Trout Fishing At Night With Powerbait

Published

on

If you are into trout fishing, and who isn’t, then chances are you know that there are all kinds of baits and lures that you can use. If you’re like me you have your favorites, Of course, there are many different types of live baits to use, and they practically run the gamut. (I know, Powerbait... Were getting there…) Options such as worms will always be an odds-on favorite simply because they are not only extremely popular with the fish, but they are also popular with the fishermen as well.

Simply put, worms are not that difficult to obtain. You literally can dig them up in your backyard if you need to! However, besides worms, many trout fishermen also love to go with waxworms, which are the larvae of bee moths. Trout will go for this simply because it is a nice change from the ordinary worm treat they are accustomed to. Of course, you also can go with crickets and grasshoppers, too. 

Of course, if natural baits aren’t your thing when you are out on the lake fishing for that trout, there are also plenty of made-up lures that you can go for as well. Of course, there are a couple good rules of thumb you should follow when it comes to lures. First of all, the best lures will imitate live bait. Second, the best lures are usually the ones with a flashy design and have plenty of action as well. However, the lures that are truly in a league all to themselves would be those that have the ability to remain still in the water.

What If There Was Another Way? 

Of course, talking about all of the different baits and lures that are available on the market today for trout still doesn’t address the elephant in the room for the novice trout fisherman: surely there is another way to fish for trout than just these two options, right? Well, the good news is that yes, there is another way, and in some respects it can be compared to the best of both worlds. Let me introduce you to Powerbait, and let me just say that this little concoction is about one of the best ways to catch trout that is on the market today. (I bet four out of five trout Ive caught at night was on Powerbait)

What is Powerbait? 

Powerbait is a unique bait that consists of a multi-colored concoction that also has a strong smell and can easily float in the water. Although it appears to be a playdough-like substance and it seems to be a very odd concoction indeed, it is surprisingly effective at catching fish.

Thus, it is very popular for catching trout. One of the main advantages of Powerbait is that it is made with a combination of PVC and an oil-based resin. Are you still turned off by the strong smell that Powerbait puts off? Well, you shouldn’t be, because while the smell might be off-putting to you, it is pure heaven to a trout and that is part of the reason why there are so many anglers who swear by this Powerbait.

The strong odors can often come in a variety of options, such as cod liver oil, tinned fish, fish eggs, worms, fish guts, insects, fish attractants, and many other smells as well. Moreover, you actually WANT the Powerbait to be smelly, because it will have a better chance of attracting the trout. To borrow an oft-used phrase: The smellier the better. 

The Other Question You Might Have… 

Interestingly enough, there is yet another, twin elephant in this room as well, and it can be best summed up in these questions: Can you use Powerbait at night? If so, how would you go about doing it? What would you have to keep in mind? Finding answers to these questions isn’t as difficult as you might think. 

Powerbait: A Great Night Time Bait! 

As you can tell from the title above, the great majority of this blog entry is going to be devoted to the benefits of using Powerbait at night. First of all, one of the main reasons why Powerbait is a good thing to use when fishing for trout at night is because it has a lot of bright colors and some have glitter.

Moreover, even though Powerbati is best for fishing for stocked Rainbows, it will often even be appealing to wild trout on regular streams or rivers. Part of the reason for Powerbait being so successful even at night would have to be because it appeals to all of the characteristics of the trout. Here are some things to keep in mind: 


Color is important. 

When you are night fishing for trout, it is important that you have the right color scheme. In most cases, the Powerbait you can buy will come in a variety of different colors to help you in this endeavor.

For example, the manufacturer of Powerbait is known as Berkley, and they have a wide array of colors that you can choose from. First of all, they have the main colors of black and blue, which are solid darker colors that will often mesh well with the night fishing environment. However, interestingly enough they also have many different colors that you may have not even heard of. 

Colors such as Blue Pumpkin, California, Green Pumpkin (in varieties such as blue and red green), June Bug, Okochobee Craw, Pearl White Silver Fleck, Perfection and many, many others are available for you to try out. Of course, many trout night fishermen will tell you to go with the tried-and-true colors, and there is some credence to this.

Fishing trout with worms? Read this article.

