Snelled Hooks

Why can I still not catch trout?

OK, Soooooo this is getting slightly ridiculous...Im going to tell you guys exactly what I'm using and the method.

The fish report says that powerbait, crawlers and power worms are working well so I have a Shimano field tec rod/reel combo using 4 lbs mono line. I usually either make a leader with about 1-1 1/2 feet with a barrel swivel attached or leave out the barrel swivel and attach a few split shot weights to it.

Yesterday I was using crawlers and would re-cast about every 20 minutes, I worked my way down the shore with my son and we walked the perimeter of the lake...we had NO LUCK!

Am i doing something wrong? Do I need to be waiting longer? What about a bullet weight...I'm thinking about using that with the swivel so the fish can't feel the line...any ideas would be very helpful guys...Please no sarcasm or "you suck at fishing"...thank you

yes it is stalked with tailwalkers...there are fish in the lake.

The simple fact is, sometimes the fish are hitting and sometimes they just aren't hitting. It's that way with any fish, and you will have good days and bad days...days when nothing seems to work, and other days when you limit out in just a short time... But, don't let the bad days discourage you... You just have to keep at it......... When using PowerBait for trout I like to use ultra-light spinning equipment, and a very small hook. Most people use "trout hooks", but I prefer the smallest cricket hooks. With their long shank they are simply easier to deal with, and are still small enough for trout. I "snell" the hook (add a leader of about 8 to 10 inches). I also use a tiny barrel or crane swivel with a snap, on the end of my line, with the snelled hook attached to the snap, and a small slip sinker above the swivel. Do not attach the sinker below the swivel or the bait will not float up off the bottom... If using the dough-type PowerBait I like a wad about a third the size of a marble or a bit smaller, completely covering the hook. If using the PowerBait eggs, I like to use two (I have had the best luck using two different colors)... The PowerBait will float up from the swivel and sinker several inches above the bottom. I don't use a bobber... I toss it out, let it settle to the bottom, then tighten the line just slightly, just enough to take out the slack, so that I can see if it moves, and when the line starts to move out, I set the hook... When setting the hook do so rather gently. Don't set it like with bass fishing or you will pull the hook out of the fish's mouth...... There are other ways to do it, but that is how my wife and I do it, and it works for us.............. Good Luck.
