Powerbait or spinners for stocked trout

Recommended Posts

I’ve always had good luck throwing panther martins for stalked trout. Sometimes a spoon or rooster tail would be the ticket. If I had to use bait it would be fireballs in the blue top and corn.

 

powerbait was like my last option.

Little cleos or a micro jig under a bobber.

I always lean towards lures, many already mentioned above.   I'd add joes flys to the list of spinners.  

 

Powerbait definity works but they tend to swallow it so you might kill the fish.  If you go that route I'd suggest trying salmon eggs also.  Pautzkes fireballs.

Taking a bunch of kids fishing today and rigged them all up with 1/16 oz chartreuse roadrunners with 2” Powerbait Grubs in Pumpkinseed. That’s a killer combo! So many anglers underestimated the effectiveness of Grubs, especially for stocked trout. 

 

They were great for sight fishing too because you can finesse them slowly in a school and usually always pick out a gullible fish as opposed to burning inline spinners past em
