Trout Magnet Kit:

Check out these kits. They come with everything you need to do a little trout magnet fishing including the plastics, jigheads, EZ – Trout floats and more!

Trout Bubble Floats: &

These bubble floats work great whether you are fishing a dry fly or a trout magnet!

Trout Inline Spinner Kits: &

If you are new to using inline spinners I’d recommend getting a kit with a variety of them. Panther Martin has a great variety pack!

Trout Inline Spinner – Joe Flies: &

If you have quite a few inline spinners but are still looking for some other options; I’d recommend Joe Flies! They are light weight and super effective on trout, both wild and stocked! Definitely one of my favorites!

Trout Rod:

I use the 5 foot berkley cherrywood ultra light rod. The sensitivity on the rod is amazing, which makes it great to feel the trout. I also use this rod for catching panfish. The light action makes the fight a lot of fun!

Trout Reel:

The 1000FE is a great choice. It is not too big, but still holds a good amount of line. I have used my shimano reel for 10 years and have not had any problems with it. It still is smooth as butter!

Trout Combo:

Here is an option for you combo lovers out there, pick the light 5’6″! I use a pflueger trion reel for trout, crappier, and bass fishing and it works great. The rod appears to have great sensitivity, but still have enough backbone to set the hook.

Other Trout Rods & Reels:

Trout Fly Kits: &

I’d recommend picking yourself up some trout flies! If you don’t know, you can actually fly fish with spinning gear really effectively (we have a video teaching you how to do it)! You can fish them like a jig or float them under an EZ trout float!

Trout Strike Indicators: &

When float fishing for trout you need to get some strike indicators in order to be as effective as possible! These lightweight floats will ensure you see even the smallest of bites!

Flourocarbon Fishing Line:

When trout fishing you need to have flourocarbon line – as it’s almost invisible to the trout’s eyes (they have very good visibility and if they notice fishing line they may be hesitant to bite). I usually run a 4lb flouro leader!

Marabou Jig:

Get your variety pack of Marabou jigs today, so you can hook up on your PB! The thing I love about these lures is that they are cheap for how effective they are!

Split Shots:

You guessed it, another variety pack. It is really important to have a range of split shots you can put on your line. This allows you to test and see which weight works best for each of your reels, jig, and line type. Not to mention the ability to target different depths of water.

Powerbait/Mice Tails: &

Powerbait/Mice Tails are another relatively new product and they are super effective! They obviously look like a worm but also put out scent into the water – attracting trout from all around!

Pink Trout Worms:

If you don’t have them yet…you need them. Almost nothing beats a pink trout worm floated under a bobber. They can catch anything from stocked trout to big, wild steelhead – they get the job done!
