Berkley PowerBait Hatchery Formula Trout Nuggets

Pros:It may work for kids fishing in lakes with planted Trout.

Cons:Doesn't work on most native Trout in the north-west.

The Bottom Line: I would only recommend this bait to a youngster who is learning to fish.


Berkley has been making all sorts of PowerBaits over the last few years. Of all of their PowerBait series, the Berkley PowerBait Hatchery Formula Trout Nuggets are the least used in my tackle box. The idea is alright if you are in fact fishing for freshly planted Trout. These trout nuggets are what the hatchery fish are feed while they are raised in various fish hatcheries. The problem is that these fish are not very big because they have just been planted. Furthermore there is not much sport in catching these small planted lake trout for me anyhow. On the other hand if you have a youngster that is just learning to fish, the Berkley PowerBait Hatchery Formula Trout Nuggets might be worth a try. You can try these “Trout Nuggets” on a bobber or bottom fishing. They also work on young bass and Lake Crappy will nail anything including a bare hook in my neck of the woods. Berkley PowerBait Hatchery Formula Trout Nuggets come in two scents that I have listed below.

► Original
► Cheese

My final thoughts on Berkley PowerBait Hatchery Formula Trout Nuggets

Berkley Trout Nuggets are scented just like the rest of their PowerBait series. I figure that this bait may work for fishing in some of the south – eastern states because it has been on the market for a few years now. I guess more people could enjoy fishing for planted Trout than I do as well. What ever the case, this product continues to be a good seller in bait and tackle stores. I buy a package now and then for my daughter. She will put this bait on her hook as opposed to a worm. My wife will use them if she goes fishing with us to. She doesn’t like worms either? You’d think the worm had a stinger or something. So while I am catching the 3-4 pound Rainbow Trout my wife will have her bobber in the water with a Berkley PowerBait Hatchery Formula Trout Nugget waiting to catch a half pound hatchery planted Trout. I have never caught a large Trout using this bait. Who knows though, maybe someday my daughter will nail a confused old Rainbow and show me a thing or two. I would recommend worms and spinners for Trout myself. I give Berkley PowerBait Hatchery Formula Trout Nuggets two of five stars.
