The Best Bait For Trout – Catch Big Ones

Published

alt_text

If you have been fishing for any length of time, then chances are you are always on the lookout for a new challenge. Well, fishing for trout will always fit the bill, simply because they are one of the smarter breeds of fish. Of course, when it comes to angling for any type of fish, there is always the age-old debate: which is better, live bait or lures? Of course, if you have had success with the latter on other species of fish, you might be tempted to try lures with trout as well. In the case of trout, that would often be a mistake on your part.

First of all, trout have a tendency to thoroughly feel out any of their food before they totally go for it. Once they realize that there isn’t any “there” there, so to speak, they will definitely pass on your lure.

Secondly, lures are usually more expensive than live bait. Third, lures can get snagged on underwater structures such as moss, seaweed, reeds, and the like. Finally, in colder waters, the lure just simply won’t be as effective as live bait.

So, why is live bait best for catching trout? One word: smell. That’s right. Trout are very adept at using their sense of smell to find your live bait. This is why it is advantageous for you to use live bait for fishing for your trout; even in muddy waters, you have a better chance at landing a trout than you would with a lure. Keep reading to get several ideas of what live bait to use.

Of course, now that we have established that you should use live bait, you are probably what kind of live bait you should consider. Here are some options for you to take a look at: But firstly, if live bait is not an option, check out my favorite dough bait and lures for catching trout HERE on my Fishing resources page.

Worms

I usually buy worms at WalMart Sporting goods department. they have a refrigerator.

Perhaps one of the best natural bait that you can use for trout fishing would have to be worms. Nightcrawlers, reddish wigglers, garden worms – it really doesn’t matter what you call them.

Simply put, a worm to a trout is very much like putting a big, juicy steak in front of a human being. Much like some of us at our favorite steakhouse, a worm is simply too much for a trout to resist. Moreover, there are a lot of advantages to using traditional worms to catch your trout.

First of all, worms are easy to obtain. Ask any fisherman, and they will tell you that you usually only have to go to your nearest convenience store to find them. Generally, a bait worm will usually only run about $35-$40 per pound, which in all honesty is less than a dinner out for the family. Moreover, you can also buy many of these bait worms from online outlets such as eBay, Amazon, and PetsMart.

Additionally, bait worms are easy to store. If you only have a few to keep, you can simply place them in the refrigerator. You should put them in a decent box and then occasionally place some water droplets for moisture and some coffee grounds for food.

Alternately, if you have a larger amount of worms, you could put them in a box outside and they might multiply for you, which will save you money on bait in the long run.

Of course, once you place your worm on your hook, it might be wise to give it a little shake if the water is muddy. However, as mentioned before, this is really up to personal preference. Again, it isn’t necessary to do this because the fish will often smell the worm as well.

Naturally, before you get to this point you need to understand the proper placement of your bait worm. For starters, you should designate a hook from as high as number ten to as low as number six so that the fish will be able to capture the bait.

These types of hooks are designated as bait-holder hooks, meaning that they latch onto the worm as firmly as possible. Obviously, you want the worm to stay on the hook. Make sure that the worm is properly threaded on the hook with dangling ends, and you should have plenty of success with your trout fishing.

Wax Worms

Wax worms are an extremely underrated item to have in your trout bait arsenal. Unfortunately, there isn’t much literature on this type of trout bait, but that is a shame simply because there are all kinds of trout enthusiasts who swear by this bait. Why is this little insect one of the best trout enticements on the market today? There are many reasons why, but first you have to understand just what a wax worm is.

The bait supply company will usually construct the wax worm trout enticement by fashioning it through a slip-sinker rig similar to one for nightcrawlers. Then, you will need to impale about four of these wax worms on the midsection of a hook, making sure that the end parts of the wax worms continue to wiggle so as to entice the trout.

You will often want to add a miniature marshmallow to this trout confection, squishing just above the bait to make it an irresistible treat for your would-be trout catch. Additionally, the marshmallow will keep your wax worm bait afloat so that it stays off the bottom of the river.

There is no question that wax worms are starting to develop a loyal fan base among fishing hobbyists looking for the most effective trout bait. Part of the reason for this is not only because this bait is highly underrated, but because wax worm bait presents a whole host of advantages. Indeed, traditional live bait and artificial lures just cannot compete against this method. Here are some reasons why:


Just the Right Color

Wax worms have an appealing bright white color, and that makes them much easier for the trout to spot than other bait choices. Along these same lines, the wax worms are a great option for those who are fishing in muddy, murky, or swampy water because they will readily stand out against the dark mud.

