    Re: How to Rig Powerbait Mice Tails

    You can also use powerbait instead of the egg or like was mentioned before a inflated crawler, just make sure they float before you cast out because even though the berkley worms float by themselves they can't take much weight and will sink with the weight of some hooks.
    Give a man a fish, he eats for one day, teach a man to fish and he takes all your fish!

    Here's a photo of it:



    The guy at the store said to slip a #6 hook through the egg and slide it up the shaft toward the eye of the hook, then stick a floating egg at the end of the hook and slide it down so that it doesn't cover up the sharp part of the hook.

    The other way would be to slip it on a hook and toss it with a float.



    Or would hooking it with a smaller hook and doing it like a carolina work, with a weight to keep it 18 inches off the bottom sound decent?

    I kinda want to put it on a scrounger and troll with it.
    I like to use a Aberdeen hook. Those hooks have a longer shank. From shore use a water bobber then about 5' of leader. Then put the egg and worm on just like your photo. with the Aberdeen hook the point will come out of the worm about half way down. No need to put an extra egg on the point. With the water bobber you can fish it many different ways; fill the bobber so it sinks, then you can cast and retrieve it at different depths or fish it on the bottom or you can fill the bobber 3/4 full so it will float and and cast and retrieve slowly on top or let it drift like a regular bobber. Great set up to start with cause you can find out quickly where the fish are located. There is another style that works, rigging is the same but use a trebble hook, put the worm on one of the hooks and then cover the trebble with Power bait.