However, there are some nights where the trout just aren’t biting, and there is nothing wrong with trying out a new color. You just never know what the trout might be seeing, and you just never know how the night shadows might play on the Powerbait color that you are trying out. You never know; it just might be the perfect ticket for landing that elusive trout on your next night time junket! 

Are you seriously looking turn your hobby into a business? I recommend joining Income School. I’ve been an Income School member for a little over a year and joining was the best decision I’ve made in working toward my business goal of making money online.

The Science Behind Powerbait Color (Or, Just What Is It That a Fish Sees, Anyway?) 

Of course, the other wrinkle to all of this is this rhetorical question: just why is Powerbait color important anyway? Again, part of the reason why we want a variety of colors is because we want to mimic what the trout will see in their natural environment anyway. If we exploit their natural prey, we will usually be in good shape.

However, there is also no way to avoid a science lesson here, either. We have to understand, at least in part, what it is that a fish might see in order to pick the best color. I don’t know if you noticed in the Berkley paragraph, but a lot of the examples that were listed were darker colors. Well, there’s a method to this madness.

You see, when you cast your Powerbait out into the water on your next night fishing junket, one of the reason why darker colors are preferred has a lot to do with the depth of the water and the fact that the further down you go, the less natural light will be present. Although it doesn’t seem to make much sense to use darker colors for your Powerbait, part of the reason for this is because your trout make a tremendous use of the silhouette that your bait will put off in the darkness.

Considering that this is the time that many trout species come out to feed anyway, it definitely makes sense to make your Powerbait as appealing as possible to them. 

Of course, you have to remember that the color of your Powerbait is almost always going to look different in the depths of the water than it will be when you cast it out on the air.

You have to take into account the characteristics of the already-limited light in the water. You also have to take into account that we as human beings can usually only see such colors as what are already present within the visible spectrum. However, fish can often see colors that we humans cannot.

Whenever you are looking at a prospective Powerbait to add to your bait collection, you always need to think about what it might look like to a fish. Moreover, in that same vein, there are many Powerbait colors that are highly preferred among anglers. Consider the following: 

Hey FISHMONGER – make sure to check out my FISHING RESOURCES page.

Chartreuse is one of the most preferred colors for trout anglers doing their sport at night. 

Chartreuse is a good color scheme to use simply because it will work well almost under any light combination. It also happens to bemy favorite and don’t forget to get it with glitter. Moreover, some night anglers swear by it because chartreuse will work well in deep waters where it will naturally gets very dark.

Of course, all we have to do here is just put two and two together, and we quickly realize that chartreuse would also work well for all of your night fishing endeavors as well. Of course, if this is your first time even hearing about the color scheme we all know and love called “Chartreuse”, don’t feel bad. The best way to describe this color is that it is yellowish green, and kind of resembles a lemon-like color. Or you could describe it as Neon Green lol.

Besides night time fishing, many anglers swear by this Powerbait color when the water they’re fishing in is either muddy or stained. 

Rainbow Powerbait was also a favorite among trout night anglers. 

There are a lot of anglers who like the Rainbow option of Powerbait. Part of the reason for this is because this color does well when you are night fishing for trout in a stocked situation. However, the Rainbow color does have its disadvantages.

For one thing, many anglers have reported that Rainbow Powerbait doesn’t seem to do as well in a more natural, non-stocked environment. Moreover, if you are looking to catch adult trout, you might want to consider going with a different Powerbait; the younger trout seem to respond better to the Rainbow option over the adults. 

Pink Powerbait was yet another favorite. 

Finally, many night anglers also preferred pink for their Powerbait choice. Apparently, this is through word-of-mouth, simply because a lot of night trout anglers have tried the pink version just through the trial-and-error process and been able to catch a lot of trout. 

Powerbait: Like Everything Else in Life, There Is No “Magic Bullet”

When it comes to trying to catch some trout at night with your Powerbait, there is no question that there are all kinds of colors that you could try. Although some anglers report success with black because of that “silhouette” effect, still some other anglers love that chartreuse or rainbow color.

The problem with night fishing with Powerbait is that you are liable to get ten different opinions if you ask ten different anglers. However, if there is one thing they can agree on, it would be the fact that if anything at all will attract the fish to the Powerbait, it would be that strong smell that the stuff puts out!

Thus, there is no question that trout will be attracted to this stuff, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s night or day either. So, if you are night fishing for trout and just aren’t having any luck, besides blaming the Powerbait, here are some other things you can try: 

Add some artificial stuff to it. 

