Tackle Talk: Berkley Powerbait Thief

Not only does this soft plastic bass fishing bait catch ‘em, but it’s also an extremely durable and economical choice for budget-minded anglers.

Apparently I’ve been living under a rock because until recently, I hadn’t even heard of the Berkley Powerbait Thief. Wired2Fish CEO Todd Hammill was ranting and raving to me about it and ended up sending me a couple of packs to try. And my word, it catches the tar out of ‘em.

I’ve been fishing with it for about a month and it’s a darn good bait for flipping and pitching; it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites.
