How to Fish a Trout Worm
There are many ways to fish trout worms. The most commonly used rigging method is simply using a split shot rig. Attach a split shot bb sinker, size 5 is standard, on and a light leader from 2-4lb fluorocarbon. Place the bb sinker anywhere from six inches to four feet from the hook. When selecting a hook smaller is always better - match the hook size to the bait. Oversized hooks will inhibit the action and cause the worm to sink to the bottom rendering the entire rig useless, as trout prefer to feed up in the water column. For the small Berkley Gulp Fat Floating trout worms an egg hook size 14 or 12 will be suitable. To fish the rig, just cast out and slowly retrieve the line, as slow as you can manage while intermittently twitching the rod subtly.
