Berkley PowerBait Crappie Sparkle Nibbles
We have been using this product for the entire fishing season, I catch Crappie on this product but I also catch Large mouth bass, stripped bass and even catfish, I put a minnow on the hook and place a PowerBait on the hook and it will draw the fish.

chartuese crappie nibbles
Workd great fish hold on three times longer. Only work for crappie. Crappie also comeback after the bait and 1/3 the cost of minnows

I used to use plain white nibbles until I came across the silver sparkle nibbles which are the best of both worlds!! I love fishing with these b/c I dont like to use crickets or worms and unlike live bait, you can keep a jar in your tackle box. I love the sparkle nibbles b/c when the glitter comes off, you have a regular white nibble that the fish just love. I have caught bream, crappie, bass and other types of panfish on these. I leave the lid off of them a little while I am fishing and it makes them firmer and will stay on your hook longer. I absolutely love this product and I hope that Berkeley will never stop selling them!

Form over Function
Absolute waste of money! Great concept, but the Sparkles come off as soon as you touch the small baits. After one cast they are just gooey white marshmellows and you get the pleasure having tiny sparkles all over your hands, face, boat, carpet, clothes, etc. I understand they are supposed to drift off the bait and resemble fish scales, but this happens too fast and is messier than than live worms!
I will stick to the regular Pink Nibbles. They work OK even though the color comes off after a while too, but that is to be expected after a few checks and recasts. My kids thought they were cool looking, so they get 1 Star. Perhaps if Berkely is reading you may want to mix the sparkles in the dough and not just topcoat them. My 2 cents.
