Re: trout on spinning gear
If you are river fishing the best bet is a spinner ( I like panther martin). I also use rainbow power bait, crickets, wax worms, mikes shrimp scented salmon eggs, etc.... The most important thing is hook size, I want a gold hook about the size of a piece of corn , can't rember the size but one salmon egg will hide the hook. I guess it could also depend on what area of the country you are fishing. If you get salmon eggs they will keep after they are open if you put them in the fridge. You want just enough weight to cast so that the bait will move along with the current.
