If you want to catch trout more consistently then it’s time you got serious with your bait selection. Here’s 5 great trout fishing baits to consider for your next trout fishing trip…
1. REBEL WEE-CRAW
Designed to imitate a crawfish scooting across the bottom, this 2-inch-long crankbait reaches 5-7 feet. Formed with a tucked-under tail by the bill and bulging claws facing the aft treble, the Wee Craw (and its Teeny version) give the appearance of a fleeing crustacean.

2. BERKLEY GULP! TROUT WORM
When the fish need a finesse presentation, Berkley’s buoyant worm does the trick. Packed with the all-natural Gulp! scent attractant, the Trout Worm suspends off the bottom when fitted with a light wire hook. A good choice for float rigs, three-way rigs, or scaled-down dropshots.

3. LINDY FUZZ-E GRUB
Trout like this grub’s soft-plastic body with its slick, life-like appearance and tantalizing marabou tail enhances the display. This, along with a two-color painted eye on the jig head prompts aggressive strikes and entices the fish to eat the whole bait, then hold on longer for greater hook sets.

4. SMITHWICK RATTLIN’ ROGUE
A good choice for larger trout, the Rogue offers lots of flash and erratic action, along with the ability to sit motionless—a common strike-triggering tactic. The bait’s nearly neutral buoyancy enables it to hold its position when paused and then dart away with the next twitch. Equipped with internal noisemakers, this Rogue is a good choice for cold or clear water.

5. REBEL TRACDOWN MINNOW
The sinking version of the original Rebel Minnow, the Tracdown enables you to reach trout holding lower in the water column. Made for moving water, the bait’s straight tracking facilitates targeted presentations.
