I'm not much of a trotliner, but put out a few hooks a couple times a year when we camp at Pomme. I've always had the issue of my bait being gone. I baited 35 hooks this weekend and when I run them in the morning all but a couple baits are gone. I use live perch caught at Pomme. I use circle hooks and also a few straight hooks. I even use the Gamatsus like Vince recommended a while back. What do I need to do different? I only caught one smallish flatty all weekend.
