    Trout Ninja,

    Thanks for all the great tips on this website!
    After getting skunked for years, my younger son and I are beginning to catch some.
    We got three yesterday!
    Here’s a little video of the adventure.
    Keep up the great work! I am sure I am not the only one taking an advantage of father/son fishing bonding.

    Daniel, Thanks for commenting. I was blessed as a teenage (that’s a million years ago) to go fishing in the Mammoth Lakes, Bishop, Independence, Lone Pine area. Including backpacking back country lakes. My back country lake and stream “go to” rig is simply a small Panther Martin spinner tied directly to 4 lb test line. Buy black body/gold blade, and yellow body/silver blade. Get the smallest ones they make. Buy at least half a dozen because you’ll lose some to rocks, inattention, or just brush-choked streams. I’m making a grand assumption the trout you are fishing for are either naturally spawned or stocked as fingerlings. Regarding flies, unless you are a fly-fisherman already, you’ll be fishing with a clear bubble and a fly combination. Any of the local tackle shops will give you recommendations for the area you wish to fish. Now Go Catch Some Trout! ~ Trout Ninja ~

    Hi, I’m a backpacker and since most of my trips take me to lakes and rivers in the sierras, I thought, “Hey, I could catch food”. So the ultralight set ups for trout are great. After failing a few times I tried to look for tips and it took me forever to actually find someone who showed what to do. I was wondering if you had tips to set up lure based rigs for both lakes and small streams. I’d like to know how to use spinners and flies (since I can’t rely on having bait) while I’m outback for a week+ at a time.

    Thanks for your encouraging comments. It’s good to be right, but it’s better to be lucky! It’s taken me over 40 years to not rely so much on Luck to catch fish. I’ve made lots of mistakes on my journey, and I never give up, continue to learn. Let’s see. Teacher in LA. Looking at your email domain, sounds like LA Unified. SoCal trout fishing, unless you are in the mountains, is probably slowing down now due to weather, But there is always trout in the high country.
    I’ll bet most of your 4th graders have never caught fish. Maybe a bunch have gone fishing, but the difference maker is catching. Catching is a confidence stoker. Fishing (not catching) reinforces reliance on luck. Enough of the mind stuff. Let me know how I can help your students. I’ll do nearly anything to turn others on to fishing (catching). ~ Trout Ninja ~

    Used your rig yesterday with a twist. Didn’t have slip sinkers like the egg shape but had old trinagle loop sinkers worked great. Caught four trout in less then hour with my two boys (6 & 1) when no one else caught one. Everyone was asking what we were using. Funny thing was they were using the same bait with the wrong rig. Don’t worry didn’t show them the rig but I did tell them to find the trout ninja online. Think you’ll have some more hits on you tube. Would like to see some action video of the killer rig. I think it would help viewer understand how fast it works. Maybe some creek or river tips too would be helpful as well. But most important keeping kids hooked on fishing. See ya gotta go fishing.

    Donnie, Thanks for your comments. That really helps me out. I’ll be putting more videos up soon. Anything in particular you’d like to see, just let me know. ~ Trout Ninja

    Great video. Loved the way you talked thru the knots for the rig for younger fishing buds. This rig is great for trout all year round and young kids learning to fish. The nice thing is it catches fish by itself for them. The hardest thing about for kids is setting the hook, but in this case your rig set the hook for them. I use this rig with my two boys (2 and 6) and we catch fish all the time. It also keeps them occupied by watching the line. Awesome job in sharing this secret and look forward to more video tips.
