Berkley® PowerBait® Catfish Bait Chunks
Does not work
Tried to use the Fish and Blood down at Saylorville lake in Iowa with zero luck. My friend had good bites off of liver and I couldn't even get a nibble. I switched over to liver using the same rig set up and was finally able to get bites. I still didn't pull in anything impressive but made me wonder how worthless this bait was.

not so good
this product is a really easy and quick thing to set up but when fishing on a river for catfish it disitigrates quicker than my hopes on catching a fish.

Beauty but stinky
Although this bait smells horrible I caught a thirty pound blue cat a thirteen pound largemouth a forty two pound pike and a ten pound blue gill. Wow what a bait!

I tried the powerbait side by side with nightcrawlers, crawdads, cut bait and grasshoppers in over a dozen ponds and lakes over the spring and summer. I didn't catch a single fish with the powerbait. Not one. Even in an overstocked pond teeming with bullheads and channel cat, they simply wouldn't touch this stuff. With any other bait they would attack it seconds after hitting the water but the powerbait could sit there forever without a nibble. Amazing.
You really have to wonder if Berkley even tested this garbage. Congratulations Berkley! You've created something even starving catfish won't eat. Don't know how you managed to pull that off but it's quite an accomplishment.
You're better off just using any other type of bait but this powerbait. A bare hook would out fish it. It's actual fish repellant.
