PowerBait Heavy Weight Fat SinkWorm
Ask any pro on any circuit what type of soft plastic has
revolutionized the fishing world over recent years and
90-percent will say the weighted worm. Berkley scientists have
worked tirelessly to develop a naturally weighted soft plastic
that produces more strikes with every cast, the end product,
Berkley PowerBait Heavy Weight Fat SinkWorm and its lighter
cousin the PowerBait Heavy Weight SinkWorm.
All PowerBait Heavy Weights are created for multiple freshwater
species action and offer the irresistible PowerBait scent and
flavor that fish bite and won’t let go. PowerBait is fortified
into the bait, which creates a scent trailing leading fish
directly to the bait.
PowerBait Heavy Weights are ideal for fishing wacky-rigged,
weightless or Texas-rigged. The weighted formula allows the bait
to sink faster than conventional weighted baits with an action
that will entice the most stubborn fish.
The Heavy Weights Fat SinkWorm and SinkWorm are available in 10
fish-catching colors to match any water condition. Visit

Fish Belly Hawgshad
As an aquatics educator, I lead canoe and kayak fishing trips
on local streams. On the first trip of the year in 2007, I was
using the typical bait of choice, minnows. Halfway through the
trip, I ran out of minnows. Being a bit skeptical about new
fishing products, I was a bit disappointed to find that the only
other lures I had with me were a single pack of Fishbelly
Hawgshad I had purchased as an experiment. With no other choice,
I decided to try a Fish Belly’s Hawgshad and on my very first
cast, I hooked a nice smallmouth bass. By the end of that trip,
the single “experimental” pack had completely won me over. Using
the Fish Belly Hawgshad, I out fished every other angler using
live bait in 19 out of 20 trips in the spring of 2007. By
targeting my cast toward downed trees and rock piles, I found
myself with a close to 97% hook up rate. On several trips, other
participants playfully called me fish-guru because they were
amazed at the amount of river bass I landed using only plastic
bait and a bare hook with no weight on my line. Every time I
heard one of my companions mutter, “He’s landed another one!” I
smiled to myself and tried to decide whether or not to share my
secret…Fishbelly. Half way through each trip, I would relent and
show them the Hawgshad and soon, they were borrowing a Fishbelly
and were happily landing fish. In many years of fishing all over
the east coast and in many bass tournaments on various rivers
and streams, 2007 was one of the most exciting seasons I have
ever had thanks to Fishbelly. I will not fish another season
without them. Any anglers smart enough to try a pack of
Fishbelly’s will most likely be “hooked” too.
Sisson’s New Weedless Crankbait
Lee Sisson’s patent-pending LIP GUARD SYSTEM
creates the first ever truly weedless crankbait. Now available
on a dozen of the most popular Lee Sisson wood lure models, the
new weedless design allows anglers to crank grass and timber
without the frustrations of hanging up all of the time.
The LIP GUARD SYSTEM eliminates that
frustration, and allows anglers to crank water that was almost
unfishable before. The Sisson weedless crankbait system also
uses a weedless hook made specially for cranking. The fine wire
protects the hook point from grass or timber, but collapses
easily when fish bite down.
To rig any of the Sisson weedless lures, simply
run your line through the eye on the Lip Guard Wire and then tie
it to the split ring as you normally would. The Lip Guard Wire
protects the lip, keeping debris from hanging on. Combining the
Lip Guard Wire with the weedless crankbait hook makes these
lures virtually weedless.
