Johnson Crappie Buster Shad Scales is rated out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Trypman1 from Works great!! I bought the Shad scales a few weeks ago and have been testing it for 3 crappie fishing trips, 1st trip, I was spider rigging with 6 poles, all the same color jig, 3 poles were plain and 3 poles with Shad Scales. Summer fishing is tough. I caught 7 crappie, all with the shad scales. 2nd trip, I used same setup but used crappie nibbles on the other 3 poles. I caught 17 keepers 8 with crappie nibbles and 9 with Shad Scales. 3rd trip- I slit the back of my tube jigs around 3/8th", to let scales bleed more. It was another slow day but I caught 7 keepers with scales, 2 with crappie nibbles. The biggest difference I see is the Shad Scales last much longer than nibbles, and they are easy to use with the filler spout going into the tubes. More testing when the weather cools down and the fish start a good bite again. I am happy with this product and will use much more in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Abswat from Seems to work My buddy had a tube of this stuff and we injected into shad tubes and we caught some huge crappie. Only problem was collar and back end of tube ruptured and every time we injected we got the stuff all over us. Need better packaging. Wound up using electrical tape all over tube to seal the leaks

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dargo from The dinner bell is ringing! I bought this over the winter, have used it several times with decent success, then yesterday went to a local pond, applied it to my plastics... Boom .... just about each cast yielded a good sized bass, now I'm hooked on Johnson Crappie Buster Shad scales!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Danny52 from Big Crappie Bought Shade Scales about a week before the Crappie Masters on Grenada lake Mississippi. Shade Scales give you the edge that helps you catch the big ones. Just put it in your tube jigs or over the outside of your hard baits. I like it a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Retired Bob from Made a difference! I was having a hard time getting them to bite! Injected the shad scales in my tube jig and WHAM! They couldn't resist it! This will definitely be a part of my arsenal from now on!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tmacgreg from Container issue When you squeeze it out the bottom bursts, don't buy this until they fix that issue
