for a solid trout setup and bank location for Huddleston Pond. I like fishing there, however, I have NEVER had any action and would love to catch some of those big boys that I always see jumping. Any help would be much appreciated!!!

Ive never fished there but last year I was using a pink power egg slid above the shank of the hook and then put a small piece of worm on the hook. Fish this under a bobber 1-3 ft. Or I fish 2 pink powereggs slid above the hook, make sure powereggs are floating off of the bottom. I rig this with a small egg sinker and about 2 feet of leader. Im sure other colors will work also I have just had best sucess with pink. There are some other post on powereggs I would check them out.

chironomid "snow cone" fly under a clear buble float, you can add water to them for casting distance. ive caught quite a few brooders on either that fly under a bubble or a olive or black woolly bugger, and try just a nightcrawler with a simple sliding weiht snap swivel and snelled hook system pautzkies salmon eggs work really good alone or combined with the worms make sure you use size 14-16 gold trebles

You need a pole, a reel, and some line, lol.

I caught a 12lb Brood on 4lb Flouroclear which has a low diameter compared to most lines, I have also caught 2 others about 6-8lbs. It is just a matter of how well your knot holds up and how you play the fish, you could probably catch them on 2lb if you were really hardcore.

1/8oz slide sinker--Swivel------leader varies by pond depth----size 16 treble.

Fish a slack line when you can, and try to set the hook before the fish feels the resistance, they will sometimes drop it when they feel tension. I would never go higher than 6lb Maxima for leader.
