Trout Can See

Trout have great eyesight so you will want to change up the presentation of your bait and lures. This is a fancy way of saying hook your bait differently or try different setups. For example, you can hook a worm in the middle or through one end. This will change how the worm moves in the water. You can also use a 1 foot leader and a weight which will cause the worm to be suspended from the bottom. All of this changes how the bait is presented to the fish. Another thing to keep in mind is that stocked trout grew up on fish pellets in the hatchery. This is one of the reasons why PowerBait works so well since you can mold it to look like a hatcery pellet.
