Works better than real worms most of time ( Color - Scent). Great for Pan fish also. I like to wacky style with fine wire hook.

It's the perfect artificial bait to dead fish for trout. Floats ahead of the weight as advertised for sure. Wife never had trout chase the bait like that before. Already bought more.

I bought these and the Power Eggs because I saw people using them for trout fishing, but i was never successful with these nor the power eggs. I was curious so i stuck a #12 hook in a worm and a power egg and put them in a bucket of clear water. They both sank immediately!! Without the hook they float just fine. With the hook they immediately sink. Dont believe me?? Try it! I do however recommend the salmon eggs. Those float even with a #10 hook. Everytime i use those i catch my limit. No surprise now that i know those actually float! I suppose these would work under a bobber but thats about it.

I've only taken these out one time so far, but they sure did attract every living thing in the lake. That Gulp solution is something else.
I haven't landed anything on them yet (poor rigging on my part) but I got tons of nibbles, and am confident that I will catch larger fish with these worms. Rigged wacky style on light tackle, or drop shot with light weight, these are going to be irresistible.
The only complaint I have about these is the fact that they will not 'float' with any tackle heavier than a size 10 hook. I'm going to try rigging them with a buried egg hook and see how well that works on the smaller fish.
For larger stocked trout, or for large holdover fish, these are killing it at the lakes. But if you are going for average (or smaller) stocked trout, try the Gulp earth worms. Same attractant, more action, smaller diameter, easier rigging.

Ive used size 10 egg hooks (for salmon) and rigging them wacky really seemed to get brookies driven nuts. Its in the highest percentage area of where a fish is gonna grab this worm, and the wiggling of the worm is too seductive for trout, if fishing shallow water or moving water but you can see the bait, use no weight, otherwise use weight so you can feel fish pick up the bait. Best of luck.
Theres two favourite rigs that I use for the Powerbait version, wacky rigged (i prefer no weight) and jigworm (1/32 oz jighead rigged normally, not texas) and you should do well for trout, bass, and panfish. Ive caught brookies and rainbows on the weightless wacky rig, and landlocked salmon, rainbow trout perch, rock bass, smallmouth and largemouth on the jigworm. The brookie in the pic was caught on the wacky worm, went around 12" and caught under a small tree on a small Nova Scotian stream. Apparently the gulp stuff works even better than the powerbait, but ive caught up to 15 fish on a single powerbait worm (although im not to sure on how durable the gulp is). Best of luck fishing this worm.
