Just a heads up in Ca you can fish with up to three hooks. They consider a trebel hook to be three hooks. You can only use more than one treble hook on a lure. I trout fish with #8 bait holder hooks I need the power bait with my fingers then press in on covering the whole hook leaving no cracks or voids. Before i cast in my line in i put the power bait in the water for a few minutes it makes the bait stay on the hook better and i can see if the power bait is floating. I re bait every 20 minutes to half hour to keep the sent fresh. If you reel in real fast it well wash the power bait off as you real in.
It good to hear you are doing good at the ducts. I know the spot you are fishing i have yet to try it. I have been fishing a spot like yours it a little south of were you fish. I have always been a bait fisherman. I bought some lures to try i am going to see if i can learn how to use them.
