Ultra Light lures

Recommended Posts

What ultra light lures do you guys have great luck with when it comes to wading or fishing small streams?

I know ultra lure fishing will catch anything from panfish up to bass.

any colors/types you use that you can share?

I have had luck on very small rapala crankbaits for bass and crappie. I also have had luck on black rooster tails with a silver blade when fishing for trout.

My ultra light spinnerbaits in blood red, black, and white have done well and in cooler water temps allow for a slower retrieve. Ive used many different tubes meant for panfish but generally only for white bass.

I caught so many smallmouth on the rebel wee craw it's for sure my favorite ultra light crank also catch a lot of panfish on it too!

so it sounds like all ul lures are fair game......

Pretty much.  Inline spinners, small crankbaits, and small tubes and grubs especially do a good job for stream smallies, panfish, and trout. I don't think color matters that much, but I like black, golds, oranges, yellows, and reds in the streams I usually fish, which have a brownish stain.

#1 super special top secret bait for this situation:

1/8 oz panther Martin spinner. Black one with yellow dots and the good blade. 

Might look like this (notice it's already tied on)

1/16 and 1/8 ounce Rooster Tails.  I try and stick to the lighter colors.

Sassy shads and grubs on small jig heads, rooster tails, rebel craws, crickhoppers, and beetle spins.

One lure I haven't seen mentioned yet is 1/8 kastmaster spoons. These have the benefit of casting much farther than other lures in the same weight class.

The smallest two sizes of Rebel Craw. It seems everything in a creek will bite that.

Grubs, tube jigs, 1/16 or 1/8 Roadrunners, Rebel Miniatures like the Bumblebug.

Yo Zuri Pins Minnow

Small Rooster tails (longer blades spin closer to the body and have less lift, which is helpful in faster currents of a river).

TINY Kastmasters or Pheobe spoons

Road runners, beatle spins, very small crankbaits, and a bait called the Inch Minnow.

1/8oz Yellow Rooster Tail.  It'll catch anything in a creek or river.

if i'm not throwing the black/gold one i showed above, it's the same size and brand, but yellow w/ red dots and silver blade.

if you can't catch on one of those two, there may not be any fish in your waters!

I know we're getting off topic here, but where do you get one with red dots?  Is it a Worden's?

Streams? In-line spinners, beetlespins, small spinnerbaits, small grubs, lots of stuff.

If you have a couple feet of depth, I love tossing the Strike King Bitsy Pond Minnow...
