Top 10 baits for brown trout
Growing popularity of fishing in the style of Stream Trout led me to ranking the lures the best for fishing on the course. With this Arsenal of lures, you can learn to catch trout in all conditions, whether a forest stream or a big river.
- 1. Pontoon21 Trait TB #0
This rotating spinner occupies the first place in my rating. Even a year ago I would have put it high on the fifth place. The reason for this rise in confirmation of its universality. It deserves a more detailed story.
It so happened that in the summer of 2016 I was able to visit the far East of our vast country. Had a chance to catch on fast mountain rivers with a decent stream from the shore and from a boat drifting along. In these circumstances, not knowing the characteristics of the river, I often start fishing with spinners. It is easy to use and relatively inexpensive, it is not a pity to lose. A relatively narrow lobe Trait has a small opening — about 30 degrees, which allows you to comfortably fish in conditions of flow. The core of this “urasaki” made of tungsten, making the bait heavier and allows you to throw more accurately and much further. Another important plus: weighted tungsten core allows you to quickly change the horizon of wiring, and this makes the lure perfect for finding fish. The model was so efficient that on its account absolutely all the predators of the taiga river: not only the Siberian grayling and two types Lenkov, but the most important trophy — the owner of the taiga river trout, the weight of which was 10 or 8 kg. And my “spinner” coped with such a worthy opponent!
TB Trait #0 is well proven in the sports and trout fishing in the style of Stream Trout. I can say with confidence that most athletes have it in your Arsenal. The reason — well-established work, and this despite the fact that sport fishing is forbidden on the edge of the hooks, which all athletes are removed. In Amateur I leave it as it stabilises the play of the lure, and increases the number of bites of the fish.
- 2. DUO Toto 48SP
Toto 48SP is a Wobbler, which is every angler-sportsman. The lure has earned the affectionate nickname “Totoga” or “Toto,” and on account of its many victories in competitions of various level. Best Toto manifests itself in areas of rivers with moderate flow and relatively shallow depths. Typically, these places like to choose for their Parking trout. Not less effectively it works Wobbler and on the fast shallow riffles, where it can be done in a small horizon — 25 cm Basic style transactions — twitching. The game is very sweeping and chaotic. It is on dash wiring Toto 48SP reveals its full potential. The force of the pulls should be adjusted to the activity of the fish. Good Toto and for fishing on the drift. I note that the lure is very responsive to load changes and easy to learn. Marking SP indicates neutral buoyancy. This quality is very useful when fishing for inactive fish, allows you to make a pause in the right horizon, thereby provoking the attack.
- 3. Pontoon21 GagaGoon 45SR
It’s certainly one of the favorites of the Kuban athletes in the sport of trout fishing (the nickname bait — Gaga). No less popular it is and Amateur fishing. Its main trump card — a unique game. Thanks to the prismatic form of the body (PBD – Prism Body Design) and the balancing system (KKBS — Koto Koto Balanced System), consisting of two different weight polupodvizhnym balls, bait demonstrates what is called mincing gait, very reminiscent of the movement of small baitfish in the current. While Gaga retains the distinctive and the stop point during the dive. Motion GagaGoon 45SR much in common with the popular movements Sumari 48S, but have a number of advantages, the main of which — the range and accuracy zabrosa, a much lower price, great colours and, very importantly, three types of buoyancy, and a more powerful hooks. Best animation for the crank I think short of pulling the rod tip with short stops. The decoy behaves as a fry, trying to escape from a predator against the force of the current. Equally effective and posting jerk, but jerks should be of low intensity. With this method of animation Gaga hits the “steps” on the sides, while retaining the characteristic festinating movement.
- 4. DUO Ryuki 45S
Another avowed favorite for fishing in the style of Stream Trout. Many readers, perhaps even surprised to see this lure in the first place. But each angler has their own scale of values, is partly subjective. Ryuki 45S — bait, which I mastered trout fishing in the strong currents of the mountain rivers. And this lure also has any athlete participating in the world Cup or the prestigious tournament Trout Union Cup (Cup Trout Union). Among its many advantages — stability to different forces. The lure is very responsive to different ways of dash animation, whether it’s a strong jerking with minimal stops or no or low-intensity jerks with long pauses. No less productive and wiring Ryuki for demolition, where a strong current does all the work by yourself. Wobbler is excellent in terms of range and, more importantly, precision casting. Working steadily when fishing upstream (up stream, that is, by casting upstream). Ryuki 45S sinking fast refers to that strong current is a very important and useful quality. There is another pronounced negative buoyancy: this lure can be sh in different horizons in the search of active fish.
