Rated 4 out of 5 by DTfisher Not a Berkley fan However, I contacted BPS to see if they would start stocking this. And the outstanding BPS customer service helped and got this product in. When I first got this, I wasn't sure how to rig it. I used it on a drop shot but the results were tremendous. The other way I rigged it was Texas without pegging the weight. That had some really good results too. I used this in a river area as well as a lake. For the lake, I kept it a little closer to me so it was more vertical and used it to relate to structure. For the river areas, I would throw it out and give a slight hop every few seconds to let the current take the bait down. It was not early enough in the season for me to catch trout but I had some incredible days catching bass (smallmouth really like this more than the largemouth). The only advice I would give you is not to leave the bait on the hook when not fishing. It dries up and becomes very difficult to take off the hook. What I did was use a Tupperware type container, dumped all of the bait (and juices) in there. I mixed all my colors in there and allowed them to be moist at all times. The size of the bait works best with 2/O hooks but can be stretched to 3/O. The colors for the NH area were Green Pumpkin (which worked for the earliest part of the season), black (the most effective), black (with red flakes). I would suggest getting at least one black of anything else. I would also say that experimentation is also fun. See what you can do with this bait to catch something. It is fun to use and the bait has a better chance of not getting ripped up. However, Berkley's customer service is not very good so please keep that in mind when purchasing this from them.
