Berkley product developers are committed to providing anglers with the best fish catching products. Each is rigorously tested and improved upon through a scientific process until the team is confident in it. Team Berkley has carefully packed this kit with products that are sure to catch more fish. When most people think of panfishing, they think of worms under a bobber for bluegill; however, sometimes you don't have access to, or don't want to care for, worms - that's when you reach for the Gulp! Earthworm. These baits look like the real thing, but have the added benefit of Gulp!'s extreme scent dispersion to draw fish in from near and far, making them the ideal substitute for live worms. If you are targeting crappie, try tipping your Essentials Round Ball Jig with a PowerBait Chroma Glow Crappie Nibble - they glow the color you see enabling fish to zone in on your jig. Once a fish bites, it will hold 18 times longer due to Berkley's exclusive PowerBait formula giving you more time to set the hook. The Essentials Round Ball Jig has a hook that will remain sharp fish after fish. For the anglers that prefer casting a plug, the size 4 Flicker Shad is the ticket - its unique "Flicker" action imitates a fleeing baitfish that will attract any species of panfish. All these baits can effectively be fished using Trilene XL - a super strong, yet smooth casting monofilament. This kit is bound to help you reel more panfish in this season!
