    Re: Powerbait or Gulp trout bait?


    I think CC,s trick is he fishes more than most of us and that greatly increases his odds ?

    LOL. When I retire, I'm gonna be like C. C. :D Green with envy!

    Re: Powerbait or Gulp trout bait?

    I tried them out side by side on several occasions. Gulp and regular power bait. Gulp didn't make any difference for the price or extra scent difference. Regular power bait won every time. This was on different lakes. Scientific study, nope. But that was my end result. They both work, but regular power bait won every time. By the way, I used the same colors, just to make sure everything was as similiar as possible. Even to the point if when spot caught fish, I would cast the other dough bait to the approximate spot. Regular power bait still got more of the action. Last note, regular power bait and your favorite Pro Cure scent is awesome. Just my own non scientific studies.

    If it does not want to float better I just increase the wad size of the ball of dough. If that does not work add marshmellows to the setup. I have blow up worms with an injector before but do not rely on that now.....Jetspray

    Re: Powerbait or Gulp trout bait?

    It's just like trolling lures. They are quite a few tried and true brands, colors shapes, but what works one day might not work the next. Same water, same fish, location. If this wasn't the case, fishing would be too easy and the thrill from figuring it out would be gone.

    Personally, if I'm banking it with a typical s. sinker rig, if it floats well, it will work. I've noticed that the bouyancy factor of different brands or even types of dough ("double stregth super glitter PB" vs reg PB) can vary dramatically. Just barely covering the hook with one dough may float very easily while another dough may need twice as much to float the hook. Always double check bouyancy before casting out each reset/re-bait.

    There are advantages and dis-advantages to the eggs. They tend to be rubbery so they stick better to the hook, however they do not dissipate scent as well as the doughs. I like both and use both.....Jetspray
