Winter Trout Bite On Artificals
The usage of soft plastics is key around this time of year. As the surface temperature drops trout swim deeper and soft plastics are key to getting in that strike zone. I prefer gulp baits rather than traditional grubs. In my opinion the trout will actually hold on longer and even try to swallow the bait before you even know they are hooked. The key to finding the big ones this time of year is deep creeks, holes, and water clarity. Trout are usually in the same spots as summertime just deeper. These deep holes and creeks hold heat. You honestly can warm up your hands with a trout caught deep this time of year. A 1/4 oz jig head with a 2'15lb fluorocarbon leader provides perfect flutter action.
