It all depends on how far you want to cast, and how deep you want to fish...no matter what type of spinner you are using.

What troutdude said. Plus it's amazing how small of a trout you will still catch with a 1/4" lure... 3" trout can still wrap their jaws around that treble hook!

I also forgot to mention the cardinal rule of spinner fishing. If you don't lose a few on each trip, then you aren't fishing them correctly.

In other words, the slower the spin, the deadlier the effect. You will be down where the fish are, but you will also snag your hooks from time to time and lose the spinner. So, carry plenty of spinners is the motto; at least if you want to catch a lot more fish!

One size larger than you think...these lures are great right out of the box. I perfer the Salmon Fly color in 1/4 oz. but this is my opinion. There are ton of lures that work, the only thing like was said before...go slow and deep to catch fish.
This is why most spinner anglers build there own...34 cents per unit is easyer to stomach than 1.99 each;)

Tight lines.
