The Berkley Powerbait 5" Jerk Shad features an extremely life-like profile and enticing action. The Jerk Shad also has the added benefit of Powerbait scent and attractant. Once a fish bites into the Jerk Shad, the Powerbait flavor impregnated into the bait, causes the fish to hang on longer for more positive hooksets. The Powerbait 5" Jerk Shad quickly darts and glides smoothly - imitating an escaping bait fish. Definitely a versatile bait, the Berkley Jerk Shad can be fished effectively around shallow cover or in open water.

Comments: These baits are not usually available in NZ so I took a bit of a gamble when I bought them sight unseen. One of the best tackle decisions I have ever made. They are great for Snapper & Kahawai and durable too. I'm totally sold on them.

Comments: Berkley calls this a saltwater bait, however, largemouth slam this. Maybe it's the lifelike eyes on these? I fish a lake in NJ that has mostly 12 to 14 inch bass with an occasional 4 pounder. I have caught 3 - 4 lb. bass on this lure. Berkley should make the same lure and call it freshwater.
