Are you talking about the Trout Dough? I've used it with varying success. I prefer the solid pink and solid green colors, fished 12-14" below a 1/4" split shot. The dough floats so you need something to keep it on the bottom.

Something I've found which works better than the dough are the Extrude eggs (about $8.00 at Canadian Tire). My kids have sometimes outfished me using these when I'm on the fly.

Hope that helps.

Is it the same as "power bait" - stinky stuff you ball up and wrap on a bare hook?

The 3 inch power bait worms are awesome for trout fishing. I have been using them for years and have never been skunked. I find that the pink and red ones work best. Most days they put up big numbers. :thumbup:
That is soo true, those things work like magic. Im starting to pick up fly-fishing now though so..... Spin casting rods get left at home more and more ;)

I've gone fly only, so the only spinning rods belong to the kids now. They have 2 pkgs of the worms (pink & natural) but we've never tried them. Definitely going to give them a go when I get back from Hawaii.

Never really caught alot with power bait. Had better luck with just pllain old worms. Starting to try flies and like them pretty good. Right now just use a spinning outfit with a bobber and fly. Maybe one of these days I'll have to break down and get a fly-fishing outfit. I think I'll give those power bait wroms a try though. Sounds like they are pretty decent.

I tried the pink one several times but it looks like they do not work for salmon!

The bigger worms work great for steelhead. As for trout in lakes and that, I just use deli shrimp on the kids hook. The trout just love them. I use the previously frozen ones from save on or super store.
