which are better?

I prefer the white "popper" larvae. Stay on the hook better than waxies. I've always preferred the larvae to waxies and have more confidence in them. There are times that the scent clouds that the waxies put out in the water are the ticket, however.

I like larvae because they tend to stay on the hook longer than waxies. Also, their size gives you more options over waxies. If it's a light bit, I'll put just 1 on the hook so there's more chance of a hookset. To attract them, I'll try several.

I do like that waxie's have more joice, but overall, I've had better luck with larvae

All I ever used up until a few years ago were waxies. They would get the job done, but it seemed like you would have to rebait your hook after every fish. I switched to larvae a few years ago and I think I catch just as many if not more fish with larvae, and they stay on your hook forever!

Whats a spike or a mousie, then? Must not be around here, but I hear others talking about them

A spike is just another name for eurolarvae or maggot. I've used mousies in the past, but don't see them around too often.
