I switched my top water from Mullet color to Rapalla SSW11 HCH - Hot Chartreuse. This seems to light up the trout.

Bone colored super spook jr. 1st thing in the morning.

Mirrodine 17m if water is choppy in the morning or once the sun gets up a bit.

Fluke on 1/4 ounce jig head once the sun gets up.

All of the above lures are excellent red fish baits as well.

Alex has been putting the beat down on the big trout with the mirrodine 17m. It has been a very hot bait lately.

If you go pick up a new super spook jr. It will benefit you greatly to change the hooks to some #2 extra wide gap hooks, I prefer the Mustad ultra points they're razor sharp.

I usually use 12 lb mono on top water baits but you can use braid. If you go with braid on the top waters then I recommend that you use a mono leader. If you use mono then you can tie directly to the lure.

On mirrolures I also usually use braid but I've lately been using small baits so I've been using 10 lb braid with a 15 lb flouorcarbon leader. The small braided line allows me to make very long casts with small lures.

I always use braid with a fluorocarbon leader when fishing jig heads or any other bait that has a single hook.

None of the above are rules but just what works for me. Ultimately you should use the line that you are most comfortable with.

If you don't mind, what color patterns have worked on the mirrodines?
Thanks