- 5. Pontoon21 Trait #00
Another representative of spinners family Trait. Unlike the leader of my rating TB Trait #0, this model has a light weight core consisting of steel balls. The blade of this “spinner” is working steadily at different speeds and different wiring of the power flow. Without it, none of my fishing when fishing small predator in terms of flow, be it forest, mountain or fishing in the narrowing of the steppe rivers where there is current. There Trait #00 just need. Equally outstanding results and demonstrates the lure when fishing on reservoirs without currents. Trait #00 owned unofficial record — 17 Golovlyov from one of the shallows of the river. In sport fishing, it is used in shallow areas or shoals. Trait #00 is one of the leaders when fishing for small fish, the size of which sometimes exceeds 10 cm In periods of bad bite is often the only way to “intractable” fish — Trait #00. In the taiga rivers that rotating the spinner did not miss a single grayling and lenok.
- 6. IMA Issen 45S
Wobbler can without exaggeration be called a masterpiece of the company IMA. Bright game, and this lure never goes unnoticed. Its structural feature is quite large relative to the body of the lure blade. This ratio Wobbler makes a tremendous underwater somersaults. Issen 45S — one of the few crankbaits that originally comes in equipment that meets all the requirements of sport fishing. A distinctive feature of the design is the use of vertluzhnoj mounted in the body of the lure, instead of the usual brackets, which eliminates the fulcrum hooks and minimizes the number of retirements of fish. Issen has shown itself perfectly when fishing up stream. However, he, unlike its competitors, does not lose the beautiful gameplay. Style transactions — twitching, not less productive and fishing for demolition. If the fish is determined to chase actively running lures, Issen will definitely be in the lead for catch. Finally, it is worth noting that the Wobbler has perfectly proved and when fishing for pond trout.
- 7. IMA Sukari 50SS
Classic stronomy Wobbler, like his brothers, in the style of flat (flat). It works great on the stream of any strength, sensitively responds to the jerk animation. Marking SS (Super Sinking) means “sinking badly”. With its dimensions of 50 mm lure has a weight of 5 g. This quality is very useful for fishing in deep water. When trout fishing on the river Bzyb (Abkhazia) Sukari 50SS became the leader. The river was full of fairly deep holes and stretches that perfectly fit the parameters of the lure and, of course, affected the result.
- 8. Pontoon21 Synchrony TB #1.0
This spinner has a classic petal, whose form is often called french type (French type). The angle of its opening is about 60 degrees relative to the axis. This, in turn, makes the bait much poristoi when you post, which limits its application. From Synchrony TB #1.0 is a narrow specialization — shallow areas with moderate flow. Being equipped with heavy tungsten core (the weight of the spinner is a little less than 5 g), it easily passes at a depth of about 15 cm. the Reason is the above-mentioned wide opening petal. On each river there are many places with shallow stretches. And they can be placed on the opposite side of the river, where without much effort you can throw the lure with a decent weight with great aerodynamics, that is, Synchrony TB #1.0.
- 9. Pontoon21 GagaGoon 45MR
The catch phrase of the designers: “Every invention must wait for his time” in this bait embodied in precision. Anyway, recently this GagaGoon’a in my main box trout lures was not. To be honest, this lure was “discovered” not me. But it was with his help I quickly learned how to catch trout. No, GagaGoon 45MR I was, and I caught him well enough. But finally believed him after what happened at the last stage of the Cup of Federation of fishing sport of the Krasnodar territory. Describe the situation: after standing in about half an hour and caught one trout, I released the sector, it is the other athlete and catches-where, I guess, has no chance — two fish in a row on GagaGoon 45MR! This instructive example, I remember after the contest tested all in practice. I found the reason for the success of the opponent: posting slow jerks small force. The behavior of the crank to describe a very difficult, but it is the way of the animation revealed until that moment hidden from me the potential GagaGoon 45MR.
- 10. DUO Ryuki 50S
Spearhead Ryuki 50S, like his younger brother Ryuki 45S, it has a stable game and a strong current, and in his absence. For this crank fit in a more relaxed and sprawling leaps, in which Ryuki 50S stately dances. But the power jerks should be much more powerful than Ryuki 45S. The weight of the crank — 4.5 g, which facilitates the wiring in the deeper horizon, and in addition, because of the larger than Ryuki 45S, weight and increases the range of accurate casting.
