Us plumber never caulk all the way around a tub spout.

any tips on how to redo the spout connection to make it not leak? like i said above i used caulk around the pipewhich seemed to make a very good connection but there is still a slow leak. Would you recommend just using more caulk? Is there a specific type of caulk i should use?
I did not have caulk around the spout where it connects to the wall, once i stop the leaking should i put caulk around the spout itself. (and leave the bottom uncaulked?)
