What is the best method to fish for fishing for Steel Head Trout? We like to fish Michigan Piers and Lake Huron Marinas . xvpmrzPosted on October 7th, 2016
Hi Gary, you have two options. First is to cast artificials like 1/2-3/8 oz wobbling casting spoons, the Lil’Cleo is one of the most popular spoons. A Vibrax #3 spinner also works well and the Luhr Jensen KwikFish in sizes #5 & #7.
The second option is to fish roe bags either under a float, or on a sliding sinker rig (Carolina rig), on the bottom. If you use the sliding-sinker rig, steelheaders often add a small piece of foam in their roe bag so that it suspends off the bottom.