A Great Anatomy

The wax worms have a unique anatomy that is composed of much more fatty tissue than regular convenience store lake worms. This means that there is an increased likelihood that a trout will bite your rod. Like other creatures, they too crave something different from time to time, so you can definitely use that to your advantage!

A Long Storage and Life Expectancy

One of the best things about wax moth larva is that they can last up to a month as long as they are properly cared for. Moreover, they do not require any type of feeding like other typical trout bait options do. You can easily help this bait reach their full potential simply by keeping them cool. This is definitely a bait that doesn’t care for the heat. Finally, you also should take particular care to wipe away any moisture they might be encountering while they are in storage.

As long as you are diligent in taking care of this type of bait, they will definitely reward you when you are on the lake. This bait is not only fantastic at helping you catch trout, but also salmon, panfish, and bluegills.

Crickets and Grasshoppers

Of course, another type of bait you could try in order to increase your trout-catching prowess would be either grasshoppers or crickets. First of all, let’s look at grasshoppers. They are a venerable treat for most trout simply because they possess a lot of protein that the fish needs in their diet. Grasshoppers are a river-dwelling land insect that will simply be irresistible to a trout. One of the best times to use a grasshopper as trout bait would have to be in late summer, simply because that is when the grasshoppers are reaching their prime growth development. Additionally, one of the best advantages to using grasshoppers as bait is that the ones you simply catch by the river are every bit as good as the ones you purchase at a bait shop.

Grasshoppers are one of the most appealing for trouts out there on the market today. If you are going to use live grasshoppers for bait, the best way to do it would be to thread it on split shot ring through a small hook and then ever-so-slightly submerge it in the river water. If you “drown” the grasshopper in this manner, you will have a much better shot at catching some prime trout. Also, don’t be afraid to experiment with different sizes of grasshoppers. Don’t be surprised if you have better success with a mid-sized grasshopper than with one of the largest ones.

Finally, grasshoppers (also called “hoppers” in fisherman lingo) is a great way to help the beginning trout sportsman. As long as you are in the right spot, fishing with a grasshopper will almost guarantee you to get a few bites from the fish.

Crickets

Of course, even without grasshoppers, crickets are a related insect that you can try as well. Crickets are good because they are attractive to trout all summer long and not just part of it like their grasshopper counterparts. Additionally, crickets have the ability to float on the water for a slightly longer period of time than grasshoppers.

Unfortunately, one of the reasons that many anglers overlook crickets would be because they can be difficult to bait on the hook. Although one of the most common ways to bait a cricket on a hook would be through piercing the skin of the cricket, this will often put a hole in the exoskeleton and paralyze the cricket. If you are going to bait your cricket this way, it is best if you have a large supply of them because they will not live long and trout respond far better to live bait.

Another way to bait a cricket on a trout hook would be to loop your cricket around the bait thread. However, you have to be very precise, otherwise, you will either crush the cricket or ultimately spook the trout too much.

Nymphs and Other Types of Larvae

Another type of live bait that is great to use would be water nymphs and any other type of aquatic larvae. This is because these types of insects are very much a staple in the trout’s diet throughout their life cycle. They love to munch on them simply because they are a necessary part of a healthy trout’s diet.

One way to catch these larvae would be to employ the use of a small mesh dip net or wire screen and hold it downstream. You should work on turning over rocks and rub your hands across the bottom of the rocks.

This will dislodge any larvae and nymphs you might find and they will be mildly swept across the current and into the net. Once you pick them off, you should quickly store them in a designated container that has some wet vegetation.

Of course, you would do well to understand the various types of larvae bait out there. First of all, there is the hellgrammite larvae; these are centipede-shaped bugs that live under the rocks found in clear streams.

Once you get ready to use them for bait, you should place your hook just under their collar just below their head, but do be aware they might try to fight back with their pincers.

Are you seriously looking turn your hobby into a business? I recommend joining Income School. I’ve been an Income School member for a little over a year and joining was the best decision I’ve made in working toward my business goal.

Caddisfly larvae

Another option would be Caddisfly larvae; this bait is often also called case worms or stick baits. These small creatures are actually very resourceful, often building a refuge of sand, pebbles, or plant fragments in order to protect their fragile worm-like body. You can often find these insects along the riverbank, and many anglers will usually remove their casing before casting it out into the water. However, hungry trout have been known to eat them even with the case attached. You should use either a 12 or 14 hook to attach them.

