Which Berkley Soft Plastic

Recommended Posts

I love Zoom flukes. But I want to try a Berkley because it has Powerbait. What jerk bait is most like a Zoom fluke in action?

 

What is your favorite Berkley soft plastic?

You could also buy a bottle of the powerbait scent and add it to the flukes you already have. The havoc line of baits from berkley are all good baits but I don't think any of them have the powerbait scent added to them. I have not tried the havoc jerk bait as of yet but the pit boss, rocket craw, and craw fatty are great baits at a very good price point esp. when rebates are offered.

Berkley Havoc The Jerk is my favorite soft plastic jerkbait.

I really like Havoc baits. Haven't tried the jerk tho.  They are all fantastic baits for 3 bucks, and often you can get them for less.

Z Man has a fluke-type bait scented with ProCure.

 

I like the Berkley Havoc Ike's Devil Spear rigged horizontally on a jig spinner.

10 inch Power Worm and the 3 inch Chigger Craw are my favorite Berkley baits. I still slather them in Megastrike even though they have a stank of their own.

My Zoom Flukes get the same treatment.

I like the Berkley stuff, Gulp, Powerbait are really good stuff.. But can get expensive. I've really come to like Big Bite Baits. Good scent, soft, supple plastic, and great price point. Try their soft jerkbait and buy it in the Pro Pack size for extra savings.

  It's not a soft jerkbait but my favorite Berkley soft plastic is their seven inch power worms.  I try other worms with ribbon tails and nothing matches those Berkley powerbait worms.  It's part of my top three lures - Yum-Dingers, lizard, and Berkley Powerbait Power seven inch worms.

The Powerbait Jerk Shad is a great soft plastic jerkbait. The only issue I have had with it is the paint used to color the back peeling off, but it hasn't made any noticeable difference in catching fish. I find they work best rigged on a belly-weighted hook. I think they are a part of the saltwater series, but I'm not sure. Regardless, they catch lots of bass.

I guess mine is the big ripple shads since it's the only Berkeley plastics I really buy. My step father only fishes 7" electric grape power worms. Literally he only fishes those.

If you use senko type baits, try the Flat Dawg. Best action on the fall you will see. Two problems though. Very light and a one fish bait. But the Havoc line are all $2.99 so just buy a bunch. The Craw Fatty and Hawk Hawg are pretty good baits. Haven't used Chigger Craws in a while but they will get you bit too.

I use berkley plastics a lot, especially pit bosses, which IMO are the best creature bait out there. I still love power worms though, but they aren't my go to worm. I spritz up my havoc baits with a couple sprays of BANG craw/shad combo in the bags.

 

I'm looking at trying some back slides and flat dawgs as well.

I'll join the Pit Boss express. Choo choo! I never leave home without them, no matter the conditions.

Don't buy green pumpkin Power Worms, and whatever you do, don't dip the tails in chartreuse JJ's Magic. Think of the children.

Has anyone tried the Havoc Money Maker?

Yes, it's a lot smaller than I'd hoped. I was thinking something the size of a stick worm with large, bulbous ends that would create lots of action on a wacky rig. What I got is the size of a finesse worm with little nubs on each end with really no extra action that I can see and too light to fish without a weighted jighead on a wacky rig. I've caught some fish with them on a drop shot, but I'm pretty bad at dropshotting so that's really not saying much for them.

Agreed on the Berkely Havoc the jerk. They are great and have great action.
