    I fish from a brand new fishing pier on Durrance Lake in Victoria, BC, Canada. Durrance is supposed to be the best rainbow trout fishing lake in the city, my buddy once said that he actually got bored of catching fish in his boat. I have yet to have that luck on the dock.

    Is there really that much difference between the Powerbait dough and eggs?

    Jetspray +1. It sez on the Gulp Label that it out fishes other baits by 55%. I can't argue with that. At places like ICR in late winter and early spring with little weeds an 8 inch leader is called for. Spring to summer depending on bottom up to 2 feet.

    BTW welcome to the Sniffer Logan.

    Thanks.

    Exactly how long is your leader? When I caught my only trout using off-the-bottom was when I used a FOUR FOOT LONG LEADER. Apparently it was effective, but almost impossible to cast. Now I use a 2ft-ish leader but I would love to hear what you use.
