    i myself use zekes , and some other brands . i use alot of the cheap stuff for some odd reason it just " has a ranker smell " plus the price ,power bait and some others man the price it's unbelievable for a " lil jar " of that stuff. i just don't buy it that much.

    I grew up using Zekes, I still like it, however I like that nitro bait or should say that the trout like it. Thanks

    Those small marshmellows work great. I guess trout have a sweet tooth or just like that white blob floating around imitating a egg sack. Post your opinions everyone.

    Seirra Gold is the stuff to have. I think they are out of california. If I get my hands on it, its what I use

    i likie the zeke's and the powerbait, but the braum's buttermilk biscuit dough has been outperfoming them all 10 to 1. i started using it a couple years ago and never looked back. i catch 5-600 trout a year so i guess i am doing it right.

    i found a jar of those mellows , they are called "MIKE'S" glow mellows
    some glow others have different sent. garlic,cheese, etc some good stuff when ya want to try combos ,and keep your bait off the bottom . i find the smeller one's work good for channels .

    To me that sounds like canned bisquit dough. I guess just use a small piece enough to cover a hook. I've used it for Carp before and never thought using it for trout.
