Some people have asked how to trap rig the stocker trout and I have been meaning to do the pics for a while but haven't sat down to do it. So here is the rig straight from the Thigpin bro's who make the bait. All you need is a short piece of heavy wire, two sleeves, a nice sharp 2/0 hook like gammie or owner and a pair of crimping pliers. Just crimp it down nice and hard and you are good to go.

I know a lot of guys that use braid and swear by it. Personally Rod & Todd (that make the bait) have been doing it this way since the inception of the bait. I have never used the braid because of the confidence I have in the wire. I would rather have two crimps instead of two knots any day.
