The Silver Bullet

The story goes… Every year I look forward to chasing the searun trout we call “silver bullets!” Between late August and mid November is a prime time to target these guys in the lower reaches of most decent rivers.

The searun trout migrate up the rivers from the ocean to chase the whitebait and smelt.

They enter the river and present silver chrome , plump and feisty!

Fantastic fighters that hit the lure hard and make searing deep runs that will have your reel screaming.

The eating quality is excellent with meat very similar in colour to salmon.

Use light mono or braid 6-8lb with 8lb fluorocarbon leader.

Anything replicating a smelt will give you a good chance.

Lures such as Grey ghost ,

Cannibal trout, Berkley T tail olive, Veltec green / silver

Put these on your radar for next season.