There are also several types of fly larvae that you should give a shot. For example, stonefly and mayfly larvae both make excellent trout bait simply because they are a fairly tough option that will last a long time on the hook. You should look for them in a cool stream environment and rest assured you collect them just as you would any other bait.

Dragonfly and Mayfly

Finally, dragonfly and mayfly bait is a solid option that you can easily find in stream backwaters. They often will make their abode in a large leaf pile or some debris. Use a dip net or seine net to collect them, making sure that you store them in a container with leaves or moss.

Fishing Willow Beach – Catch Fish Near Las Vegas

Can You Fish at Willow Beach?

Willow Beach is a long-time classic fishing destination. It’s a part of Lake Mohave on the Colorado River. The black rock canyons are just below Hoover dam and are part of Lake Mead National Park. Its Cold waters are on the north of Lake Mohave.

I’m going to share stuff here that you won’t find anywhere else.

Back in the day, they used to catch huge
rainbow trout out of that little beach. I remember when I was a kid they had a café in by where the
store is. Other Species we caught were Carp, Catfish, and Bass.

Inside the café, we used to go there to eat breakfast in the mornings before we went
fishing or we would go fishing early and come to the café after a couple of hours of fishing.
Inside the café.

The walls were lined with hundreds of pictures of anglers with their catch. These
were all rainbow trout at the time and you had to have a trout over 5 pounds to get on the wall.

There were also taxidermy trout on the walls along with other wildlife that you can find in the
area. If I remember right there was a bighorn ram mount at the front entrance.

Later on, as I grew up in the 80s and 90s the decor changed a little bit. The trout pictures were still on the wall
but the trophy at the front of the store was in a case and it changed to a striped bass.

Around this time striped bass got out of Lake Mead into the river system. They had a heyday eating up
trout.

Because of that, they grew to enormous sizes. I can’t remember exactly but I seem to
recall a striped bass in the display case that was over 60 pounds if I remember right.

This place is the iconic big fish travel destination. There have been people coming here for decades to
catch big fish whether they be trout or striped bass.

I took a 100 person survey on facebook if people like bass fishing best or trout fishing best. Here’s the results.

Can You Swim at willow beach?

There is no swimming allowed at the marina but if you go outside the buoys you can swim. You should be warned that the water is ice cold year around though.


Do I need an Arizona fishing license to fish at Willow Beach?

There is a lot of confusion unless you already know about whether you need a license to fish at
Willow Beach or not.

First of all yes you do need a license to fish at Willow Beach. However, if
you have a Nevada license that will work as well.

It doesn’t matter if you are on a boat or on
the shore as long as you have a Nevada or an Arizona license you are good to go.

Do I need a stamp for Arizona or Nevada at Willow Beach?

The answer is
no. Some time ago they did away with the stamps. Now when you buy the license it is included
with the license if you get it in Nevada or Arizona does not matter.

Do I need a trout stamp at Willow Beach?

Again the answer is no. Back in the day you
used to have to buy a trout stamp but nowadays that is included with the license as well no
matter which state you come from Arizona or Nevada.

alt Martin McElroy Echo Bay 06/17/2021 More Info

Do I need a stamp for a second pole at Willow Beach?

Once again the answer to that is no. It is
included with the license and you can have up to two poles but a maximum number of three hooks
between the two poles.

So I usually fish one pole with one hook in the other pole with two
hooks.
At the end of this article, I will give you a willow beach fishing Report for 2021


Can I catch striped bass at Willow Beach?

The answer is absolutely yes you can.

What are the
recommendations for catching striped bass?

Well you can do it similar to the way you do it in
Lake Mead- bait fishing with anchovies that are frozen.

Cut them in thirds and put them
on a standard worm hook. Use about 1 ounce of weight and toss them out there about as far as
you can get them.

If you are on a boat you can do the same thing or you can go upstream a ways and float down slowly with an anchovy on the hook slightly above the bottom.

Another
recommended way to catch striped bass is using baits that mimic baitfish. Either a lure that
mimics a shad or one that mimics a trout or even bluegill.

These are terrific to use because
the bass and the striped bass love to eat these smaller fish, especially trout.

In case you did not know trout are stocked at Willow Beach every Friday. When this happens it’s like buffet time for
the striped bass. This would be a good time to throw out a swim bait that looks like a trout.

last but not least you can use live bait which you can get from my buddy mike wigglerarmy.com

Can I catch trout at Willow Beach?

Again the answer to this is an astounding yes.

How do you catch trout at Willow Beach? I would suggest the old standby Berkeley power bait and fish
somewhere around the picnic area by the store or the fishing pier over by the hatchery.

