Great trout Svirac, I do envy you on such a great capture. droolsmilie

Your chosen lure colour is my favourite Rapala CD5 Minnow colour for use in the Goulburn River and other Vic waterways. thumbsupsmilie

It's a pity that the colour is so rare on the shelves these days. Last Tuesday and Wednesday I caught a few decent rainbows and a decent brown using the Rapala CD5 in the silver fluorescent chartreuse colour (SFC). Natural colours failed to attract in the stained overcast waters due to recent rains.

Hey Wrapper, if you are heading out to the Vic Rivers, the Goulburn River downstream of Molesworth was as thick as pea soup. I am unsure what river you are fishing, but be prepared to fish bright fluoro colours like the colour mentioned above, or a fire tiger colouring if it's dirty.

Take a mixture of natural colour and fluoro colour minnow patterns, preferably no longer than 5 centimetres. I swear by Rapala 3cm and 5cm minnows, as they always work for me, so why change what works. Natural colourings can be used in the clear water high up in the mountain streams.

Yo Zuri Pinns Minnows are also a favourite for ultra light presentations, and Rebel 6cm jointed minnows are great too, as they are the only trout lure over 5cm that I may use in the rivers.

If the water is like pea soup, take some bait as backup, but don't be turned off lure casting, as you will discover that the shallow running gravel beds will still have some lure visibility (unlike the muddy long slow pools).

Also you can never go wrong with Celta, or Jensen insect type lures, the only downfall being the dreaded line twist, that's even with a keel on the line above.

Forgot to mention that Garlic scent is extremely helpful when smeared on your lures. You may stink like garlic bread afterwards, but at least you will have a higher chance of getting a fish.

Wish you the best

Robin

Thanks Dave, but I reckon you could use my rainbow as live bait for the trout that Svirac and yourself have been catching. thumbsupsmilie
