Started to use this lure in 2012 when I saw a kid catching trout when the rest of us were not in late morning. I asked him what kind of lure he was using and he said it's a Jake lure they use a lot out west. I went to Bass Pro and the customer service people were very helpful to find this lure for me and the next fishing trip I used this first thing. Caught 3 trout within 20 min, thats pretty good considering Penna. Since then I have caught trout,bass,they love it, and pickerell. Gold w/ red dots and silver and white lures work quite well. They are a good investment in your box.

My favorite go-to lure
If I had to rely on only one lure for the rest of my days, it would definitely be a Jake's. Catches when nothing else will. Try the gold with red dots if you can only buy one.

Spin-A-Lure / trout spoon
Good spoon. Slow retrieve, I have caught alot of trout. Rainbows really bite this spoon. I use the silver mostly. The erratic action is effective. Recommended~ try one.

Best Lure On Earth
I fish the Uinta Mountains and Boulder Mountains in Utah and I consistently use the gold with red dots and catch my trout limit every time. I have had more success with the gold/red than any other jakes lure but the silver/red works well too.
I have used this with and without a leader line and swivel.... either way works.
***I would recommend a swivel right against the lure because occasionally the jakes lures will have a slightly sharp edge and cut your line... or you could just shave off the sharp edge.***
Realing faster to stay high on the lake when the fish are really active or realing medium to slow speeds to stay down deaper, it doesn't matter. My tackle box has nothing but jakes lures in it... and I have every color to try on specific fish that I'm aiming for.
