Berkley® PowerBait® Crappie Sparkle Nibbles
Berkley does it again!
From the tried and trusted Berkley Power Bait for trout, to the Gulp shrimp, and now the Power Nibbles, Berkley just never fails me! I have a couple small ponds near my home and I wanted to get my 5 and 3 year old sons out to experience fishing. When you want to expose a kid to fishing for the first time you really want it to be memorable, and you want them to catch fish. While bluegill fishing is about as surefire as it gets for teaching fishing to kids, even these panfish can be tricky to entice to the hook sometimes. With the Sparkle type Power Nibbles it was mere seconds until the first strike, and my 3 year old landed his first fish on his own Spongebob Squarepants fishing pole, which also came from Bass Pro. I don't know what Berkley does to come up with all these baits that work so well on fish, but it almost seems an unfair advantage when you've got these baits and are landing fish while others around you only look on with nothing even biting their lines.

Great bait for Black Crappie
The first time I used the Berkeley platinum nibbles I attached it to the hook with the minnow.
I caught Black Crappies(specks as they are know in Florida). I have been having the most difficult time catching these fish during the day but with the Platinum nibbles I caught 8 eight specks including a 13 inch one. I tried the other nibbles I bought, chartreuse and red with no response. It is true the platinum flakes come off but I got a strike before they all came off. I definitely will buy more including the gold flaked one.

I USED THESE LAST SPRING. WORKS LIKE A CHARM. CAUGHT TWICE AS MAY FISH AS MY BUDDY THAT SAID THEY WOULD NOT WORK. HE NOW USES THEM.

wow best bait in a jar
I picked these up because they looked good. Went fishing and tried leeches, worms, minnows and caught a few fish. I then saw them in my tackle box(Gold rush nuggets). I put a jig on and a couple nuggets and a minute later a large mouth bass. I ended up catching crappie, blue gill, large mouth bass and walleye on this stuff. I'm hooked. I ordered all the colors and from other reviews I can't wait to try the platinum. The best stuff I have ever used period!
