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.

The only thing I need in my tackle box
I fish Yellowstone lake almost exclusively. This thing kills them here. Cuttthroat and Lake Trout can't leave it alone. Gold with red dots, regardless of water conditions. Amazing.

Best Trout Lure
I first used this lure back in 1993. Some friends of mine went to Yellowstone and caught a ton of trout on these things. When they came back they brought extra for me. I spent the two summers catching more trout than I ever dreamed of in lakes around Tahoe.
This is a must have and always my go to trout lure. I have had the best luck with the gold, silver, and black with yellow dots. Tie it directly to the end of the line with no leader or swivel, cast, and real at a slow to medium speed.
The most important thing I learned with this lure is to always have extra so that when I lost one, I could keep catching fish.

I worked this past summer in Yellowstone National Park and bought a few of these before I left. They are not lying when they said that this was the number 1 lure in Yellowstone. Catching cutthroat trout was a breeze with this lure (gold with red dots).
I brought the lures back east with me after the summer and tried them on some lakes here. The browns and rainbows here in NC love this thing.
