Trout Dough Bait Recipe

Fishing Bait Spotlight: Trout Dough Bait Trout Dough Bait Trout really like soft dough baits. This dough bait recipe will entice even the most finicky of Lunker trout to bite your line. Works on all trout, but even more so for planter trout. If you are going to fish with a bobber you will want the bait to sink. You can do this by using a dough bait hook that has a spring in the center to weight it down, or you can skip the ingredients below that cause flotation. If you are going to fish with a sinker on the bottom, you will want the trout bait to float up from the bottom using the flotation ingredients below.

To do so, always keep the dough bait out of direct sun light for long periods of time, and keep it in a ziplock bag or tupperware type container with an air tight seal.
