Features and Benefits: The Berkley trout bait comes in many color variations. Some of which arealready pre-molded into balls and others that need to be rolled into a bait ball. Overall it's very easy to
Review: I really like this bait, in fact I use it every year when I fish opening day of trout season and proud lake. What I've noticed is that it's a great bait that floats so you'll have to adjust how you rig it
How I Used: I've been using these baits over the last few years and have used multiple colors including white, pink, a mix of both and yellow. From what I've noticed the white and yellow colors work thebest as they are closer to the color of the pellets farmed and released trout eat in the hatchery. As far as wild trout all three colors worked well but egg colors work best particularly around the time of the salmon run.
I personally rig this bait two ways. One way is with an slip sinker rig using an egg sinker, barrel swivel and #8 egg hook. Adjusting the length of the leader so the hook will float into the fishes strike zone depending on where the fish are in the water column. (Image courtesy of fishingnoob)
The other way I use this bait for when I'm fishing in deeper stocked ponds or lakes. I use a kentucky rig where you tie a small bell sinker to the bottom of the main line with a snelled hook attached up the main line according to where the fish are suspended in the water column.
Pros: This bait really catches trout especially stocked trout. It's easy to use and store also it floats which makes it easy to present to waiting trout.
Cons: It can be messy smelly on your clothes and hands. But guess what? If you're fishing there is a fair chance you're not gonna be clean for long anyway.