Probably the best place to catch trout. Anywhere in between that is able to be official legally is
good as well. If you have a boat or kayak you can go up or downstream and fish The coves. The
trout like to hang out in there as well and you can catch some real big trout at Willow Beach.

Both of my sons have caught 5-pound trout there. In case you were wondering yes this was
recently it was 2020.

My son Lorin at Willow Beach – This Rainbow Trout was caught on a Berkley Mousetail

I know the best do you eat the trout but the hatchery also put out some
very large ones for the anglers to catch. You can also use lures like spinners for trout and even
jerk baits that are semi-small.

Another popular soft bait or mouse tails made by Berkley. Also,
regular old nightcrawlers are a great option. You can get them from my friend mike
wigglerarmy.com

Marshmallows are a good bait for trout as well. Some people use the garlic-flavored ones made
specifically for fishing but the little colorful marshmallows that you put in your hot cocoa do a
nice job too. (the garlic flavored ones give me bad breath)

Lastly, a super very good option is wax worms or mealworms that you can get at
the store at Willow Beach. Keep in mind Arizona time is different than Nevada time most of the
year and the store closes fairly early.

What are some Willow Beach fishing tips?

The first tip I would give you is to try to fish in the off
hours to beat the crowds.

A lot of people go down to Willow Beach If you try to go during a holiday weekend you are
going to fight for elbow room. I would say if you go in the morning during the week that would be
a terrific time.

It doesn’t matter if you are going just to kayak or if you are fishing, the middle of
the week is a good time.

Late in the evening is also a good time. Only the most diehard
fisherman are out there after about 10 PM so getting a spot is not so hard except maybe on the
weekends. They do have a very nice fishing pier at Willow Beach and it’s quite large but in the
late summer, there’s a lot of grass around the pier so it’s kind of difficult to fish.

If you are going to fish the pier in the late summer you are going to want some sort of gear that you can cast out
very far. This will get you out past the grass and give you a better chance of getting a striper.

Mouse tails and wax worms seem to do the best on trout if you can see them. Plop one of these
baits in front of them and you can usually get their attention with it especially the wax worms
and regular worms.

The best piece of advice I can give you if you want to catch trout is to go
there on Friday morning. Prepare for heavy traffic along the shore because a lot of people know
that the department of wildlife stocks Willow Beach at the ramp on Friday mornings at about eight.

Watch out for the no fishing signs. You need to stay in the designated fishing areas which are a
little ways away from the docs. If you are fishing for striped bass this is a good time too.
Because the stripers come in to eat the trout. Putting something out there that looks like a trout
is a good bet during this time.

Willow Beach trout stocking schedule 2021

All I can tell you is that they stock Willow Beach at about 8:00 AM every Friday morning. There
are occasions when that schedule is changed for example during Covid lockdowns they did not
stock for quite a long time.

There may be other reasons why they don’t stock for example if it is
a holiday. Other than that they are pretty regular about it.

The Top 5 Bass Fishing Guides for Lake Kissimmee

He lives to fish, and he enjoys taking vacationers out and sharing his expertise. The crew at Florida Bass Charter are United States Coast Guard certified. They follow all safety measures, and they are ready and willing to teach you all the techniques you need to know to catch largemouth bass in Florida. Give him a call and book your trip now. 

Florida Bass Charter Gettin-er Done

If you are looking to catch trophy bass, you need to visit Kissimmee, Florida. Kissimmee Lake is the third-largest in Florida, offering 35,000+ acres of fantastic angling and stunning scenery. Lake Kissimmee is the largest with the Kissimmee chain of lakes, located 15 miles away from Lake Wales and approximately 40 miles from Orlando, Florida. Forget the amusement parks, museums, and other attractions and book a fishing guide for a day. Go out and have an adventure. Explore the beautiful Florida waters, learn how to fish for the first time, or try to catch a huge trophy bass. 

Lake Kissimmee has slightly warmer water temperatures than some other lakes in this area. Because of this, you can see many largemouth basses. There are many anglers in this area that will fish Kissimmee during summer. With a combination of heat and warmer water temperature, you will find an abundance of largemouth bass. If you can schedule your vacation/fishing trip during the complete moon phase, you can catch bass closer to the shore.  

Fishing on Lake Kissimmee

If you are an experienced angler, a pro, or use a guide, make sure you take advantage of the thick vegetation. All the guides will know this and know where the hot spots are going to be. Kissimmee doesn’t become as crowded as some of the more transparent lakes in Florida because of the heavier vegetation. An ideal hiding place for the Bass in this area; eelgrass, bulrush, and knotgrass. These vegetation types help protect bass, allowing them to grow to Lake Kissimmee’s large sizes. 

