Jig fishing is a good technique to add to your spin aresenal. Widely popular on the White River for low water, and this is basically how I fish streamers on spin gear.

Ive never fished jerkbaits from the shore, but they work from a boat. Ive also had good luck just steady reeling them like a crankbait.

Default spinning for trout

I target large fish. My waterways are typically bigger with lots of debris in the water. This type of fishing you need a stout line/rod/reel. I use 8 pound power pro on a medium action 6'6" fenwick with a 2500 shimano stradic reel.

I am a Panther Martin guy. Size 9s.

I need the stout line and rod to get the fish's head up right away. My rig is so sensitive I can feel the blade quit spinning.

I fish the large streams in Wisconsin's driftless area and have for 55 years.

I am typically panther man but will throw a stick bait but not often.

single hooked spinners come through the water wrong. The treble acts as a rudder.

As a rule of thumb, anything you'd throw at river bass will catch brown trout with fair consistency.

rooster tails have too small of trebles for big browns and often have blades quit spinning.

panther martin has a problem with blade flop overs and mono can get marred and launch lures.

I use mepps on big lake browns with good success.

power pro eliminates line twist.
