Berkley Powerbait Ripple Shad
The Berkley Powerbait Ripple Shad features a sleek profile complete with extremely life-like details, including 3D eyes and compelling coloring. The ribs or ripples extending all the way to the bait's tail set it apart from other similar baits on the market, creating additional water disturbance and vibration. The paddle tail still imparts its characteristic vibration and the classic swimming motion of a swimbait, while the Ripple Shad's thick head makes rigging easy and is perfect for holding the keeper of a swimbait hook. The Ripple Shad also benefits from Berkley's legendary Powerbait scent infused into every bait. The Powerbait formula generates a bite when nothing else works and causes fish to hold on 18 times longer than unscented baits. Try fishing the 4" model as a swimbait or on a jig head and the 3" on a drop shot rig. Very verstatile, both sizes of the Berkley Powerbait Ripple Shad will perform in a variety of applications.

Comments: The preferred hook to use on these is a jig head but I've been using a 4/0 1/8oz weighted swimbait hook and it works great rigged like that. This is my go to bait and definitely recommend trying to the racy shad color or smelt color.

Comments: SWEET little swimbaits BUT packaging method can have you buying a bag full of tweaked tail baits. YES you can fix them, but just be aware that you may have to.

Comments: fishing this in ontario i had a HUGE follow on the 5" with a 9/0 owner swimbait hook. I think it was a musky, probably 15+ lbs. Followed it all the way back to the dock but didnt commit. Great action, just wish they had some better colours.
