The Original
Baby Croaker Lure (BC)
By Toby Hogan


The molds for this lure were made from a plaster cast of a real Baby Croaker

If you're after large trout on the average 4 to 6 pounds, sometimes weighing upwards of 9 pounds; Spring is the time for big trout.  This time of year is the main spawning period for Sow Trout.  Big fish have big appetites, and these big fish are caught on baby croakers. In April and May large numbers of baby croakers start showing up and continue to the end of September.  They are from 4 to 6 inches and big trout prefer them over shrimp and will often times only want croakers.  To get the attention of big trout, make the baby croaker lure appear like an injured bait fish that is slowly dying.  Cast out and take up slack in your line with a few quick turns on your reel.  Allow your lure to slowly settle in the water a few seconds before you make your retrieve and pause from time to time to allow the lure to drop and sink to the bottom.  Repeat the process as you continue to reel in.  Retrieval speed will depend on what fish want that day.

     The baby croaker lure can be fished under a popping cork. When the current is running strong, cast into the current, let your cork drift down, popping occasionally.  You can also let your line free spool and allow your cork to drift with the current.  Other times when the current is not strong, cast out and retrieve your cork popping, then let it sit for a minute.  Sometimes you will get a bite just after giving the cork a pop.  This lure requires patience and attention to detail, but will produce good results.
