In the 40 years I've been fishing for trout, I've caught more trout while trolling small to medium size lakes with these than any other lure.

Luhr Jensen calls them a Kwikfish

Yakima Bait Co. call them a flatfish.

Favorite color around here as well. 100 degrees here it would be tied to leaded line

The lake I fish (cocolalla] allegedly has both rainbow and large Browns.  Any change in strategy to target browns?

That lake is a gold mine of fish

I have been picking up some nice small and largemouth but just starting to think about the trout.

I can be on the lake with a wet line 15 min after leaving my driveway so I figure I better learn how to fish it!

I fish spoons, Little Cleo's etc in Orange or Frog colors for trolling. For casting same patterns in Castmasters. This is for Eastern lakes, mountains etc. Western Wa can't beat a pink wedding ring tipped with a 1 inch worm.

Trout color joined Rapala works great but I catch almost a 50/50 mix bag still with my pop gear and double wammy setup with a big night crawler.
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.
