Trout like cut bait too

Post by Mike Werner » February 8th, 2016, 10:01 pm

I ended up with a bunch of pretty big trout a while back and sadly didn't find the stripers to eat them "yet". Poor guys were getting pretty hungry and I had some small gizzards left over from a trip, so I cut them up in little pieces and fed them the cut shad. They appear to really like it. It is necessary to change the filter daily or so the first few days afterward, but it seems to be a good alternative if you find yourself in that situation.

Good use of the leftovers!
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

They will also eat Pond Food pellets from Publix.

Cold water piranha. When I was a kid the trout hatchery in PA handed out rabbit pellets, they'd eat right out of your hand in the pools. We'd throw pellets in the streams too and they'd frenzy on top to eat. But I feed mine the pond pellets too like Roland suggested.

Bathing companions.

Hey man, you have gotten to be so infamous that my co-workers, not striper fishermen or even fishermen, unprompted, show me videos of you and trout in let's say "compromised positions".

Great to hear from you. It's been too long. Look forward to talking to you at the get together.
