Hey Barney I'm by no means a trout expert but I did go to hauco springs the other day with pink and green power bait and I got skunked. I was there with my buddy using the same bait Carolina rigged and the only fish he caught was off a kernel of corn he found floating by him. There was a guy right next to us catching them like crazy with just a tiny single hook and one kernel of corn!
The areas to catch talapia are best south of the bridge next to the playgroung. From there you will see a walk over bridge, lots of lilly pads. Make sure to use your bread with the crust attached.Just remember your best chances of catching is to use only line and hook.
