Setting Up the Basic Spinning Rod
Spooling the Reel (for Spin Fishers)
Bottom Fishing Rig
This is one of the best lake fishing rigs you can use to catch trout. I've had a lot of success using this rig over the years and provided more detail about it (and other rigs) in the "Trout Fishing Tips" eBook.
The three videos above will help you get your rod set up as well as your first trout fishing rig. Of course, there's still a lot more trout fishing. The "Trout Fishing Tips" eBook offers a lot more information and tips geared toward helping you catch more trout. You'll also find plenty more of trout fishing tips on this site!