One of many highlights for fishing on Lake Kissimmee is catching Bass between 5-8 pounds. Now and then, some anglers can wrangle in a 10+ pound largemouth bass. While out on Lake Kissimmee, keep your eye out for large sections of reed or eelgrass. This is where you can find larger schools hiding out. 

Tips for Fishing on Lake Kissimmee

Fishing on the upper area of the chain of Kissimmee lakes can be a little more challenging. This area is more acidic and has tannin-stained waters. The lower Kissimmee chain has more shallow water and is sensitive to changing weather fronts during colder months. A lot of anglers choose to wade fish. Many boat ramps and fishing camps will grant access to wade fishing. In the Florida lakes, watch out for hydrilla. Hydrilla can make navigating these waters complex, so it is recommended to use a fishing guide if you have never been on Florida’s water.

When fishing on Lake Kissimmee during spring and winter, for best results, use flipping plastic baits or a slow-trolling golden shiner. If you search for largemouth bass during the fall or summer months, your go-to lures will be plastic worms, rattling crankbaits, and jerk baits. You will want to have a good arsenal of lures and other equipment no matter what time of year you go out fishing for largemouth bass. 

Popular lures for Lake Kissimmee 

The type of lure you use will depend on the area you are planning to fish and the kind of fish you plan to catch. I am providing a shortlist below some of the most popular lures for catching Largemouth Bass in Florida, specifically Lake Kissimmee and the surrounding area. 

JerkBait

This type of bait is perfect when fishing around hydrilla or eelgrass that are abundant in Florida lakes. Using your rod tip, you need to perform a complex jerking motion to get through the thick vegetation. Using jerk baits, you want to mimic shad and shiner colors, as this is the type of prey that bass is attracted to. 

jerk bait

Speed Worm

Speed worms are the most popular and most versatile lure that you can use to catch Bass in Florida. You can use the speed worm; use it along with a heavyweight in cover, choose to worm it on the bottom of the lake, swim it back to you, or use it as a top-water lure. 

Swim Bait

This type of bit works exceptionally well around grass and lily pads on Lake Kissimmee. It is effortless to use; rig it up on a lightly weighted swimbait hook, throw it out, & reel it in slow and steady. The fish will go crazy! Make sure you are in or around some vegetation. 

Spinnerbait

With spinnerbait, you can catch trophy-sized bass. All you need to do is find an abundance of baitfish swimming around and toss in a white spinnerbait. Spinnerbait may not catch you the most fish, but it could snag you the biggest Bass of The trip if used correctly on Lake Kissimmee.

Rattletrap

This style of bait is best in the same areas and situations as your jerk bait. The thickness of vegetation will determine how you use a rattletrap; if hydrilla is thick, then you want to throw your rattletrap out and steadily reel it back in. If you are in sparse vegetation, you can do the Yo-Yo technique; bounce your line up and down. 

Lakes in The Kissimmee Chain

The lakes within the Kissimmee chain of lakes range in size from about 200 acres to 44,000 acres. The smaller lakes will, of course, have more limited fishing opportunities. I have included three of the most popular Bass Fishing lakes in the Kissimmee chain below. 

Lake Tohopekaliga

Twenty-two thousand seven hundred acres make up the most famous lake in Florida and the entire country. It is well known for producing more trophy Bass consistently than any other lake. According to Florida Wildlife Commissions’ biologist, for every 10-acres of land, there is one Bass over 10-pounds. Bassmaster Magazine has named Lake Toho “the most consistent lake for both numbers and trophy-sized bass.”

Lake Hatchineha

A top-class bass area, Lake Hatchineha offers gorgeous scenery. This lake is smaller and less known than other lakes in the Kissimmee chain. At only approximately seven thousand acres, Lake Hatchineha is a favorite spot for local anglers. The average depth is only 3-feet, and the deepest area comes in at 8-feet, making it one of the shallowest. Fishing on Lake Hatchineha is best done during the early mornings, evenings, late at night during summer, or in winter months.

Cypress Lake

At Cypress, you cannot only catch your share of largemouth bass, but you also see a variety of wildlife. Alligators, Osprey, and Eagles, among many others. All are living in their natural habitat. Cypress Lake has a record of 18-pound largemouth bass. This part of lake Kissimmee is best fished during the fall months but produces largemouth bass all year round. The locals prefer to slow-troll small jigs, which helps them locate the schools of baitfish.
