When I’m trout fishing, I usually start with 2 types of lure. A Spinnerbait or a Minnow Style Jerkbait. Minnows are great for deep, slow pockets, as well as shallow cuts of quick current. Trout are extremely territorial and even when fish aren’t actively feeding, trout often take a reactionary swing at minnow baits to protect their feeding lane. The Mystic Minnow uses Japanese blanks and hardware with size 8 Gamakatsu in-line hooks that are hand tied and epoxied. These Mystic Minnows are built to last and painted with proven patterns by some incredible artists.
