The way many start trout fishing is with a cheap little rod and a few worms. Bait fishing is one of the most enjoyable ways of fishing and often the least expensive too - no matter if it is trout - or from a jetty fishing for salt water species.
This article is on the simple basics of bait fishing for trout. There are several methods used to catch trout, and most novice trout anglers begin by learning to catch trout on light spinning tackle and bait fish first, before moving on up to the more advanced methods of trout fishing like spinning with spinners, hard body and soft plastic lures.

Huntsmans Lake 18/2/2012

Trev and I spent the afternoon on Saturday fishing Huntsman Lake. We arrived at  12.30 to a perfect overcast day with high expectations that some fish would be rising, after a slow cruise around the lake, not one fish was spotted, so it was away with the fly rods and out with the hard lures.
We started drifting along the western shore of a very low lake, 3rd cast and there was a small fish of about 3/4 of a pound in the boat From then on until “go home time” at 7.00pm it was one hit after another with 19 fish boated for the day, we were getting hit’s every 5 or six casts.

Fishing in about a meter of water, all the fish where caught on the Yep gold bomber and yellow peril.
A mate was with us and he trolled cobra’s all afternoon. ending up with 6 fish.
All the fish where in very good condition and all a pound and under in weight.
Dale & Trev
