Right out of the box, we launched with 17 great colors because the Manace is a very versatile design. It will provide many choices and if you get a chance to try it, let me know how you like it

Berkley Havoc Devil Spear is a fine bait for punchin. no appendages on the body for veg to hang up on & lotsa action in the tail...
I have looked at those baits countless times wondering what on earth I would use them for. That's a good idea.

I look for something with a good balance of "meat" and fluttering appendages for the fall but not so much that it would hang. Usually you are using a heavy weight to punch the cover youre fishing so the plastic is not likely to get hung up.
Check out the Havoc "Wide Load" and Craw Fatty, Zooms Brush Hog, Even a basic twin tail grub with a skirt will produce.
Its more a matter of getting the bait in the right spot in close quarters (pitching and flipping accuracy), having it fall vertically on semi slack line, and detecting and reacting to strikes in time, which can be very difficult and frustrating in the beginning.

x2 I've lately even had success with a zoom centipede, caught 10 punching it in about 2 hours
I have had good bites punching with senko's and other stick worms.
I hate winter
