1, Pautzke Salmon Eggs

Pautzke has been in the fishing bait industry for more than seven decades. If you ask me, that’s a whole lot of years and they sure have achieved great success in this sector and they continue to do so. Well, you can argue with success because it only means that Pautzke has gained quality experience over years to know what the market needs, in what shape and style.

Their salmon eggs, for instance, are one of the best baits used by fishermen to catch trout today. And as many of them will tell you, the effectiveness of bait eggs strongly relies on their quality and cure. Pautzke, in this case, has both of these things worked out and their salmon eggs cater for these two just as you would like it.

As if that’s not enough, the eggs are also quite attractive from a visual perspective and it is all thanks to its shiny texture and perfect size that help make trout fishing a breeze.

Worried about the cost? Well don’t be since these Pautzke salmon eggs are quite inexpensive, keep fairly well and aren’t messy like most other power bait; and if this helps, they do have a pleasant smell.

2, Berkeley Power Bait Dough

Berkley also makes a bait they call the ‘power bait dough’ that is made available in a variety of colors and scents.

Due to the variety of scents and colors, anglers are often advised to buy different flavors since some flavors tend to fade in effectiveness over time. For instance, you might find that the same

color and flavor that worked the previous fishing season is not working this season. So keep this in mind the next time you order the Berkeley dough baits.

Besides being available in numerous varieties, the Berkeley power bait dough is floating, moldable, easy to use and is the perfect size to entice trout. It is also long-lasting and has the ability to absorb and hold additional scents.

A notable disadvantage of these power eggs is the fact that they are pricey, messy, and kind of have a less pleasing smell. Otherwise, it is one of the best power bait for trout that you can use today.
