    Anybody have any experience with Trout Magnets? I hear they're the best thing since sliced bread but apparently we don't know how to use them. Thanks and tight lines.

    I float them on a fly pole like a nymph, caught 5 in two hours like that.

      I though you threw in a bunch of corn filled with metal shavings and then come back in an hour. Just drag magnet across the bottom and take your limit of the trout you want and let the rest go.

        Does anybody know how to use Duck Tape? I've tried it in different colors, but never caught nothing with it yet.

          Never heard of them. What is it? Spinner, power bait, fly?

            It's a small rubber jig that comes in different colors with different heads available for it. There is also one for crappie.

              Just looking at them it looks like a small jig or rigging them on a Beetlespin would be the way to go. Maybe texas rigged but you would have to find a pretty small EWG hook. I would try the jig or especially the Bettlespin first, those things catch just about anything that swims.

                    I'm kind of suprised so few have heard of them. I am like you 007, I've used them a couple times but haven't found a system that works so far. I've only worked them similar to how I would a crappie jig or even streamer, twitching across the current. But they seem like the new hot thing the last couple years around the stores and creek sides.

                        Friend and his son swear by them and got their limits with them last weekend in the Smoke Holes. That's about all they use.

                          I use to use a big magnet on the end of my line for steelhead.
                          Throw it out there and whop! And it only worked for STEELhead, wouildn't attract a sucker, or any other fish.

                            I mainly only use trout magnet. I haven't gone out once and not had trout atleast follwing the magnet. I constantly change up the colors and presentation to see which is working best that day or for that stream. I've also caught bass, sunfish, crappie, bluegills, and strangely enough catfish.

                              Hey 007, I use trout magnets all the time here in WV. After finding out that they were started in Moatsville, WV i decided i'd give them a shot and they have now always been in my vest. White with a gold head is usually my ticket. The trick is to throw it a good ways up stream and let it drift to the bottom or as close as possible, then snap your ur wrist giving the magnet a hard twitch. Try to not just let it dead drift as the fish just seem uninterested. Often times after the twitch is when i get most of my strikes. Brookies and Browns seem to take to the magnets more than the rainbows, atleast with my experience but thats not to say rainbows still won't pound them. I've also took a very small ball, just enough to cover the exposed hook, of berkley's orange, salmon peach, or garlic powerbait and have had deadly results. Mostly with a white magnet, gold head, and small ball of orange powerbait. Hope this helps you out and good luck, let me know if you have any success with this.

                                If Virginia had followed through with their anti gun legislation you would have seen the start of the 2nd civil war in the US.
