Would like to take the granddaughters to the local fish Derby Saturday but have to work. Plan B would be Sunday morning....would like to see them catch something.... anyone have a secret bait for Derby Day holdovers?....any help is appreciated.
If it were me I'd use a floating Power Bait. Rig the hook on the end of the line and a split shot about 12 to 18 inches up the line. Cast it out and let it sit. Hopefully any trout cruising around will garb it and take off.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
Use some different from what they already seen from the prior day. Red worms are a good choice as not many people use them now days. Whole kernal yellow corn is a good choice too. Size 10 hooks and split shot placed 8 or 9 inches above hook.
If it is in a pond power bait in a different than norm color that most use. White or as another suggested the garlic flavored.
