Sorry for the delay. I haven't fished the Triple Double (though Ive fished similar flies). That much meat getting tossed and then stripped usually brings out the piggish browns. Try a variety of retrieves and pitch it into the nastiest of snags to find the fish you're looking for. As far as Moto's Minnow, I'm a big fan of the pattern, especially in white. I've caught both lake-run rainbows and browns as well as smallmouth on the pattern. Dead-drifting works, as does erratic retrieves to mimic a stunned baitfish.

Awesome! Thanks for the reply...I just tied these up and can't wait to try and use em'. I just finished tying up a few Home Invaders as well, really wanting to expanded my fishing not just only dries and nymphs. Want to start targeting big fish as opposed to just numbers of fish. I want to post down pics of there but can't figure out how.
