    I have a few on the hansen lures Jase.

    http://www.lureshop.eu/seatrout/hansen.html

    Hansen pilgrim ( silver and red and silver and blue ) and hansen stripper ( white one)

    I would say not to go too big - 10 gram size.

    I am sure there will be some variation for your local area but generally Sandeel type patterns should work.

    I would be inclined to agree with Kevin. Most of the Hansen lures are ideal for sea trout. If I was to pick a favourite, it would be the blue/silver Pilgrim. Some other manufacturers make similar silda type lures which will work too. Also worth looking at the Westin inline lures, such as the D360 and Sommet, although you'd probably have to purchase from Denmark or Sweden

    As Kevin says the Hansen pilgrim ( silver/red and silver/blue ) the hansen stripper ( white one) 10g to 15g size.

    Small Abu krill or toby metals.

    Colour of metal/lure is all dependant on the sea colour, the sky colour, day or night & baitfish that are in season.

    Don't underestimate black, orange & red as colours for lures.

    Pink/White is a good colour combo but the classic is of course Blue/Silver. Hansen lures are great also worth looking at LRF metal jigs ... in and around 5 - 7g. Anything small, slim is usually a good bet.

    I have also had sea trout on soft lures such as the FBM 70mm and some other small shrimp patterns.

    They can be very fussy eaters but really good sport due to the challenge of catching and keeping them on the line ... double split rings is usually a good idea. Also found singles produce a better hook hold.

    Call me old fashioned,but...I had two in two casts yesterday evening on a size 3 Mepps Aglia long.You do not need to spend loads on modern lures.....although I suppose I do that anyone! Whatever you use think about depth and speed....good luck!

    Ragworm of all types are on the sea trout menu all year around.

    So there is no reason why a natural or any artificial ragworm won't work 365 days a year. Be that Isome, Gulp or a fly pattern.

    The same goes for shrimps, prawns, beach hoppers etc.

    In the summer months I often see big sea trout in the shallows, upended, head down grubbing around & their tail out of the water. I guess sucking food items out of the sand.
