Powerbait Swallowing
Howdy, Fishin' Fam,

As much as I love powerbait, I have found a problem with using it. I like to sink it to the bottom and have it float about 3 feet from the bottom. The problem is whenever I use bigger hooks so the fish (mostly trout) don't swallow them, the powerbait doesn't float. When I use tiny hooks it sure as heck floats, but it sure as heck gets swallowed as well.
Any suggestions? Is there a light-weight larger hook out there? Should I use a bunch of powerbait? Is this inevitable with America's bait?

Thx.