If you are night fishing, then you are definitely dealing with low light conditions. Thus, one of the things you need to do would be to consider adding some artificial items to your Powerbait.

This isn’t just to entertain that inner decorative touch of yours, but it is actually to reflect more polarized light and potentially give you better luck at attracting those night time trout. See if adding some tinsel or glitter to your Powerbait doesn’t help you out. 

Is it possible that you aren’t being patient? 

Yeah, yeah, I know, this is going to step on some toes, but fishing with Powerbait can be a bit of a longer process. You not only have to keep a lower profile, but you also have to cast out the Powerbait and let it sit for a decent amount of time.

This is because the strong fish-attracting smell needs time to permeate throughout the water. Of course, the same regular fishing rules apply as well. Make sure you don’t do anything that might spook the trout. 

Don’t be afraid to try other areas of the lake. 

The other possibility is that you just aren’t in the right part of the lake or waterway. There is nothing wrong with trying another part of it and see if you have more luck. 

Either way, there is a strong possibility that you will catch night time trout by using Powerbait. As always, you get out what you put in. Don’t be afraid to research new techniques, and don’t be afraid to learn from others.

Fishing Willow Beach – Catch Fish Near Las Vegas

Can You Fish at Willow Beach?

Willow Beach is a long-time classic fishing destination. It’s a part of Lake Mohave on the Colorado River. The black rock canyons are just below Hoover dam and are part of Lake Mead National Park. Its Cold waters are on the north of Lake Mohave.

I’m going to share stuff here that you won’t find anywhere else.

Back in the day, they used to catch huge
rainbow trout out of that little beach. I remember when I was a kid they had a café in by where the
store is. Other Species we caught were Carp, Catfish, and Bass.

Inside the café, we used to go there to eat breakfast in the mornings before we went
fishing or we would go fishing early and come to the café after a couple of hours of fishing.
Inside the café.

The walls were lined with hundreds of pictures of anglers with their catch. These
were all rainbow trout at the time and you had to have a trout over 5 pounds to get on the wall.

There were also taxidermy trout on the walls along with other wildlife that you can find in the
area. If I remember right there was a bighorn ram mount at the front entrance.

Later on, as I grew up in the 80s and 90s the decor changed a little bit. The trout pictures were still on the wall
but the trophy at the front of the store was in a case and it changed to a striped bass.

Around this time striped bass got out of Lake Mead into the river system. They had a heyday eating up
trout.

Because of that, they grew to enormous sizes. I can’t remember exactly but I seem to
recall a striped bass in the display case that was over 60 pounds if I remember right.

This place is the iconic big fish travel destination. There have been people coming here for decades to
catch big fish whether they be trout or striped bass.

I took a 100 person survey on facebook if people like bass fishing best or trout fishing best. Here’s the results.

Can You Swim at willow beach?

There is no swimming allowed at the marina but if you go outside the buoys you can swim. You should be warned that the water is ice cold year around though.


Do I need an Arizona fishing license to fish at Willow Beach?

There is a lot of confusion unless you already know about whether you need a license to fish at
Willow Beach or not.

First of all yes you do need a license to fish at Willow Beach. However, if
you have a Nevada license that will work as well.

It doesn’t matter if you are on a boat or on
the shore as long as you have a Nevada or an Arizona license you are good to go.

Do I need a stamp for Arizona or Nevada at Willow Beach?

The answer is
no. Some time ago they did away with the stamps. Now when you buy the license it is included
with the license if you get it in Nevada or Arizona does not matter.

Do I need a trout stamp at Willow Beach?

Again the answer is no. Back in the day you
used to have to buy a trout stamp but nowadays that is included with the license as well no
matter which state you come from Arizona or Nevada.

Do I need a stamp for a second pole at Willow Beach?

Once again the answer to that is no. It is
included with the license and you can have up to two poles but a maximum number of three hooks
between the two poles.

So I usually fish one pole with one hook in the other pole with two
hooks.
At the end of this article, I will give you a willow beach fishing Report for 2021


Can I catch striped bass at Willow Beach?

The answer is absolutely yes you can.

What are the
recommendations for catching striped bass?

Well you can do it similar to the way you do it in
Lake Mead- bait fishing with anchovies that are frozen.

