Berkley Havoc Ike's Devil Spear
Pro designed to help you catch more bass, Berkley is releasing their brand new line-up of Havoc baits to coincide with 2011 Bassmaster Classic on the Loisiana Delta.
The Berkley Havoc Ike’s Devil Spear was designed by 2003 Bassmaster Classic Champion, Michaeal Iaconelli. He wanted a bait that would really penetrate thick cover yet have a great action on the fall. With its streamlined body and original spear-shaped tail, the Havoc Devil Spear is sure to be a favorite around the heavy stuff.
“I love this bait. I can fish it many different ways, and the design is completely original. While I worked with Berkley on this design, it was clear that we needed to come up with something off-the-wall that was entirely functional on any bass-fishing technique. I wanted a bait that could be fished easily in heavy cover and have a great action on the fall. We came up with a segmented tail to create a flapping or whipping action. The Devil Spear is tough, but retains all the action.” - Michael Iaconelli

Comments: they get the tails ripped off pretty easy if you get a short strike. the bait is still usable without the tail, you just don't get as much action. I love the lure for jigs. swim, punch, etc.

Comments: These baits flat out catch big bass and there is almost no way to rig it wrong. Dozens of presentation applications. T-Rig, on a fb head & dragged, punch rig. As a depth charge or swimming across a shallow flat as a swim bait. You will hook up some donkeys. I fish this bait all year round any time of day. One of my faves

Comments: I just realized this past weekend that the smaller version of this bait is the PERFECT trailer for a 1/4 oz. chatterbait. I wasn't too impressed when this first came out but after throwing one on a chatterbait I was very impressed. The tails dances all over the place when reeled in. So now I have found a permanent spot in my tackle bag for this bait.

Comments: Ike knows what's up. Rig em sideways. Throw some mega strike in the tail grooves and these psycho bass catchers disperse those amino acids all over the place. WOOOOOO

From: Bubba: NJ
Comments: Attention Walleye Fisherman... Bait is made for bass and more flipping and pitching technique, but it is a killer swim bait either texas rigged (1/8 oz. and 3/0) or on a belly weighted EWG best color is either the pearl blue or the bluegill. Give it a try, interested in what other eye' fisherman think.
From: Noah: Estancia, NM

From: John: WI
Comments: Slapped one of these in watermelon red on a swimbait hook with the tail vertical and worked great, awesome action and extremely weedless, thanks Ike!!
From: Zach: Brown, IN
Comments: Like the others I was a bit skeptical, but grabbed a bag anyways. Doesn't look like much, but I don't try to argue with the fish...
From: Bob: United States
Comments: Extremely skeptical about it and grabbed them just to fill out a Dick's promotion. Turns out these things do catch fish. Drag it along the bottom, swim it, or buzz it they all work. Great bait for the price.
From: Gundersmith: FL
Comments: I picked up a pack in red shad caught a couple. Just wondering if anyone tried different colors and did any good?
From: Jake: Ohio

From: Cher: WI
Comments: Fished it Texas rigged and caught 3 bass. Biggest went 4lbs. I mised fish and would pitch it back and they would bite it again and again until caught. never had a plastic do that. the action of the flapping tail is unreal
From: Mark: Lexington, KY
Comments: Very versatile bait, burn it across the top and the bass come running, fished it on a texas rig with an 1/8 ounce weight, also very strike prone.
From: Britton: Memphis, TN
Comments: Awsome little bait, easy on the wallet, and the best part it outright catches bass, I fished mine on a light jig head and hopped it on the bottom, super good action and good design, thanks IKE!!!
