Choosing the Right Trout Fishing Rod When fishing for trout there are two types of rigs that are used to catch trout. Gang hooks are spinners that are attached to a lightweight leader. The most common size rig is a swivel with split shot sinkers on the line directly behind the swivel. This enables the trout to grip the bait so that they won’t slip off. The second type of trout fishing rig is a casting bubble. A casting bubble is a small plastic bubble (similar in shape to a bobber) is tied to your line to add weight to your rig, effectively making a small artificial lure.
