These Catch Fish Every Time
Drifting these under a float can be the key to catching rainbows and steelhead. On a recent trip to some Lake Erie tribs in early October, I tried spoons and spinners with no luck. I caught a few throwing cranks but when I started using the pink worm they started biting! Be careful though. The bite can be so soft it can feel like you've slowly hooked the bottom. A number of times I thought I had snagged a rock but those were actually fish that had taken the worm very softly.
Power worms for steelhead
Bubble gum color excellent for spring steelhead and I use float fishing with # 6 Gamakatsu Octopus Hooks.
Always carry them
Great bait in lots of productive colors.... bubble gum, natural and florescent red seems to always work. Drift off bottom with small split shot for best success.
What's more to say
by River Brown
What more can be said that the others have not stated. These worms work. I catch hundreds of trout each year, and the majority of them come on either these worms, or yellow PowerBait eggs (garlic). If you add a bit of scent, such as Pro-Cure, the catch rate increases. For native trout, I always add a scent. Stock trout will bite anything, so no scent needed. Red/natural/pumpkin/cheese on bright days, bright colors on dark days. The reason I like these worms for stockers, is that they last a few fish before being torn up. I rig these worms on a #10 EC Aberdeen, or a #12 Owner Mosquito. Keep in mind that these worms are only semi-buoyant, so a light hook is needed to keep them off of the bottom, which is why I prefer the Owner #12. I nose hook the worm with the Owner, and T-rig with the Aberdeen hooks. Leader length depends on the water column the fish are hanging in. Begin by using a 2' leader, and work up if needed. Everything you need to fish these worms can be found at FishUSA.
I wasted minnows because of these bad boys
I haven't even had a chance to float these worms with a jig head yet, but I'm assuming it will do well. I threw a couple of split shots with a size 10 hook on my rod, Texas-rigged a cheese worm, and figured I'd cast out while setting up a float rig on my other rod. I never even touched the second rod before limiting out for the day. Great bait to fish from the bottom with, and I haven't had a bad day this season since buying these worms.
