      Thanks Bryan. I kinda refuse to use countdowns, because my buddy uses them. But maybe I will try when I go by myself.
    8. Nice fatty Chad!πŸ‘πŸŽ£ The #5 & #7 Countdown in the Hot Mustard Muddler Pattern is one of my best producers! Walmart usually carries them!

    1. ok, thanks
    2. Chad Jaco 0
      Yes Lawrence, I was at the mouth of Crooked creek. It was windy but worth it. I fished Elk also but I didn't go to close to the mouth of it because of too many ...more people.
    3. Hi Chad, were you at the wall or the mouth of one of the creeks? Most of the Chromers i have caught in years past have been on the drift with eggs or streamers. ...more Hope to get up to the tribs in November!!

  8. Trolling in deep water in the evening when this fatty hit my lure!

    Rainbow Trout with a Shad Rap

    1. Bryan Harper 0
      Probably ate a few Crawdads! I catch a lot of trout and bass here in Colorado on Crawdad colored lures! I have caught a really nice Smallie and Largemouth both on ...more a 1/2 oz Strike King Premier Spinnerbait W/W blade(s)Red Craw Color! Look at the color of your crankbait(?) If you look at my Dynamic Lures that I posted the top one I catch Trout on is the Fire Craw. We have several good Trout Lakes and decent bass lakes with decent sized crawdads in them!
    2. Tim Bingham 0
      Shouldn't be full of eggs, browns spawn in the fall not rainbows!!! But there is honestly no telling these days!!! Browns mix with Brooke's hence we get ...more the tiger trout!!! But full of eggs it may be!!! Correct me if I'm wrong but don't steelhead spawn in cold weather also or they simply make their way to the spawning grounds during winter!!! But if I am incorrect on any of this information please let me know!!!
    3. Full of eggs
    4. Chad Jaco 0
      Not sure Noah

      Chad, is that trouts belly splitting from being too fat or possibly something tried eating it prior to it indulging itself!!!

  9. Catching some nice trout casting in deep water.

    Rainbow Trout with a Shad Rap

    1. Tim Bingham 0
      The Browns do since they spawn in mid to late fall!!! November timeframe here!!!
    2. Bryan Harper 0
      That sounds like me Chad! I don’t hunt anymore and pretty much catch Browns & Bows during fall and winter!
    3. Chad Jaco 0
      Same here. I don't hunt anymore, so I fish the creeks during hunting season . It seems like the bigger browns hit in the winter here.
    4. Tim Bingham 0
      Here in NC the water temp does get down there but the majority of the winter is not that bad to deal with so those trout are basic happy campers!!! Not to mention ...more the fishing pressure is light!!! So it's game on for this guy!!! Especially when it snows I head to the streams!!!
    5. Chad Jaco 0
      Thanks Tim!!! No need to change when you are doing that good!!
    6. Tim Bingham 0
      That is a nice trout!!! As far as lures go, I know the feeling!!! I have spent a a few hundred this year on lures and yet I still basically use the same ones over ...more and over!!! Worm, plopper, frog, and my favorite a pearl super fluke!!! Now as for trout!!! I won't use anything else but a purple haze wet fly in sizes 20-26 I tie myself from late fall to mid spring!!! When you catch 15+ trout an outing it's hard to change with some being 3+ pounds!!!
    7. Jimbo Harwood 0
      lol no problem bud
    8. Chad Jaco 0
      True that !!!! Thanks Jimbo !!!!
    9. Jimbo Harwood 0
      Its just we get into a rhythm and a pattern, and it really does make it hard for change up.. when you know them other lures work.. Theres just not enough time ...more in the day or night when im fishing to go and use some random lures.. lol
    10. Jimbo Harwood 0
      SORRY CHAD! Forgot to tell ya Great Fish!!
    11. Chad Jaco 0
      I guess we are all the same Jimbo
    12. Jimbo Harwood 0
      Lmao.. i do the samething with walleyes .. same 5 lures.. out of 6 boxes.. lol
    13. Jimbo Harwood 0
      What!! i that looks fun.. we dont get to just catch trout like that around here.. unless we fish a trout pond.. lol
    14. Bryan Harper 0
      Join the crowd! I have lots of bass lures and probably use 5 different lures on a regular basis.Trout,I’m pretty stubborn using only four which costs me numbers ...more sometimes!
    15. Chad Jaco 0
      Thanks Bryan, I might have to try that pattern sometime! I have tons of lures but always end up using the same ones. I guess I'm afraid of change.
    16. Bryan Harper 0
      Nice work Chad! I sometimes catch them on a 5 cm (2”) Berkley Flicker Shad in Purple Tiger pattern
