Match the baitfish for success.

Posted on June 13th, 2019

Emarld Shiners are common throughout the Great Lakes and even in some inland lakes. They are one of the most important forage base for many cold-water and warm-water gamefish. At different time of the year these baitfish can feed suspended in the water column or they can be feeding near the bottom in deeper water. Being able to match the size and shape of these baitfish and fishing your lure at the right depth is the key to consistent success.

Early in the year when the waters are cold, Emerald Shiners will usually stick close to the bottom as deep as 30′. That’s the time to fish a 4″ swim-bait that matches the length and shape of these baitfish. My go-to for this time of year is non-other than the Lunker City Fin-S Fish fished on a 1/4 or 3/8 oz. jighead. This swim bait has deadly side to side action and flash and fools gamefish easy.

Later on in the summer when the Emerald Shiners start to suspend I either troll or twitch the Rapala Rip Stop in size 9. If you’ve fished the Rip Stop you know that it has amazing flash when twitched and very realistic “wounded baitfish” wobble when retrieved or trolled. Both these lures work extremely well if you fish them for predator fish especially if there are Emerald Shiners around.

Ultralight gear, stream Rainbows.

Posted on June 12th, 2019

My first love growing up was stream fishing for resident trout. You know, fighting mosquitoes, brush and poison ivy to find a secluded pool or run that held that prized 8-12″ trout. It wan’t about the size, it was about the environment those trout live in and the adventure and that has not changed over 50 yrs. later.

Our good friend Puneet Saini who fishes small Greater Himalayan streams has been catching a mix of resident brown and rainbow trout. The chunky fish above smashed a Rapala and during the fight broke the lip off.

Above is the pool where he caught his biggest rainbow. Resident rainbows love to feed in fast water runs and pools. Many anglers pass by some of the faster runs because they think they’re too fast, but could be missing out on hooking some nice Rainbows.

My top two lures for resident Rainbows are the Rapala  Countdown in sizes 3 & 4 (CD3 & CD4), especially in the Rainbow, Brook or Italian Minnow color.

And, the Vibrax #1 spinner in gold or silver.

Puneet loves to use the smaller Rapala Scatter Raps.

I fish both lures casting across a likely spot or a little upstream and make sure both lures are at the right depth swimming across and with the current as I work them over potential trout holding areas.
