Migrating from just plain power bait and nightcrawlers and trying out the hype behind the PW/PE combos for trout. Can you guys provide a picture of your setup? hook size? worm size? etc. that related to PW/PE combos. Thank you all in advance.

Cheers!

the setup I use is 1/2 oz or 3/4 oz sliding sinker, then tie on a swivel attach a 2 to 3 foot leader tie on a sz 8 0r 10 mosquito owner hook , put the power worm first wacky style then the power egg spray some garlic and ur ready to catchem. oh yah when u have your pole on the pole holder put a wieghted bobber on the line between the 4th and 5th guides and let it hang about 2 ft. it helps you know when your getting a bite and when the fish is taking line it won't feel any pressure, sorry no pics but next time im out ill take one

Thanks for the reply, what do you mean by "wacky style"? Also, does it matter which goes on hook first PE, then PW or PW, then PE?

it means hooking it thro the middle of the worm is a bass fishing kind of thing

Wacky style is Running the hook through the middle of the worm so both ends are free to move rather than threading it up the hook and line. I put a egg on then wacky the worm and then another egg.

Here are some pictures of the way I rig the wacky PW, PE combo on a single salmon egg hook. Some times we will also rig with a treble hook. Either way seems to work just fine.
Hope it helps.368636853687

And yes, I do usually make the leader a little longer!

I was wondering what wacky style meant too.

Another question, I know that a white PW and green PE a popular combination is. Are the green power eggs the lemon/lime ones? Those the greenest I could find.

With your set up dont you tend to lose alot of fish due to the fact that the egg is in the way of the hook? Not allowing you to set the hook.

Nope, not a problem missing fish. If anything, they tend to swallow the whole setup. the eggs are very soft and do not interfere with the hook. This is not a rig for catch & release.
