Your targeting winter steelhead?

Well when steelhead get into spawning mode, they become real aggresive. They will fight off anything that comes in their area. Think impact baits. Pink worms, spoons, spinners, plugs. Other things will still work, but impact baits can knock em dead.

I bet he goes out & practices that technique at the pond evey nite. he probably sneeks out late at night after his wife has gone to bed so no one will get wind of his secret.

This ol bull in the china shop couldnt sneak up on anything I rely strictly on long casts . LOL I must admit though I have been known to haunt the pond way after dark.

it depends on where your fishing, theres things that always work and things that work every once in a while... for spring i feel like i need to use what i want to use and figure them out, its not so much as what theyre biting as much as if you can figure them out and put it in their face at the right time. i try to think about where they are gonna be when they are gonna be there and why i need to concentrate on this area.

Back in my LM days I would use salamanders tossed right up in the willows worked great.

I like to search with lipless cranks. When I find some and they quit hitting that I switch to plastics and try to get the shy ones with those.
