3 VT Fishing Guide Techniques To Catch More Trout

There is a wealth of knowledge in books, magazines and online today on how to fish for trout, etc.. Most of this information is overwhelming to a beginner fishermen. I thought it would be a good idea as a VT Fishing Guide to break down three simple ways to catch more trout that anyone can use. 

VT Fishing Guide

 

1. Inline Spinners

VT Fishing GuideHave you ever wondered what is the favorite food of trout? Small baitfish is a huge part of a trout’s diet. This type of bait becomes even more important as the trout get larger. That is why inline spinners work so well. They are one of the all-time bait imitators that drive trout crazy. Inline spinners are easy to cast and for the most part, don’t get snagged up in the weeds. One that we like is Worden’s Rooster Tail

 

 

2. Streamers & Nymphs

VT Fishing Guide Trout NymphsMany fly fishermen get caught in the myth that a dry fly is the best bait to catch trout, that isn’t true. If you only fish with dry fly’s then you are going to end up fishing more and catching less. Streamers and nymphs and many other sub-surface foods actually make up most of the trout’s diet. Scuds, Woolly buggers, Soft Plastic Nymphs are all excellent for catching trout. Mix it up a little, don’t just rely on dry fly’s altogether. 

 

 

 

 

3. Live Bait

3 VT Fishing Guide Techniques To Catch More Trout 1Live bait is the traditional bait used by fishermen for generations. Trout go crazy for live bait. Presenting worms, night crawlers, minnows or even crawfish will cause them to strike hard. This is the choice bait for beginner fishermen. When you setup your line, use a simple split-shot rig with a minnow or nightcrawler. This most often will do the trick in helping you catch some trout.

Keith really runs a terrific private ice fishing excursion!! From the start, Keith was extremely responsive, organized and full of knowledge and excitement over our family’s desire to try ice fishing for the first time. Keith was thorough in his planning with us so that we were prepared and comfortable with our plans. The day was amazing—-Keith is an expert fisherman, and he so was patient with all of us non fishermen/women. We learned so much and really had the time of our lives with Keith! We will definitely do another excursion with Keith soon, and highly recommend him!

We had a blast fishing with Keith last week. He put us on nonstop action on a hot day, which is not easy. The lake was beautiful and fun to jump in as well. My nine-year-old daughter does not have a ton of fishing experience, but he was able to get her working the retrieves perfectly, and she ended up out fishing me by a long shot! We got largemouth, smallmouth, rock bass, Pickerel, Perch, and sunfish. Keith is great with kids, and a lot of fun to hang out with for grown-ups. His boat and equipment are top notch as well. I would recommend this guy to anyone, And we are looking forward to our next trip which might be some ice fishing.