Cut them in thirds and put them
on a standard worm hook. Use about 1 ounce of weight and toss them out there about as far as
you can get them.

If you are on a boat you can do the same thing or you can go upstream a ways and float down slowly with an anchovy on the hook slightly above the bottom.

Another
recommended way to catch striped bass is using baits that mimic baitfish. Either a lure that
mimics a shad or one that mimics a trout or even bluegill.

These are terrific to use because
the bass and the striped bass love to eat these smaller fish, especially trout.

In case you did not know trout are stocked at Willow Beach every Friday. When this happens it’s like buffet time for
the striped bass. This would be a good time to throw out a swim bait that looks like a trout.

last but not least you can use live bait which you can get from my buddy mike wigglerarmy.com

Can I catch trout at Willow Beach?

Again the answer to this is an astounding yes.

How do you catch trout at Willow Beach? I would suggest the old standby Berkeley power bait and fish
somewhere around the picnic area by the store or the fishing pier over by the hatchery.

Probably the best place to catch trout. Anywhere in between that is able to be official legally is
good as well. If you have a boat or kayak you can go up or downstream and fish The coves. The
trout like to hang out in there as well and you can catch some real big trout at Willow Beach.

Both of my sons have caught 5-pound trout there. In case you were wondering yes this was
recently it was 2020.

My son Lorin at Willow Beach – This Rainbow Trout was caught on a Berkley Mousetail

I know the best do you eat the trout but the hatchery also put out some
very large ones for the anglers to catch. You can also use lures like spinners for trout and even
jerk baits that are semi-small.

Another popular soft bait or mouse tails made by Berkley. Also,
regular old nightcrawlers are a great option. You can get them from my friend mike
wigglerarmy.com

Marshmallows are a good bait for trout as well. Some people use the garlic-flavored ones made
specifically for fishing but the little colorful marshmallows that you put in your hot cocoa do a
nice job too. (the garlic flavored ones give me bad breath)

Lastly, a super very good option is wax worms or mealworms that you can get at
the store at Willow Beach. Keep in mind Arizona time is different than Nevada time most of the
year and the store closes fairly early.

What are some Willow Beach fishing tips?

The first tip I would give you is to try to fish in the off
hours to beat the crowds.

A lot of people go down to Willow Beach If you try to go during a holiday weekend you are
going to fight for elbow room. I would say if you go in the morning during the week that would be
a terrific time.

It doesn’t matter if you are going just to kayak or if you are fishing, the middle of
the week is a good time.

Late in the evening is also a good time. Only the most diehard
fisherman are out there after about 10 PM so getting a spot is not so hard except maybe on the
weekends. They do have a very nice fishing pier at Willow Beach and it’s quite large but in the
late summer, there’s a lot of grass around the pier so it’s kind of difficult to fish.

If you are going to fish the pier in the late summer you are going to want some sort of gear that you can cast out
very far. This will get you out past the grass and give you a better chance of getting a striper.

Mouse tails and wax worms seem to do the best on trout if you can see them. Plop one of these
baits in front of them and you can usually get their attention with it especially the wax worms
and regular worms.

The best piece of advice I can give you if you want to catch trout is to go
there on Friday morning. Prepare for heavy traffic along the shore because a lot of people know
that the department of wildlife stocks Willow Beach at the ramp on Friday mornings at about eight.

Watch out for the no fishing signs. You need to stay in the designated fishing areas which are a
little ways away from the docs. If you are fishing for striped bass this is a good time too.
Because the stripers come in to eat the trout. Putting something out there that looks like a trout
is a good bet during this time.

Willow Beach trout stocking schedule 2021

All I can tell you is that they stock Willow Beach at about 8:00 AM every Friday morning. There
are occasions when that schedule is changed for example during Covid lockdowns they did not
stock for quite a long time.

There may be other reasons why they don’t stock for example if it is
a holiday. Other than that they are pretty regular about it.

Fishing at Lorenzi Park Las Vegas Aka. Twin Lakes

Published

on

When I was a kid there was one thing that you could count on that was always on my mind and that was fishing. 

Of course when you’re a kid you only have what you have and that is not much when it comes to fishing gear.

Get live Striper and bass bait HERE

Of course, I had a fishing pole but I must have gotten for Christmas or my birthday and I had a tackle box with a few things in it.

