    i posted this in the bait forum but i didnt get but one response so ill try it here.Has anyone used this dough bait and how did it work for you?And can you use it like punch bait or do you have to pick up some with your hand and put it on your hook?Ive never used this stuff before,you can get it at wal-mart and it comes in a small white container if you dont know what im talking about.I would really appreciate some feed back if possible.

    I have fished with people who have used that for bait. None of them had much luck with it. More of a mess that anything.

    It is a good bait when the water is warmer than it is now.I have used the ones that come preformed.The preformed bait is easy to use and don't stink up your hands as bad as the dip type.But either works OK after the water warms up.Biggest problem when using it on a trotline is when one fish gets on he can easily shake several pieces off down the line.

    I would say yes you could use spring treble, the reson to wait for the water to warm is because when the water is warm the smell tends to drift better, its better to use the bait in warm, smaller holes of water that way the smell covers more of the water. IE: ponds, small streams, mud puddles.... :)
