Trout Fishing with Stone Cold Beads
Using beads for trout fishing is one of the most enjoyable forms of fishing an angler can have in their arsenal of fishing tactics. This last week we were on the Big Quil River testing out our Ultra Fresh Orange Roe and Cheese Moe Roe natural stone fishing beads on some aggressive sea-run coastal cutthroat.
It was a feeding frenzy! There is simply nothing a hungry trout loves more than salmon eggs. When salmon spawn you’ll find a pile of trout following the school waiting for some fresh salmon eggs to come drifting along. This is where Stone Cold Beads really shines.
Also using beads for trout fishing is an excellent substitute for natural roe. Especially when you run out of eggs or wish to avoid the mess of using natural bait altogether.
For our test run, we decided to rigg our beads under a float. It’s a simple set up and because of the heaviness of the natural stone beads, no additional weight was necessary! Also, trout have an incredible sense of smell. As an extra attractant, we applied some Pro-Cure Salmon Egg Oil to help entice the bite. This allowed us to provide the most natural presentation we could offer.
It was pure excitment to see the aggressive trout attacking our beads! We caught our first trout on a “Cheese Moe Roe” Fishing bead. As the bobber dropped with a quick hook set we were rewarded with a beautiful 12 inch. Rainbow trout. A few more casts and another bobber down next thing you know we have a nice little 14 inch. coastal cutthroat on on the line.
Next, we switched out our beads to the “Ultra Fresh Orange” stones. I applied some more salmon egg scent and it was off to the races. This was when things started to really heat up and the Coastal Cutthroat went crazy. In the course of 30 minutes, we caught two more cutthroat and another rainbow trout, for a bobber doggin good time. In addition, all the fish caught were released without harm.
It was so fun to see these trout just attack our beads. It seemed like every trout in the hole was trying to take a crack at them. This test run was truly a great time. There’s nothing better than having a great day fishing with your own custom gear. We look forward to testing more of our trout fishing beads and providing the results here on our website. Yes!
