All ready for some small stream trouting...

Post by Craigthor » Thu Mar 07, 2019 4:07 pm

Almost all my spoons are here, focusing on 4.7-5.5g spoons this year. Finished changing all the hooks out to my C’ultiva S-31 series hooks. Rods and reels are spooled up, pack is setup and loaded. Just need some good weather.

Thanks guys, warmer weather coming just lots of rain this weekend which will kill the trout streams.

Can't wait to see the end results!

Hard water is rare down here but winters are usually very wet making the small streams I like to fish a chocolate milk torrent. I've caught a few small fish out of some of the overflow ponds so far but need the rain to ease up to get any meaningful stream fishing in.

Spoons look great - =D> - please share your thoughts on the lures and inform about your favourites after you get to know how they all work.

With the BFS setup I don’t see any line twist, I also use a C’ultiva 000 micro clip. Definitely had to use a micro swivel with the Spinning setup.

Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed seeing the river pics. I haven't done one thing yet to prepare for spring trout. Now, I really regret selling my Presso casting rod, for the small water.

Though my choice of rod has changed, and I’m not fishing spoons at this time I’m still hitting the water. Tons of rain the last week with more coming though I’d hit some post flood streams.

Post flooding trout, the Browns were fat and aggressive early this morning.
