Jerkbait Dominated Trout

Post By: bharper      Posted: 11/15/2019 9:16:50 PM     Points: 208    
Good day of fishing the River with my friend Chet!I ended up catching 28 Trout all on a Fire Craw Dynamic J-Spec and Chet caught all of his 30 Browns on a Brown Trout Rapala Countdown. My last fish of the day was my biggest fish a decent 25 Lake Trout in strong current! I mostly caught decent Browns in the 16-18 1/2 range.

that's a myth! We all KNOW trout don't like jerk baits. Especially browns.

Well done

I didnt know you could catch a laker in the canyon! Nicely done,
Congrats. (You both sure have them critters dialed in). Ski

Jim- Lol,Thx! I love a downtown Brown slamming a Jerkbait in the strong current!

Ski- I had an approximate 7+ lb pull off 10 ft out from shore last year then I caught a skinny 24 + Laker! Ive hooked and seen four but only caught two in about 20 outings! I talked to a WS local and hes had a 32+ Laker that he fought for quite a while bust off real close shore! I can imagine what it would be like to hook a 10+ lb Laker in the River current! Lakers are only in Morrow Point and Crystal Res! Nothing from Portal down to Pleasure!

Riper69- Thx! Definitely! Im hoping to hook a 10+lber but I know Id better be on my toes! I had to maneuver my way along down the rocky shoreline on this smaller one because of the strong current! 🤙
