I have been reading about the lures you guys have been using at St. Joe, I am hoping to go out of Ludington on Friday. Was at Jay's in Clare today and picked up these lures.

What do you think? Will they catch anything.

Also, any pointers for the first time spring brown and steelhead fisherman?

last ludington report i read saturday said browns were in shallow and body baits were the hot lures anything orange,red ,or chrome. I havent saw alot of boats out trolling . Make shure if you come to ludington you have all required safety gear, the coast guard means well but have upset alot of locals with constant checks, I was checked and boarded 2 times in under a 4hr period Monday.They are always friendly but some just cant accept they are here for our safty. Copeyian and city ramps have been in 2 weeks now.Good luck and tight lines.

Rapalas and thin fins are always good choices for spring browns. Drag em off inline planer boards and try to find the warmest water available, even if its a little muddy. Good Luck!

I picked up a dvd last weekend that was made by best chance too and they talked about thin fish. They said thin fish were deadly for spring coho and browns.

Hey toanton, Ive never seen lures like that, with hooks on both ends. May I ask what they are called? Must be a Lake Michigan secret weapon. I wonder if I could find them here.

toanton lives in Russia.

correct Frank, ryba=fish rybee, is plural,

anyway, those were interesting looking spoons and and I remember seeing something similar in shape called a doctor spoon I think. So many lures , so little time.

Just a little more "full bodied" than the Doctor Spoon made by Prescott Spinner Co. (yellow bird) I Like those color patterns. Glo? Doctors could be troller with either end as the front. Single or trebble - both came in the package. Used to be great BT lures.

I can catch a few words in some of the European speech, enough to know what's going on.:) A lot of the languages are similar.:)

Kuusamo spoons are used here in Sweden too, but mainly for northern pike.

Sorry for hijacking the thread.

OT, see some rapala plugs sure the work fine for salmon/trout, the jointed will be best ones for slower speeds.
