The lure that started it all... our purpose was to create an exact replica of a piece of commercial fish food. We wanted it to look, smell, taste and float just like real fish food. We thought only pellet-trained fish or hatchery raised fish would be tempted by our lure. We were wrong! This TOURNAMENT WINNING FORMULA is being used to catch crappie, small mouth bass, large mouth bass, catfish, tilipia, redfish, bluegill, redeyes, perch, barramundi, hybrid striped bass, eel, turtles, you name it - we've caught it!
20 lures per pack. One piece will out-fish a whole jar of the other guys! 62 crappie have been caught using only one pellet! Also available in SPARKLE!

Who knew something so simple as fishing food could increase my fishing game. Easy to use and reuse. I was able to keep the same piece on my hook casting all afternoon.

Recently while fishing the CrappieUSA Super event at Pickwick lake my partner and I discovered your awesome product. We both added a piece to our jigs and were amazed at our success. We finished 2nd in the Pro division out of the top Crappie anglers in the USA. The product stays on the hook amazingly well. As a matter of fact we traveled about 40 miles to the weigh in and all four rods still had the bait on the jig when we got there. The only time I had to re-apply was when I broke of my jig. I definitely out performs the competition attractants. THANKS for a great product

This stuff really works. I only fish for crappie and I use a soft plastic jig. I used to use the nibbles and only in the spring and fall. A friend of mine told me about Stubby Steve's and it became a must. I now tip my jigs with it every time. One piece will usually last all day. If you add anything to your lure or bait you really should give Stubby Steve's a try. It works

The bait worked well in the river Brackish water caught some nice catfish on it but also hooked some nice spotted sea trout on this bait. I really enjoyed fishing with this product

I heard about this product at a tournament seminar and was anxious to try it out so I ordered some. It is supposed to be a great scent attractor of crappie and is billed to stay on the hook all day. We have actually been fishing prespawn which is typically good fishing anyway so we have not noticed a big difference. I am a big believer in scent for fishing and while a bit unhappy with some other products for crappie such as "crappie nibbles" and "gems" not staying on he hook, I was very surprised and happy with the Stubby Steve's product. I don't know how long the scent actually lasts in these things but I have used the same nugget on hooks on different lakes in 2 states and it's still there. No money thrown away here. Soon the fishing will get tougher and I hope to find out how much of a difference the new fish food will make

"The good people at Stubby Steve's have created something special with this lure. I have caught so many species with this when nothing else was working. And rarely do you ever need to rebait your hook."

Testimonial by Captain Darrell Van Vactor, President/CEO Crappie USA and Cabela's King Kat Trail
"Having worked in the fishing business for over 25 years it takes a lot to impress me when talking about new fishing products. During the past two months four of our employees and myself have been fishing Stubby Steve's for crappie, shellcracker, bluegill and channel catfish. Knowing well the importance of scent and having used Power Bait and Gulp for years when fishing for these species my employees and I are overwhelmed at the effectiveness of Stubby Steve's. One pellet will last longer than a jar of Power Bait product and catch as many or more fish whether fished alone on a bare hook or tipped on a jig. When anglers try this product they will never go fishing without it. It is truly the best scented bait I have ever used."
