Today we go to Fries, Virginia, to hear from Jessup Lambert, who’s got a tip to help you catch more trout.
Hey guys, on this week’s N1 Minute, we’ve got a few tips for you when it comes to trout fishing.
The trout lure
I’m going to focus on using the two-and-a-half inch Gulp Minnow… the Watermelon Pearl. Any kind works, but I prefer this one. My advice would be to hook it up with a drop shot, probably 8-10 inches. Use a size 6 hook, bait hook, it doesn’t matter which way.
How to fish it
Your best success can come from either throwing the Gulp Minnow upstream and retrieving it back toward you and letting it swim in the current. Usually, the drop shot will hold the minnow in place. It will almost turn around and look upstream, giving it a life-like feature.
If you cast downstream, I’d suggest a slow retrieval, that way it can do the same thing, and flutter in the current, giving it a life-like feature. And the trout tend to strike it when it stops moving. Generally, in 2-3 feet of water you’ll have your best success. I have fished it in lakes, bringing it across the bottom. You’ll have the same results. It doesn’t matter if it’s dingy or clear. I’ve had the same success with the Gulp Minnow.
Thanks for tuning in to this weeks N1 Minute. I hope you get to Put A Hook N1.

Find out what deer hunting and playing the lottery have in common. Stick with us for the N1 Outdoors N1 Minute.
Suppose I knew the five winging numbers to the lottery and all you had to do was guess the order they go into to win. How many of you would refuse that information and instead, decide to guess the numbers yourself and the order they go in?
Hopefully none of you, but that’s exactly what many deer hunters do every season by not paying attention to the wind.
Wind direction is critical in deer hunting
All the scouting and trail can picture is in the world won’t make up for poor planning when it comes to wind direction. For you bow hunters out there, it’s even more critical. Always be aware of which way the wind is blowing, not only in regards to stand location, but also in relation to the entry and exit routes to and from your stand or hunting location.
How to hunt the wind (keep it in your face)
Stay downwind of the deer in all situations. For those of you not familiar with the terms “upwind” and “downwind,” an easy way to remember, is to be sure the wind is in your face when approaching and hunting your favorite trail or location.
Paying careful attention to wind direction certainly won’t help you win the lottery, but when combined with effective scouting, planning and accuracy, it will increase your chances of seeing and taking more deer.
We hope you have a great week and remember… “where the moments happen, we’ll meet you there.” We’ll see you next time.
