New Zealand lake on a Rapala minnow in a brown trout pattern whilst casting from the shore.This was on a special edition lure made for Rex Hunt and I do not think it is available any more.

The good old Toby spoon in a brown trout pattern also catches large fish
and, if possible, try to get the following spoon (unfortunately sold only in NZ to the best of my knowledge):

.TURBO 10gm. made by Kilwell (also available in other weights)

These come rigged with a single hook to facilitate catch and release.

One thing you will have to watch out for is the amount of weed in lakes, which will foul the lures and you could possibly lose a few of them.
My experience is that this is a problem only in late summer, by which time the weeds are fully grown.

However, if there is adequate rainfall which covers the weeds by a few feet,you may be able to skim your lure above the weeds, which tend to hold a fair number of trout.

I have tried Johnson weedless silver spoons to get around this problem but not had any success (in catching trout ).

I may also experiment with soft plastics, using them as they are or perhaps rigging them to be weedless. Will keep you posted.
