Rapala offers floating, sinking, articulated (jointed) as well as saltwater lures. For browns try sinking in the Perch, Rainbow and Silver patterns with a fast retrieve in lakes, slower on rivers. The jointed model seems to work on Browns on rivers.
I like the DT-7 Tail Dancer in yellow bellied with an orange top for browns.
Never had any luck with powerbait on Browns.
Not much experience with browns but brookies will hit power bait but they seem to be more inclined toward something meatier like nightcrawlers.
Powerbait is designed to target what they feed fish in hatcheries. Stocked trout will be more inclined to hit powerbait because I guess it reminds them of their "childhood". But it tastes good to all trout, because rainbows are the #1 stocked trout when fishing for rainbows powerbait is productive, but when it comes to bait I always prefer a juicy worm like 007. I don't bait too much for brookies because I find they are too tempted by spinners.
Perch, silver and gold models in a count down for trout of all types.
