I got to thinking about this last week. Wednesday we caught two limits of 15"/16" trout trolling flashers with a night crawler. Not my favorite way to fish but it usually works and the guy I was fishing with has family members that wanted some fish.

Came back two days later: same kind of weather, same time, same area in the same lake, same rig. Skunked for two hours or so. Tied on a Rattletrap, trolled it, by itself, the same distance behind the boat and limited again with the same size fish in an hour.

It's not always my first choice but I've caught more different types of fish, both fresh and inshore salt water, with Rattletraps than any other lure.

Trolling or casting. I've caught more with the Rattletrap casting.

The floating Rapala.

Used them in various sizes since the 60s. Trolling or casting will catch a wide variety of fish.

Personally have caught largemouth, smallmouth, white bass, striped bass, yellow bass, white perch, perch, walleye, northern pike, pickerel, crappie, freshwater drum, American shad, channel cat, brown trout, rainbow trout, lake trout, kokanee salmon, rock bass, several varities of sunfish, and even carp on one version or another.

Can't go wrong with that one in this area. From panfish to Pike and both types of bass found here, that black backed gold Rapala catches them all. Just put a small split ring in the nose loop to add to the action, then very the retrieve.

In the faster warm water streams here the size 0 to size 2 mepps plain copper spinner gets alot of attention once spawning is done.

In Canadian lakes, about even between a Johnsons Silver Minnow and a Daredevil in the red and white or yellow and red diamonds.

Lately the various leadheaded jig/swim shad combinations have caught everything from white perch, croaker, blues, weakfish, redfish, sea trout, and stripers in the brackish water of the lower Potomac and the Chesapeake Bay in general.

The one fly to not go without in fresh or Saltwater around here is a Chartreuese over white Clouser minnow. We have caught everything in the area on these.

I must agree with Deertracker and fyshbum, the 3" Rapala and maybe a Panther Martin will catch just about anything in freshwater.

I pretty much only fish for trout. Popgear and worm has always equaled success when trolling where I usually fish. If I want to try and catch something bigger I really like using a flat fish.

Casting from shore I've had good success with a red and white dare devil.

Lots of good suggestions on here though.

If you need Buffalo Bore you are using the wrong cartridge.
