Berkley PowerBait Rib Snake
Berkley power rib snake
I use 4 inch baits most of the time, but on a tournament I was having some bad luck with everything I was using and a guy ask me if I had ever used the Berkley power rib snake and I said no and haven't even heard of them . He said let me give you a few and told me how too use them, which I did and went on down the lake and let me say that was one of the best days tournament fishing I've had in a while. Took 2nd place and now this bait is my go to bait 99% of the time and I have had one heck of a tournament year thanks to the man who presented them to me.

My fishing partner could not find his regular "go to" worm in the color he likes, so he got these. I used our regular finesse worm. We caught the same amount , but he landed 2 four pound largemouths! Seemed like the bigger fish were hitting his. He also caught 2 two pounders. I got 5 total 1lb or less. I WILL get a bag of these next time. Used them on a shakey head.

Flat Out Catches 'Em
Texas-rigged on a 3/0 or 4/0 EWG hook with a 3/16 or 1/4 oz worm weight, this bait has become my go-to confidence bait when fishing around submerged grass or rip rap. Yes, it tends to tear a bit more than other PowerBait plastics, but when you're catching them every 3 or 5 casts, it's hard to find fault with it.

Bought a pack of these baits to try after reading a review of them. Tried them this week at Lake Fork with very good results. Baited up with a rib snake and got immediate action flipping into downed trees and brush. Tried it again with same results. Changed to a baby brush hog to compare - got no bites for approx 30 minutes. Changed back to the rib snake and bites resumed. Suppose this could be a coincidence but --- maybe not. Used the entire pack of baits and caught around 15. As a prior report said, the baits are soft and don't always last for multiple fish, but think the softness is part of the fish attraction, along with the power bait flavor. Buying more rib snakes today.
