I was able to get out and finally do some fishing! Took a trip to Wyoming and caught lots of browns and brookies that were healthy fat fish! I used Trout Attack lures and found a technique that knocked them dead. I used the heavy jig head and fished in 8-12 feet of water off the boat. I let the jig hit bottom and then my my retrieve was on! I used a reel and stop technique. I used this technique from shore before and it was starting to grow on me. So I reel 3-5 reels and then stop, each time giving slack to let the lure fall straight back to the bottom. Let it sit a second and do it again. Man did this work. They would always pick it up off the bottom and I could see them take the slack. It was definitely the pattern of the day. White seemed to be the color they wanted. I also think the Craw scent I put on helped them to hold on as I never lost a fish that day.

Fishforfreedom.... Don't get bent out of shape if you're too lazy to do the legwork. No one wants people like you flocking to their honey hole and inevitably destroying it. Repect their decision to even grace your eyes with their achievements that THEY worked hard to obtain. Sounds like your wife understands nothing about hard work.
Funny... Want to be protective of the spot but yet the overwelming need for attention and thata boys gets it blasted on the internet. Dont be upset that ppl want to know, you ask for it when you post beautiful fish pics like that on the net. Posting it and not sharing things like what lake ect only makes ppl want to know that much more. You did give great detail on the techniques you used, ill give you that. To me thats more important than location, but to most nothing is ever enough.
SLEAZY E OR SHOULD I SAY ASSHO LE I AM WRITTING UNDER ANOTHER POST FROM WORK . I AM REPLYING FOR FISHINGFORFREEDOM.I WAS ASKING THE PERSON POSTING .I DID NOT ASK FOR YOUR 2 BIT INFORMATION .FOR YOU HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER''.IF HE DONT WANT TOTELL ME THATS FINE .YOU DO NOT KNOW ME' ANY WHO KNOWS ME. KNOWS I AM FAR FROM LAZY OR SLEAZY. JUST ASKING FOR INFO .USED TOO LIVE IN RAWLINS SENSE THIS A FISHING FORUM.
I must add that its a 2 way street. Posters shouldnt be bothered by requests for more detail, At the same time, you shouldnt be bothered when you dont recieve the exact answers you are looking for. Nobody is obligated to tell you anything.
That being said, i cant stand the pure bragging posts that frequent here.( and pmuch everywhere else) If its that important to you keep it on the down low then you shouldnt post it in public imo. There are more and more ppl nowadays that seem to put their priority to bragging and baiting ppl on the web than sharing info on this activity that so many of us love. Its sad really but is what it is.
I dont view this post as one of those, the OP gave alot of detail that may help some folks on their next outting. He just didnt reveal the specific location which prolly isnt really that important in the long run.

From my experience, the colder the water gets the better the Trout Attack works. I don't know if it is the frequency that the tail gives off or the profile or a combination of the two. It is one of my go to baits this time of year. It even works well under the ice.
A little searching on the internet may help one locate Brookie fishing spots in WY. I have no idea if this location is the one being talked about above or not. Looking at the pictures there seems to be a similarity. Searching like this is part of the leg-work people talk about. You can also go to the FxR Wyoming web page and find a list of Brook Trout lakes in WY.
Nice pics, bet that was a nice outing. Dont give up the spot if you dont want. I did once and although it was probably a combo of other people as well, my local pond is now drained of nice bass. Lucky to get a 10 incher now.
There are other swimbaits like the keitech. However, we tried it and the profile is more for bass I think. In my experience, trout seem to like more of a slender profile. Plus I think the keitech has too big of a paddle tail. The slender profile and small paddle tail made the difference. They seemed to have no problem grabbing ahold of it. I think the fish think its a small crayfish or minnow that hugs the bottom. All I know is that I am so excited about the technique, that I cant wait to try it again!
