Are Others Keeping Secrets From You?
Believe it or not, there are trout fishing tips and secrets that many anglers would rather not share with you. Why? Because it either makes themselves look better or they're trying to keep a favorite fishing spot a secret.
I don't work this way! I love trout fishing and love showing others how to catch more fish!
I grew up fishing and surrounded by people willing to share their fishing tips and secrets. and I even discovered a few of my own.
I'm also very curious by nature and so I've spent countless years studying trout and how and why some things works and some don't.
Whether you're a beginner trout fisher or an intermediate angler, here's your opportunity to discover everything you need to know to raise your game to the next level.
Here's your chance to discover some of the best trout fishing techniques, tips, and secrets that have been proven to work in catching trout!
Trout fishing is a lot of fun (when you're catching trout)! But if you're not catching trout, it can be very boring and frustrating!
Understanding Trout is the
Key to Successfully Catching Them!
Trout behave differently in lakes, rivers and streams, which often pose many challenges for anglers. Some of the best lake fishers struggle to catch trout in rivers and streams - and vice versa.
Not only do trout behave differently in lakes compared to rivers and streams, but different species of trout also behave a bit differently. And wild trout offer far more challenges than hatchery trout.
And if those weren't enough challenges, you also have geography, elevations, temperature, seasonal, and other factors - all of which affect your ability to catch trout.
Some folks are able to master a lake, river or stream in their area and then find themselves challenged after moving to another state. For some, it's almost like starting over!
Did you know there are at least 8 different common species of trout as well as several different hybrid and subspecies of trout?
There's rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout, golden trout, bull trout, apache trout, gila trout, and lake trout - to name a few. Then there are common hybrid trout such as tiger trout, splake trout, brookinaw trout, brownbow trout, bowcutt trout and more.
While still part of the trout family, all of these different trout species offer unique challenges to trout fishers.
Ever stood by watching others catch trout and wondered what you were doing wrong? Ever find yourself wondering what bait or lure they were using?
I've been there and done that! I’ve had good fishing days and bad ones. I know the frustration of spending all day at the lake catching nothing but weeds, twigs, and other people's abandoned tackle. I’ve come home with only a sunburn as proof I’ve been at the lake or river all day.
I've spent years fishing for trout and figured I knew every trick in the book. And yet, I've watched others around me catch more trout and wondered what they were doing differently.
I've been able to catch trout at one lake, but then struggle at others using the same trout fishing techniques. But then one day, things changed!
So let me ask you this..
Would you like to discover how to catch trout more more consistently, and in less time?
Do You Want to be an Average Trout Fisher
or a Great Trout Fisher?
I learned how to trout fish when I was about 5 years old (which means I’ve been fishing for over 35 years). I’ve caught thousands of trout over the years. But still, I felt like I was having too many bad fishing days.
Then one day, I decided it was time to change things! My nephews wanted me to teach them how to trout fish - and that of course that meant I needed to start catching more trout, more often. And I needed to be able to answer all of their questions!
So I started researching every technique known to man. I read countless fishing articles and books. I watched trout fishing videos. I listened to all the trout experts and their tips. I talked with local fishermen, trout biologists and various folks at the Fish and Game Departments (practically driving them crazy with all of my
I started putting my math and science knowledge to work.that training to good use. I started paying attention to how trout behaved in different situations, and I started taking notes on what worked and what didn't when I was fishing.
Then I started learning how different lakes require different tackle and tactics. Water clarity, structure of the lake, and other things play a significant role in the appropriate tackle and fishing techniques used. One day, I discovered a fishing technique that seemed totally illogical - but helped me quickly catch my limit at one lake!
Next, I started studying trout - how they behave and how their senses work. I learned how trout behave differently in lakes compared to rivers and streams. I learned the difference between hatchery trout and wild trout. I learned how a trout's metabolism works and how water temperature affects it - as well as my ability to catch them! In short, I learned to think like trout.
Knowing What Doesn't Work
is Half the Battle
When all was said and done, I discovered that I had been fishing passively – that is, throwing my bait out and waiting for a fish to swim by and grab it. Sometimes it worked, but more often it didn’t.
I knew I was fishing with bait and lures trout liked – but what I didn’t know was how my handling them was turning fish off. I came to understand why a trusted lure would work one day, but not the next.
I started trying old fishing techniques that I had learned for saltwater fishing – and I started catching trout with those same techniques. These techniques take an aggressive approach to trout fishing.
I also discovered that in difficult fishing months (like summer), I had to take a more active approach to getting my hook where the fish were actually feeding – as opposed to waiting and hoping they’d find my hook.
And when I put all these new found lessons together, I discovered that I was catching a lot more trout in half the time. I was having more good days than bad days. I was even able to catch trout in the hottest summer months when nobody else was. Why? I learned how to find the right the depth the trout were feeding when surface waters became too warm for them. And you can too!
Now I Want to Share These
Trout Fishing Secrets With You.
I love to share information with others – especially information that makes their life easier. Nothing is more frustrating than spending all day fishing and coming home empty handed. I want you to enjoy catching more trout! And of course, I'd love for you to be the hero in your kid's eyes when you teach them how to fish!
I’ve read just about every other trout fishing eBook out there and while some were good, they still seemed to be lacking something. None of them seemed to cover more than one topic - and pictures were scarce. Let's face it - many of us learn better by seeing actual images.
One of the eBooks I read covers spinner fishing for trout in rivers and streams – but nothing else. Another eBook focused on nymph fishing for trout – but nothing else. And while there is a plethora of information on fly fishing for trout, there is very little for spin fishing. While those eBooks did contain some nice information, I wanted an eBook that covers multiple trout fishing tactics including lake fishing and spin fishing.
There are a variety of fishing techniques for trout – but most people stick to one or two. One of the most important lessons I learned was that if you're not catching trout, it's time to change tactics!
But none of these other eBooks offered more than one or two trout fishing techniques. None of them covered lake fishing. And let's face it, fishing for trout in lakes is a LOT different then fishing for them in rivers and streams.
You can find all sorts of eBooks for bass fishing – but not near as many for trout.
So I decided it was time to fix this problem. I decided to compile all of the knowledge and tips I’ve learned over the years from other fishermen and countless articles written by pros, as well as my own experiences to create my own trout fishing resource.
I figured if I wrote down all the questions that people were always asking me, then others would benefit too. See what others are saying about the Trout Fishing Tips eBook.
I just wanted to thank you so much for the tips. My first time out after reading you Ebook I landed the biggest fish I've ever caught. Thanks so much. Sal

"Thanks for the these tips! They were easy to apply and I started catching trout 2 minutes after casting my line! I've learned how to pick better fishing spots and now have a better understanding of how much temperature plays a big role in fishing".
