Spoons for trout

I have a bunch in my box but I’ve never used them. I tend to gravitate towards spinners primarily and occasionally Rapalas. What’s everyone’s thoughts about them? Do you find there’s a certain season that’s better suited for them? What are your preferred methods to fish spoons? I think I have the basic colors covered, gold, silver, and silver/blue. I read the red/white are productive as well. I have them in 2 sizes for small and large streams/turbulent water conditions.

Back when I really fished a lot for trout I used to use a small red and white dare devil spoon. The trout really attacked it.

That’s what I keep reading Woods. Did you notice any correlation with using that specific color combo and seasons?

I've always done good with the niti-ones. I have good luck with those for trout and anything else for that matter. Silver and gold are always the go to's. I also use a quick switch loop on my line to switch between spinners and spoons depending on water conditions. I once read (don't remember where) but it stated that fish see blues better in the morning because the light hitting the water at that time of day. I tried it on steel head and it seemed to be effective for the most part. And the only color that works the majority of the time for me in murky water is black and bigger is better during low vis situations. For me anyways! GL

Jason, no I didn't notice any difference, I also occasionally used a Mepps black fury spinner with success.

I have a friend who does well with the Kastmaster and the Niti-1. Although I have both of them and some Daredevil, I hardly ever use them. I always use Franks spinners, rapalas, or Panther Martins. If I can't get it done with those, it ain't gonna happen.

Try a Hofmann's. They are made in PA and have been around since 1952.

Same as in I pretty much stick to spinners due to my confidence with them and seldomly use Rapalas. I’m looking to kind of branch out in my techniques and gain some familiarity with using spoons. I’ll try some my next time out.

Red/White dare devils are one of my favorite trout lures especially in lakes you can cast them a mile
