    I've used some in saltwater. The bloodworm flavor has worked good for such as spots, in particular, with a number of seatrout, croaker, whiting, black sea bass, and even a couple of small redfish.
    I tried some shrimp flavor recently and it did ok, but I didn't get to fish too long to give it a good test. Frozen shrimp from my freezer seemed to catch a little better. Squid flavor for me bombed. Didn't catch anything the one time I tried them, but I plan to use them some more.

    Anyone ever try crappie nibbles? Any good? If so where can I get some? I have heard about them and they say they work.

    Use the crappie nibbles all the time. Some times they make the difference in catching and not catching. They have what is called a bait pump that allows you to put nobbles into your hollow jigs. Makes them last a lot longer. Most of your bigger companies all carry them.

    Seems lately that I have been up and and down like a Yo Yo.That sure beats staying down all the time.Thanks.These Fishbites are advertised as bait that will keep.I would think that the Shrimp might catch Catfish as Shrimp will.I and my son have not been able to find a dip type bait that Catfish will bite in the Savannah and Ogeechee rivers.I have tried our sponsors baits in the past.I very seldom get to go any more,but I can catch fish on worms,live or cut fish and shrimp.Even a few on squid in tidewater.I need a bait that I can afford that works and that I can refrigerate and use again.I can no longer afford to buy much bait,much less buy it and throw it away as useless after trying it every way that I know how.AND it ain;t just me.peewee-williams

    David, I had real good luck with spots. I think the fishbites may have outfished shrimp, and one advantage was that I didn't catch nearly as many trash fish. Those little bitty black bass would just swarm the shrimp at slack tide, but they didn't bother the bloodworm fishbites much at all. I did catch several keepers though.

    I regularly use the Berkley crappie nibbles on the hooks of my jigs. Seems to help, especially after the spawn when they move out.BTW, you can get them at Wally World.

    I have used them the last couple of times I fished in saltwater. Did real well on the shrimp flaver. Caught some flounder, red fish and sand trout. With the kids, they were about the best thing that ever happened, because they stay on the hook really well. I get to fish, not buy bait and help bait hooks. I like them. I haven't tried the Berkley brand and the others are just available at a few bait shops where I fish.
