I've been thinking of giving these a try through the ice this winter both for walleyes and for trout. What sizes and colors should I have? Who carries them in the Denver area?" Any comments on effectiveness or technique would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I haven't found them anywhere yet? Looks like we will have to order from Thorne Bros! They have three different sizes and five different colors. The large size is best suited for Pike. The medium size should be good for both Walleye's and big trout!

I bought the 2" last year thinking that wasn't going to be all that big. Boy was I wrong, that is the biggest 2" bait you will ever see...very broad. I would guess you are right, best suited for big pike. I think I will order the medium size one this year. Perch and Dace look really good for colors. Best to fish these with a lighter rod as they are no where near as heavy as the jigging baits and are tough to feel. It has a beautiful slow drop to it.

I am ordering the Hot perch and the Metallic Orange for the Pike size. I have heard that trout like the smaller size? I have tried the smaller jigging raps for trout with not much luck?

I just talked to Milt Poffel at Uncle Milty's. He has ordered some and will have them sometime next week. He didn't know what the price would be.

Thanks Don! I need to drive out there anyway and leave a reel for repair.
