Saved the day
Me and my wife went to our regular honey hole.We usually catch a dozen or so keepers(hand size +) each time we go.This trip we weren't getting anything to bite,.No fish were playing around popping/splashing like normal either.The river was rising,and water temps were high.The fish just weren't in the mood.
We used crickets for the first 4 hours with no luck..And for fun (because this stuff never works anyways right)...I decided to use the pink crappie nibbles on the tip of the hook with the cricket..Well wham! I caught a 1lb 2oz shellcracker,and she started getting fish too...when we missed a strike (because sometimes they took it under before we could get our slack up)we would reel it in to see the cricket still there,but the nibbles gone each time they hit..It seemed they weren't hungry,but had to hit the nibbles.They would not hit if there wasn't a nibble on there.
They were slamming it time it hit the water.In the next 45 minutes we caught 40 or so fish between the 2 of us.We kept 18.We caught warmouth,shellcrackers,and bluegills,plus my wife caught a 2lb 5oz bowfin.
It definately saved the day when the fish were obviously not active.Sometimes they do come off easy,but they worked great this day,and there are enough in the jar so I don't mind.
I know nothing is going to work every single time..Fish can be finicky,but this is definately something I will keep in my tackle box.
I have included 2 pictures.One with the the keepers,and the other is a pair of warmouth..The bigger one had a deformed mouth..The top of it didn't function,but he still had to hit the bait..lol

not too hot
These just don't stay on the hook. I don't know if fish like them or not for that reason. I don't want to say this is bad bait since it may be great...if it would just stay on the hook.

I bought this bait in the hopes that it would yield some better results and did it ever! It felt like every cast out with this bait whether it was straight on the hook or joined with a jig resulted in a fish.
I used the white and chartreuse colored baits and couldn't be more impressed. It also worked great for the yellow perch in our lake. I used a 1.5 inch pink grub with some of the bait on the hook and had amazing results!
If you are looking for a product to help increase your panfish(or yellow perch) catch rate then this is the bait for job!

Love these things
At first when I got these, I was very skeptical about these. I usually only use live bait for panfish but I decided to try these out. They worked amazing! I put 2 of these on a bare size 6 to 8 hook and cast it out weightless and catch them all day. These aren't quite as good as a nightcrawler or wax worm but that is expected. Still a great product!
