Fishing Tips And Tricks-Part 7-Spook And Ice

Updated on May 7, 2011

Fishing Tips And Tricks-Be A Spook

There are some fishing tips and tricks that work very well for trout fishing and one of my favorites is spook fishing.  So now you are asking what the hell is spook fishing?

Slowly you walk down the middle of a creek and you will spook any pooling trout into the undercut sides of the river or creek.  They will then sit in there and enjoy the privacy and shade.  Now the fun part comes.

Now you want to cast a wet fly or a small spinner bait into the undercuts of the river bank.  At this point you want to be back on the shore.  Walking down the river will just keep the fish spooked.

Fishing Tips And Tricks-Spring Streams

The biggest fishing tips and tricks you need to understand when it comes to trout spring stream fishing is it isn't easy.  So if you are expecting large numbers then you better think again.  The thing is if you can catch a few spring ones then you know you have beat the challenge and in all shapes and forms that has to feel good.

For the most part and in most places spin fishing is illegal when it comes to spring trout fishing.  So now you are going to need to focus on fly fishing.  The thing is in the early spring there aren't a lot of bug hatches yet so you are going to need to know what they are feeding on below the surface and mimic that.
Light tackle is what you are going to need in order to provide the light presentations that are needed.

The biggest thing when spring trout river fishing is experimenting.  You will make a lot of mistakes before figuring out what works.  This goes for everything from the bait you are presenting to the stance you are taking for setting the hook.

Fishing Tips And Tricks-Winter Trout

Ice fishing for trout can lead to some of the best or worst fishing you will ever experience.  My experiences has me fishing less and less for trout in the winter time.  Now that doesn't mean I don't do it or I doesn't mean I don't know a few trout fishing tips and tricks.

You want to start by drilling about 10 holes about 10 feet away from each other.  You also want to be in water from 8 to 40 feet deep.

The first hole you drill should be very close to the shore.  This isn't to catch fish but rather to see what the trout might be feeding on.  The bait that's down there will come up with the water after drilling the hole.  Once that is done you will have an idea of what bait needs to be mimicked.  In many areas you can also use the exact bait you bring in with the auger.

Finally all you can do now is keep trying the holes you have dug.  Fish anywhere from right on the bottom to a foot off the bottom.  Be warned though.  If you strike on a day they are hitting you will have an experience of a life time.

Fishing Tips And Tricks-The Biggest Secret

      Trout is actually one of my favorite fish as long as it is caught in running water and not still water. Still water trout has the tendancy to taste muddy. But catching them are still a lot of fun.
