All kidding aside, Imhave no idea how the trout magnet might work. I have some but have never used them. If they work let me know.

pa_yote, I actually knew the guy that invented them. He lives and works down in Searcy, AR. He's an alum of Harding University, which I attended for a while. Honestly, it's a pretty good trout lure. They're not that expensive so....why not? Give it a try. I've heard good things about them.

I too know Jeff (the inventor). Everyone has a go to bait when nothing else is working that you feel extremely confident with. The Trout Magnet is mine. I have cought more fish on the Trout Magnet than any other live or artificial bait that i've used. I can't say enough about it. I will say that for it to be as affective as possible, a lot of rod action is required. You want to make it tumble and turn while presenting it to the fish. Kind of like a really fast jigging motion. Drive's them trout crazy. Well, good luck (although you won't need it with the Magnet).

I only talked with Jeff a few times and never had the chance to go fishing with him unfortunately. Long story short, he was good friends with some friends of mine.

Yes, I went to HU for two semesters. Fall of '99 and fall of '01. Couldn't keep my grades up good enough to stay for any extended period of time. :hysterical: Had a blast hunting and fishing around there, though. Spent MANY an hour on the Little Red and a place called the Cherokee State Forest (or something like that) out near Heber Springs.

Oh yeah! Same story here for the most part. Got married, left home, and started school all within a week or two. Needless to say, i was quite the hunter and fisherman and not so much the student or husband. I archery hunted at Hurricane Lake? and some other land over by Bald Knob. It was Great Fun for the 2 years I was there.
