It is not possible to advise one as to which bait is the best one to use for a particular fish. There are many hundreds of different types of bait available on the market and all of them are guaranteed to catch a fish at some point or the other. However, experience is the best teacher and anglers learn quickly which bait lures which fish at what time of the ear or day. Most lure weigh from a ¼ of an ounce to over 3 ounces. The most popular weight being the 5/8 ounce lure while the average requirement turns out to be 1/ 2 to 3 quarters of an ounce. People prefer to cut the bait into chunks to attract the fish with the natural flavor and odor while some anglers prefer to use whole bait for some odd reason.
Once you already have knowledge about trout and the different fishing methods, the next thing that you should learn are the different techniques and strategies used in catching the fish. Often, professional anglers and fishermen do not share their techniques or secrets. So, in order to create a formula of your own, you may try doing some trial and error method. Meaning, you can try having several examples of lures, hooks, and baits and try using each of them and find out which of them can give you the most number of bites or catch. To make things easier, here are some tips that you might want to know with regards to which trout fishing bait works best.
Trout fish eat a variety of food throughout the year. This is simply because some of their naturally occurring prey may not be available throughout the year and as result, they make do with what is available. Luckily, and as is normally the case in all food chains, they will have food throughout the year. If you use bait that is not what they are currently feeding on, chances are that it may be ignored. There are anglers that also employ rough techniques when casting and as a result, the bait may appear unnatural to the fish. It is best to use the best techniques with whatever bait that one is using. Note that trout fish have a great vision and are quite intelligent.
Live trout fishing bait: Night crawlers are highly popular live bait, as they are available easily and have the correct weight for that perfect long cast. Water worms/insect larva and Hellgrammites are two more live bait options to choose from. One thing to note here is that these can get slightly hard to come by, as the summer advances. They can also be hard to work with, while casting longer distances. When the trout are sluggish e.g. during and immediately after the breeding season, you can make use of small minnows. If you are an experienced trout fisherman, you can even use a chunk of sucker meat to catch large sized trout.
