A couple of days ago, I shared some of the best lure tips for trout fishing. One of those tips was to tip your lure with some sort of bait (nightcrawler, PowerBait, etc.). That trick will work with any trout lure (spinners, spoons, etc.).
Well there's actually a lure manufacturer that makes a lure (called the, Minnow Mangler) that is designed specifically for adding minnows to it. The design combines a spinner with some other bait, such as a minnow, though you can add whatever live or plastic bait you prefer to it.
The Mangler - fishing lures also makes lures that glow in the dark and make noise (also mentioned in the "best lure tips" article mentioned above). Check them out and tell us what you think.
