They don't mention this, but the Flicker Minnow works great for trout too. It is my go-to Crankbait in the fall

What is the best way to tie line to a flicker shad or do you think a snap is best
Cory Hamilton (15 days ago)
I only use a Rapala knot with these lures. It gives the flicker the right movement.

Hi here in Calif this spring the water in our lakes look like yours chocolate soup very dirty from all the rain. I am trolling for trout. These are small Rainbows (mostly planted) and some German Browns what size and especially color in this soup water would you start with?

Hello D Kat! Thank you for your great question. Typically when trolling for trout in dark waters, start with brighter colors, like our Chartreuse Pearl and Lime Chrome that create contrast and flash for the fish to see. If they don’t bite, work towards more subtle and natural looking colors. As with all fishing, sometimes it comes down to trial and error!

What do you recommend for a 10 to 12 ft of water but has a lot of green on bottom

For what species? I'd be paying more attention to the size of the forage in the lake. You want to match the size of the shad or whatever bait fish are present. Pay attention to see if any walleye or bass you catch are spitting up half-eaten bait fish, than try to match. As far as colors, same thing. If the main forage fish in the lake is say a Gizzard Shad, then silver & black colors are an obvious choice. Golden Shiners? Then a gold pattern will be good. Perch? You get the idea. If the water is clear, stick with natural colors. If it's stained, go for more brighter colors like chartreuse or purple, or clown colors. That's basically my rule of thumb. There are exceptions. On my local walleye lake, purple is a very dominant color. The main forage fish are Gizzard Shad and Yellow Perch. Those color patterns work too, but purple is always a performer. Whether it's on a crankbait or a hair jig. I'd probably start with a 3 inch version, it will dive roughly 10 to 11 feet depending on your line choice. If the walleye are suspended, you want your lure to be running on their level or just above them. I'm not sure if this is true but I was told a long time ago by walleye guide that walleyes don't look down beneath them when they're hunting. They normally hide on the bottom and look upwards to watch for the bait fish. So I started making sure I was running my lures just above their heads if I saw them relating to the bottom on my graph. So far so good. Not scientific, and I'm not sure if it's even true but I've had success.

Not many lures can compare to a flicker shad lure. I really like them. But for some reason. No matter the size, color, time and place on the Ohio River. I'm not catching more fish.
