I traded an old rod of mine that was in really bad shape for a brand new Huddleston trout and my choice of Mattlures male or female Blue Gill. Can I fish the trout with success you think in bodies of water where trout might not be present? Which Blue Gill should I get from Mattslures the male or female Blue Gill?

Sure, chuck away.  You catch on spinnerbaits in lakes that don't have schools of  spinnerbaits right?

;)

I like the male bluegill.

I'd chuck 'em!

For year round fishing, I'd go with the female bluegill. For spring and summer I'd go with the male. Are they both used? If so, then I would go with the one in better condition.

No their brand new, and your right people can catch them on spinnerbaits but not all colors in one body of water unless you use that one color exclusivly til you do. Only reason I asked instead of just chucking away is because its an expensive swimbait, no use puttin wear on it if they wont bite. I know theyd work in some lakes near me where trout are present but the few ponds I go to have no trout. BTW, does anyone know how long both of these baits would last, and I mean by how many fish aproximatly and/or time.

That's true, didn't think about the cost aspect.

I guess a better answer would be........................I did.

I didn't catch anything though,lol  Didn't give it enough chance to be honest.

lol I am going to have to use the stiffest rod I got. While were on the subject are their any other swimbaits that live up to the quality of Huddleston and Mattslures?

Where I live bass have never seen a trout and will never see one..... trout lures will catch them big mommas.

Raul, do you know any other companies (maybe japanese) that make swimbaits that are on the level of Mattlures and Huddleston? I saw a guy fishing on Lake Erie with one last year that you had to tie on in the center of the lure and drop fish it. It looked amazing..

Castaic manufactures several soft plastic trout baits. www.castaicsoftbait.com; but unless you have to don 't purchase them there, they are quite expensive t their site, TW has a good selection an at much more affordable price.

Ooo It's great enough you can write that much!! I'm impressed  8-)

They cost a bunch, and I don't have the $$ nor the equipment to use them so I'll stick with Senkos and Cranks for now.

Game,

Check out: www.swimbaitnation.com , www.***.com , and I think the one you are looking for is the Slide Jack, it is a wacky rigged hard swimbait: www.lobinalures.com , look in the swimbait section

Sure, a trout patterned swimbait will work in lakes without trout. I have caught several bass up to 12.5 lbs from Clear Lk. Cal, which is a large, natural lake with no trout.

However, in non-trout lakes, it just falls back to the big bait, big fish principle. In other words, while they will still work, I don't believe they would "hold a monopoly" over the big bass in that lake, the way that they, do in trout-fed lakes.

Peace,

Fish
