Bass pros Edwin Evers, Skeet Reese and Scott Suggs worked with the Berkley PowerBait team to bring new designs to life. Each bait meets a specific bass fishing need and features the legendary PowerBait flavor that fish hold onto longer, allowing for more positive hooksets.
Developed with help from Evers, the PowerBait Agent E is a bottom-dwelling, flat-bottom swimbait with an ultra-low center of gravity and internal weighting that allows it to skid across the bottom. Fish this bait like a skirted bass jig or on a faster retrieve like a mid-water swimbait—the side-to-side kicking action and built-in “hard-nose” subtle rattle will draw attention. The integrated fluorocarbon hook keeper is invisible to fish and sheds the nastiest grass and debris while remaining easily collapsible on the strike.
Agent E is 2 ½ inches long, comes in 10 popular colors and retails from $6.99 to $8.99.
The PowerBait Boss Grub (3 and 4 inches) and Speed Boss (4.75-6.75 inches) are Reese-inspired designs that combine the profile of either a grub or a worm with PowerBait Pit Boss inspired action legs that create maximum water disturbance. Ideal for a host of presentations from Texas rigs to Florida rigs, the Speed Boss is excellent around grass. The Boss Grub’s chunky profile works great as a bladed jig trailer, on a jig head, swing head or a Texas rig. They both come in 12 colors and retail for $5.49 per pack.
The new PowerBait Crash Craw was developed in conjunction with Suggs and gives anglers a compact profile that works well in multiple situations. The rib design hides the hook for easy maneuvering in heavy cover plus adds additional surface area for PowerBait flavor. It’s trailing legs have a controlled, alternating action that’s perfect for all water temperatures and is exceptional on a wobble head setup. The PowerBait Crash Craw is also great for flipping or on a Texas rig, as a jig trailer, or event threaded onto a bladed jig.
The Crash Craw (3.5 and 4.25 inches) comes in 12 colors and retails at $5.49 per pack.
