Not just saltwater!

Zo-Zuri lures is a name that is synonymous with saltwater fishing. Little do people know that Zo-Zuri is also a fantastic trout lure. The pins-minnow series comes in two great trout fishing sizes the 2 3/4 in floating and sinking pins-minnow and the 2 inch floating pins-minnow. They come in a wide verity of colors and patterns. My personal favorite patterns are the creek chub, brown trout and rainbow trout pattern. The rainbow trout pattern does very well in streams where smaller rainbow trout are stocked (example Blue River) and other large streams. The action on the pins-minnow is close to the x-rap with less "slash" and more wiggle. They can be very hard to find at times, but I keep at least 15 with me at any time. They do get a bit pricey, but I highly recommend giving them a try this season.

They have great action even while using a slow retrieve. This is great for early season trout fishing.

They also come with some of the sharpest and strongest hooks out there. My doctor can speak for that! He had to take one out of my hand last summer.

    Thanks for the fishing tips here. I will check them out at Sportsman's Warehouse near by.

  2. Thanks for the comments Mel! I am going to try to post about some great lures that not many people know about.
