Power Bait Fishing Rig

The power bait fishing method can work well for many different species of fish, however, this tailored set-up is purposefully designed to catch trout using Berkley PowerBait dough or other similar style bait. This Power Bait fishing set up is a proven method that has withstood the test of time. If you are an experienced fisherman chances are you have used this rigging for many different types of game fish.  You also know, if done properly, it will land you some of your most outstanding fish.  To build the power bait rig, just follow the instructions on the illustrated picture using the recommended terminal tackle, line and accessories mentioned here.   The key to this trout rig is disguising the bait during presentation with a smaller hook and line coming off the main fishing line.  The lighter leader and hook allows the bait to float with ease and makes the rig more difficult for the trout to see.  This helps you get more looks and bites.