Your run-of-the-mill bass curly tail jigs, a couple of flies for trout, a handful of bobbers. 

Get A Free FishinMoney Sticker HERE

And a few other odds and ends like some 6 pound fishing string. And assortment of hooks mostly for trout.

When my friends and I got lucky enough to get dropped off at Lorenzi Park to do some fishing we had a blast together.

I don’t recall who all was there but I remember that my friend Shane and I quickly learned that the fish in the pond at that time were so small that you needed a Hook that could fit in their mouth and we do not have any that small.

As I recall I took a small treble hook and type two hooks off of it to make one single hook that was small enough to try to catch some bluegill.

It took us most of the day to figure all of this out and get our gear ready to actually catch a fish but in the end, we did not give up and we were able to catch bluegill that day.

I don’t go back there anymore, at least I have not been there for many years because in my opinion there are other places that are better for fishing.

The neighborhood is a little tough and although in the daytime it’s fine I would not want to be out there too much at night.

I prefer places like cold Creek, veterans memorial pond in Boulder city, and even Sunset Park.

But I know there are a lot of people who for one reason or another are going to Lorenzi Park and they want to know where to fish when they get there.

Where should I fish at Lorenzi Park?

I can tell you exactly where I always had the best of work and I can also tell you where would be a good place now to finish when you get there.

 Around the center of the pond between the two lakes, there is a bridge. Near the bridge, you will see a blue roof picnic area. Next to that, you’ll find some steps that lead down to the water and an overlook with a rail around it that’s where you want to go. Just remember it’s near the center bridge that crosses the two lakes find the steps near the bigger lake and it’s right there. I’m going to include a picture of the place that I’m talking about and you will quickly see you once you see the picture of why I recommend this place.

This is the place where I was able to catch bluegill when I was a kid. 

What bait should I use at Lorenzi Park?

We used Webber’s white bread. 

Yeah, no joke we just rolled it up into a tight ball and put it on our hook. Every time we cast and we were able to get lots of bites.

The problem with using this type of meat is that as soon as he gets wet it starts to get loose and it’s not too long before it comes off your hook.

It’s really easy for the fish to steal your bait. But it’s cheap and his kids that was what made the most sense to us I guess.

Nowadays if I were to go there I would probably bring some Berkeley power bait. You can make small little balls of bait for fishing and it would be much harder to get it to come off of your hook.

How do I fish for trout at Lorenzi Park?

However, if you are going to fish at Lorenzi Park during the fall and spring before it gets too hot. I would still recommend the same exact spot for fishing however you might be fishing for a different species.

That pond is now stocked with rainbow trout. Back when I was a kid it was not but now it is and also during the hot summer months it is stocked with catfish.

If you are fishing there any time between November and March you can rest assured that there are rainbow trout in there and in that case I would go with a very small treble hook maybe a size 14 and Berkeley power bait for trout fishing.

How do I fish for catfish at Lorenzi Park in Las Vegas?

If you go there during the summer months or hotter months, I would recommend using a small warm hook and you could try using nightcrawlers or anchovies.

You will need to know where you can get nightcrawlers and anchovies so I am going to tell you here.

The best place to go for that is the Walmart sports section. They have a refrigerator and a freezer where they keep both nightcrawlers and anchovies.

However, I am going to give you my best tip of this article. If you are fishing for catfish in the warm months, go to the grocery store and buy some small shrimp. Put that on your hook and you will knock out those catfish.

There you go don’t say I never gave you nothing… LOL

Make sure you go to the front page of my website and request a sticker for free. That way you can tell people who gave you the best fishing tips for Lorenzi Park in Las Vegas

The Best Trout Fishing YouTube Channels

Published

on

alt_text

In the year 2020 there is no question that we are definitely in the information age. You can learn about practically anything that you want, and there are countless platforms to do so. One of the most well-known ones would have to be YouTube.

There is an immense amount of videos available to help people learn about a given craft or skill. Take fishing, for example. There are fishing channels devoted to every type of fishing imaginable, from fishing for crappie to fishing for catfish and everything in between.

Malechi Brooks

Indeed, there are so many that it can be difficult to figure out which ones are good and which ones are not so good. However, when it comes to fishing for trout, there are quite a few examples out there.

