Berkley PowerBait Trout Nuggets
Excellent Trout Bait
I have used this bait several times and it has always produced well. It is easy to put on the hook without the mess of other trout baits and stays on well. It works well when casted upstream and drifted till it hits the bank downstream but you will usually get a strike before that happens when trout are in the area. It stores well without having to be refrigerated and stays fresh as long as you keep the lid on tight. Give this bait a try and you won't be disappointed.

Best out there
I use this every time i go trout fishing. I just let it float down stream in the river and it get hit most of the time.Fishing it in the lakes i use a little weight about 18 inches away from the bait.If there is something around its going to get hit. Very easy to use and most importantly it stays on your hook. If your interested in this product i would suggest you buy it. Its worth it!

This stuff works
Opening day,trout season,high sierras,29 degrees. The thought of messing with the dough and having to wipe it off not an option anymoreThis stuff works on mostly planters and even a few native trout. It will always have a place in my vest! Note: If opened, use the nuggets within a year or they get really hard and are unusable.

A GREAT bait that is sure to produce!
I have used Berkley® PowerBait® Power Nuggets for many years. These lil' things always seem to work! You may need to experiment with different colors to see what the trout prefer, but eventually you will have some success!
The best way to use these nuggets is to attach a small treble (size #12 - #16) to a 1.5 foot leader, then attach to a #0 snap swivel to the opposite end of the leader. Onto your 2lb - 6lb test main line, thread on a small egg sinker, then attach a #0 snap swivel to the end of your main line. After rigging, roll 2 nuggets together and mold the now bigger nugget into a tear drop shape onto your hook. Due to the main line sliding through the egg sinker, trout feel no resistance, thus resulting in more hooked fish. This technique is best suited for fishing stocked ponds.
