I'm trying to get some info on catching trout in a put and take situation. For years I have got the MD freshwater license to shad fish Deer Creek but this year also bought the trout stamp. Just wondering what lures, bait and tactics everybody uses?
Not interested in locations, but I've never really tried for trout before.
Thanks, Lance.

For your put and take trout try small in-line spinners like Mepps etc or a small Rapala type lure. As far as bait goes , all the processed trout baits should do okay early in the season. As the season progresses, I'd switch to worms. For presentation, use just enough weight that you can feel your rig bouncing on the bottom occasionally and dead drift it. Good luck!

if u r fishing from shore, get about a 1/2 ounce weight and tie it on. Then at the bottom of ur string u want to find the smallest hook possible. Tie it on and use powerbait. I use the chartruse and it works excellent 4 me. Good luck and always tighten up on ur rod so u can see the fish hit it.
