Bait Hook

I need help. What should I use for lake trout and lake bass?

If my dad's shoulder doesn't hurt him, we might go lake fishing Sunday.

What kind of bait, hooks, sinkers, leaders, line test, etc. should I use for lake-based trout and bass as well as catfish?

Catfish love cut bait fished on or near the bottom and channel cats will chase down spinnerbaits. But if dad's shoulder is hurting, you may want to stay with bait fishing until he's reeled in a few and forgot about his shoulder. You can use a 3/0 circle hook and enough weight to hold your bait in the same location so the scent has a chance to draw in the fish. When the fish eats the bait and swims away all you have to do is pick up the rod and start reeling. Check with a local bait shop to find out what baits work best for your area. You can use small minnows or shad for bait.
We are entering the best part of the fishing season when the fish are most active. Best of luck to both of you!