Are you looking for some really good YouTube trout fishing channels? Of course, before we get started, you probably should realize that most of the suggested channels are not devoted to just trout fishing, but many of the techniques are easily adapted to fishing for this particular breed. Here are some that you should strongly consider:

By The Way have you ever used a worm pump? It’s my secret sauce and you can pick one up cheap at Amazon Here.

Salt Strong

Versatility is the name of the game for the Salt Strong YouTube Channel. They have videos devoted to almost every species of fish, including bass, catfish, and even such obscure options as snook and grouper. However, one of the reasons why they were included in the trout fishing category would have to be because they have plenty of good (and recent) trout-related fishing videos available.

They have posted at least 15 different trout or trout-related videos. Moreover, one of the things that makes this group unique would be that they aren’t just a collection of videos, but they also market themselves as an online community where other fishermen can bounce other ideas off each other and where they can even take different courses about how to fish for different breeds!

Yet another notable video they offer would be entitled, “3 Tips For Fishing Points” where it discusses some of the things you can do to catch more snook, redfish, and trout. A couple of these would include going with the flow and to avoid doubting the drop-offs. Of course, it is important to mention that when we say “points”, we are talking about a designation in place and not simply an element of conversation.

Moreover, one of the best things about this video would have to be that they are excellent at providing strategies for helping you to improve your fishing game. Ask any angler, and they will tell you that they enjoy the experience much better if they are catching fish. There’s just something about getting results from your hobby that makes it that much more enjoyable, and that’s probably why this channel regularly gets views in the tens of thousands for many of their recent videos and views in the millions for their oldest videos.

Addicted Fishing

Again, versatility is the name of the game for this fishing channel. One of the best things about Addicted Fishing would be that they provide a number of in-depth “How To” tutorials regarding how to catch all of your favorite fish. For example, they posted a video where they discussed fishing with “plastic pink worms” as a way to catch more trout.

That video was posted about seven months ago, and it already has over 258,000 views. And don’t think for a minute that that video is the only one that has had that many views. Addicted to Fishing also has a video detailing the “TOP 3 Methods For SUCCESS!” when fishing for trout that has had about 236,000 views as well.

Moreover, Addicted Fishing has a lot of unique listings for you to ponder. They have videos with titles such as “How to Catch Trout With Jet Puff Marshmallows” (197,000 views), “Using Trout Magnets For a Stocked Lake”(148,000 views), and “The Best Methods For Catching Trout in Rivers, Streams, and Creeks.” When it comes to YouTube channels that offer good trout-fishing videos, my point is this: Addicted Fishing is definitely a keeper.

Hey FISHMONGER – make sure to check out my FISHING RESOURCES page.

Fishin Money

Fishin Money might be a bit of a new kid on the block, but some of the insights they provide are every bit as useful to the trout fisherman as some of these larger channels. Moreover, you definitely should consider the fact that even though they have only been posting videos since last January, they are already up to 102 subscribers.

Perhaps one of the most compelling videos they have in their offerings would have to be the one posted in early July regarding fishing weights. Perhaps it’s due to COVID-19, but many fishermen are starting to notice that fishing weights are getting to be in short supply in such places as Bass Pro Shops and other fishing retailers. However, ask any experienced retailer, and they will tell you that weights is almost a necessity if you are going to start targeting a specific breed of fish.

Trout and other breeds will almost always stay at a certain depth, and the weights will help your bait sink to the required level. However, before I digress too much, this angler did notice the dilemma of these major fishing retailers no longer carrying weights. Indeed, some were completely out of them! So what did he do? He made his own! That’s right, and part of the reason why this YouTube channel has so much potential would have to be because it offers several practical life hacks for helping all anglers catch more of their favorite species, trout or otherwise.

Another good thing that this channel is that it often will combine elements of sports, psychology (RE: the overcoming negative fishing thoughts video), and even an analysis of different fishing locations. This is truly a fishing channel that has a lot of potential and should have a bright future, so you definitely should tune in regularly in order to get some solid angling tips.

All three of these videos illustrate the fact that fishing is so much more than just a sport. Fishing can definitely be a way of life, and it absolutely can bring families together. Lifelong friendships are made out on the water, along with many new ways of strategizing for the fish. There is no question that fishing is a great way to deal with life, and an excellent way to learn new things about yourself.
