Do any of you use Crappie Nibbles?

Recommended Posts

Hi

My bro-in-law uses Crappie Nibbles on his jigs and usually catches quite a few crappie (of course he shares with me - :). My question, is do any of you use it and what, if any, success do you have? He said he uses the chartruese color.

I use them but not all the time. Havnt used them long enough to really tell if they add much to the presentation but i think they do. I use chartruse ones with glitter on them. Not sure if i will buy the glitter ones again because it comes off easily in the water and on your hands. I just tip my jigs with them.

I use them all the time when fishing with jigs.   Works great.

I use them when they're light biting. Seems to get them to hold on a little longer.

i never use a jig without something on the hook. i use crappie nibbles a lot, but if you can find them, use maggots.

As long as the water is not frozen over, I catch crappie all winter long. I get out whenever the temp isn't too low. Don't like freezing my tail off, you know. But, too get back on point, winter crappie fishing around here demands a very slow presentation. For me it's a tiny tube below a float. In warmer water, a grub on a jighead, swimming horizontally will often take a lot of fish. For those times, a nibble isn't really necessary, but won't hurt either. For the colder water approach, I've found a nibble to be essential. I've proven that, at least to my satisfaction, to the point that I won't go out without at least a couple of jars of Power Nibbles. I've read that crappie are one of the most taste/smell sensitive among freshwater fishes. They will suck in a bait and spit it out without even twitching the float, if they don't like the taste. The nibbles take care of this problem better than anything I've ever tried. Maggots and waxworms work as well. They're just hard to find in the dead of winter, and don't store well during warmer months. Nibbles are a lot less hassle than live bait.

Cheers,

I also tip a jig with the chartruse sparkle ones from time to time, and I think they help. Normaly when vertical jigging in the junk.
