Baking Crappie Nibbles

Anyone care for baked crappie nibbles?

Berkley PowerBait Chroma-Glow Crappie Nibbles are excellent attractants and I use them a lot.  Stick one on the hook of your favorite jig or the hook with a minnow and you will get more bites.  You will discover that they are soft, straight from the jar, and can be picked off easily.  That’s where baking will make them tougher and longer lasting.  The instructions are simple.  But a word of caution, it might be best to bake them wile your wife is gone.  My wife is good with it, but some wives get upset with the slight odor, as reported back by a few.

Turn the oven on and set to 250 degrees. Pour and spread one or more jars into a cooking dish; I use a 9” pyrex pie pan. Once the oven reaches 250 degrees, place in the oven and leave for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, turn the oven off and leave in the oven for another 30 minutes.  Now, remove from the oven and place on the counter until cool. When cool, distribute back into the jar(s).  Suggestion: thoroughly wash the pan and place back where it belongs.

Berkley PowerBait Chroma-Glow Crappie Nibbles come in four colors: white, pink, yellow and chartreuse.  I buy all four colors and mix them together for baking and leave the colors mixed in each jar.  That way,  I don’t have several jars out at one time.  I have never found one color to work better than another but I have noticed that contrasting colors on jigs seems to get more bites.
