    Fox makes a good assortment of spinners for trout.

    I agree with him there. Trout aren't gonna go after anything big. I still think powerbait always does the best for me.

    I like mepps spinners, but they cost more.

    Panther martins are good. I like the black body with the gold spinner and yes you can catch some bigger trout on some big spinners. Rapala's also work quit well for larger trout. How big of trout are you targeting? And what kind of water are you fishing?

    I agree with whoever said blue fox makes good spinners for trout, here in CA, i like to do a lot of high mountain trout fishing, I get the Deep Runner Blue Fox Spinners, Walmart sells a five pack for 5 bucks or so, seems to be better than spending $2.00 on a single spinner. Work great, alwayz catch big trout, only the real aggressive babies will go after these.

    This is a picture of the spinners, the trout really go after the yellow tail, same with the white, Blue fox puts like glitterly fiber optics in the tail, seems to be the best spinners for me, they come in like 5 different colors and designs.
