Pros:A quality soft plastic bait.
The Bottom Line: Berkley Bungee worms are as good as any other soft plastic bait on the market.
Berkley Bungee Worms - Soft Plastic Baits have been around for a few years. I use the Berkley worms because they make a realistic looking worm. They offer a motor oil color and a tequila sunrise color in most of their types and sizes. The motor oil color looks just like a real worm. They currently offer two types and two sizes of their soft plastic Berkley Bungee Worms ; The Power Bait Formula and the Tournament Strength with bio-salt flavor. You can buy them in either four or seven inch lengths. I prefer the Tournament Strength with bio-salt flavor worms. They cost about a dollar more than the Power Bait worms, per pack. I have no preference on the size of the worm. I believe a fish would go after a four inch worm just as fast as it would a seven inch worm. I probably use the seven inch worms more often than the fours. Its a little bigger, so It can be seen from a farther distance. It also carries more scent because of its larger mass.

How I Fish With This Bait
I mainly use the Berkley Bungee Worms when I am fishing in a river. I use enough weight to get the bait on the bottom. The amount of weight you use, depends on the strength of the current and depth of the hole. Most people fail to catch fish in a river because they dont use enough weight, your bait needs to be on the bottom. Now that you have enough weight on, place a Tournament Strength with bio-salt flavor, motor oil colored worm on your size #2 hook. Make sure your weights are at least 24 inches up the line from your hook. This lets your worm float two feet off of the river bottom, where your lead (weights) will be. This is where the fish usually lay. Now cast as far up river as you can. By the time your bait gets in front of you, itll be drifting on the river bottom. Now try several casts in every deep hole using this method and youll catch a nice trout. It takes some getting used to but once you master fishing with worms on a river bottom, youll catch some nice, Trout, Steelhead and Rainbows.
My final thoughts on Berkley Bungee Worms
One good thing about the Berkley Bungee Worms - Soft Plastic Baits is that they are plastic. These are great for anyone who is squeamish about using a real worm. Using a real worm or night crawler is a better bait than any soft plastic bait. Some pros would have you belief different but they are getting paid to promote these soft plastics. Some of the biggest fish that I have caught were on real night crawlers. This includes Large Mouth Bass and every species of Trout. The best bait for Trout is dry flies, real worms, real bugs (hellgrammites & Salmon flies) and roe.
However, there are those that will not touch a real worm let alone put one on a hook. This is where Berkley Bungee worms come in handy. I also use these worms for Large mouth Bass. Bass will hit about anything and they like these realistic looking and smelling (scented) worms. These Berkley soft baits have a lot going for them. They are scented and have a unique design. This worm is built to move in the water. It has a recoil action when it hits the bottom. This is where it gets its bungee name from. The Berkley researchers are always coming up with something new and innovative. When you need a realistic looking worm for whatever reason, the Berkley Bungee Worms - Soft Plastic Baits are as good as any other soft plastic worm on the market. I use them when I run out of live worms and cant find a bug. I give Berkley Bungee Worms - Soft Plastic Baits four of five stars.
Durability: Good / solid innovative design
Type: Trout, Bass, Catfish nearly any species will hit a worm
Price: $ 3.99 - $ 4.99 (Tournament strength are more expensive)
Location: Most tackle shops stock this product, but you may have to search online.
