Hi Dako, most resident brown are less than 5 lb. in size which means using smaller lures to entice them. My best artificials are either small Vibax spinners in the #1 – #2 size, the Rapala Countdown in sizes #3 & #4, and my last choice is small 1/8 oz spoons that are about 1″ long. I find the spinner and small wobbling lures work best especially when I’m fishing streams and I need to get the lures working fast while swimming through deeper pools, rapids and close to undercut banks, log jams and submerged tree roots….God bless you.
