Berkley® PowerBait® Crappie Nibbles
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

No durability whatsoever.
These have absolutely no durability whatsoever, but they work great. One nibble is good for about one fish. Other than the durability problem they work great!

awesome for small catfish & panfish
well i got first just cause i lived by a small river & i usually use some hot dog on a small hook & bobber. catch some small gills or baby catfish. i got these in the pink & chart. to see if they would work dwon here in socal. i tiped the pinck on a jig & started geting hits instantly! after i just tock of the jig & used them on a plain hook with a small split shot & caught a nice little cat along with some small gills. overall aswome for some a good time out.
