    Those video's are great, right now the fish over here are looking for food on the bottom. So a short leader on a sliding sinker is working best right now. Those fish feed head down in the weeds/moss that lives through the winter above. The two that I caught last week were hooked on the corner of the jaw, this indicated to me that they were munching on the Gulp and my small treble was imbedded in the corner of the mouth. The hook is only about 18 inches away from the barrel swivel, that puts the bait right in front of the fishe's face and smell/taste senses.......Jetspray

    Open bail reel, good rods, sliding sinker set up (main line, barrel type sliding sinker, small bead, swivel only, leader to hook short (fish eat close to bottom), hook treble no larger than size 14 to hold dough, Gulp Berkley Power bait Chunky Chartreuse and Orange pulp colors about the size of a dime or smaller in a ball. I know that Gulp is more expensive in cost but it has more scent (55% more). It was what I used on the 28th of Feb. on Topaz Lake to catch a almost 6 lb trout with a $100 tag on it........Jetspray
