What size hooks do you use for trout? I have some small ones that I use fireballs on. So far no luck.
What other baits or lures do you recommend for trout?
My personal prefernce is for lures, I've found 1/4 oz castmasters and spoons to work best. In the castmasters I like brass, brass/green, brass/blue and brass red. In spoons, silver/red, silver/blue, silver/green and all silver. I replace the treble hooks that come with the lures with a single hook that has about the same spread as the treble.
When I am using fireballs, I use a #12 treble hook. However, that is only when I plan to eat what I catch. Not "hook and release" friendly.
