Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 19
Rated 5 out of 5 by urbanfarmer Excellent for Freshly Stocked Trout
Went through the reviews & have some pointers for folks. Works best weighted down, 4lb flouro line, on a bobber, with a small treble hook. I think I use No. 10 eagle claw razor sharp trebles. The faux pellet completely covers the hook. Like many mentioned before, most effective on trout that have just been stocked, not so much once they become acclimated to their environment & start hunting for their feed. I have it in my tackle box, once the lakes I fish at get stocked with trout, & it works great if I get out there a couple of days after the stocking. I typically catch 1 trout per pellet that I cast, although it will melt away after a several casts. I simply add some trout chartreuse powerbait to the pellet & am good to go. I take my kids with me, and I usually bait their hooks with this stuff, and try out different baits on mine. They for the most part out fish me & have better hook sets than I do on other baits. It seems like the freshly stocked trout try to swallow it down right away, because they always get deep hooks. It's one of the drawbacks, you can't really throw back a fish if it try's to swallow the bait because the treble hook causes to much internal damage once removed. Over here we don't have a size limit, but something to consider if you do have a size limit where you fish.
