Since I last asked maybe abut 2 or 3 years ago I have been using the Trout Magnets and the Crappie Magnets for trout.. I have caught quite a few on the magnets now.. Sometimes when they don't hit I will cut the tail off and just use the grub body.. I actually have used other rubber bodies with them and have used other jigs with the Trout and or Crappie magnet bodies and they work too.. I have had a couple of the jig head hooks break off when I have caught the trout straight on the top of the mouth. This I when I'm removing the hook.. All and All I do like them big time..In streams I do use the Trout Magnets with and without bobbers.. It all depends how I want to work the pool..
