Cutbait for trout other than lake trout
« on: Feb 04, 2018, 01:11 PM »
I catch a lot of suckers where I fish and it just dawned on me that I should use them for Cutbait. There are no lake trout in the lake I fish but is full of rainbow, cutthroat, and brown trout. Going to give it a try sometime, anybody else ever use sucker bait for large trout other than lake trout?

I tip my spoons with a section of minnow.  Should work for cut up baits as well.

For more information read my MN nice journal

We did use sucker meat for browns on the colorado river, but I donít remember having tons of success. Seems the roe was way better for both bows and browns.

I have caught stocked rainbow on pieces of cutbait while fishing for catfish. Don't guys on the great lakes troll fillets for salmon and trout?
