Rated 5 out of 5 by JP3146 Great Results Was a little skeptical as I've been fishing live crickets my entire life but these things actually outfished the real things last week on a trip to Florida. I'm sold, and a heck of a lot easier to get on a hook! June 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by MHLincoln works great The Berkley crickets work great under a float on a number 8 hook. I have caught bluegill and crappie on this bait. I recomend not removeing the foil seal all the way. That way the jars dont leak. April 1, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by PLeary Not sure yet, but it doesn't look good. I have been on the water 6 times since the ice left the lakes. It is still early, however, I even while catching timidely feeding blue gill in deep water I have tried the cricket thinking that this would incourage more bites than my real wax worms. I have yet to catch any blue gill on this bait. I have only cought about 27 blue gill on real bait though since I've tried this product next to it. The product looks good, though I was unhappy with the lack of a brown realistic color in the crickets. I am still holding out hope since I hate messing with real crickets, it's just a pain to deal with them, but I usually turn on a school of panfish with real crickets quite easily. I will continue to try them as the water warms and the fish feed more, then I can post a more confident review. March 27, 2012

A:It depends on how you rig it but for me I've gone 8 fish in a row without having to replace the cricket. It does get torn up but just hook it thru in a different spot, its just as good.
Then again I've had unlucky days where the fish manage to take the cricket and throw the hook after only a couple
Details:this product looks very lifelike
i think this would be a good panfish and small largemouth and smallmouth bait
which months would you recommend using this bait? i hear late summer early fall is better for crickets
i was planning on using a light setup 5 foot 6 light rod and pfleuger gx7 reel with 4 -8 lb line
opinions,add anything you would like?
A:You just can't beat a real cricket for panfish, I've never caught a smallmouth on one though. Crawfish baits and small quarter ounce in line spinners are the heat for smallmouth.

A:I've only used this in spring and it was a complete success. I usually use them on the exact rods you're speaking of. Both my 5ft ultralight and 7ft light pfleuger rods work well for this. I use 4 or 6lb line. I'm going to try it for fall and see how it works
