Berkley's PowerBait Shaky Snake

Berkley's PowerBait Shaky Snake

Since Sept. 9, Midwest finesse anglers have been able to purchase and use Berkley's PowerBait Shaky Snake, and it has caught the fancy a some of them.

It is a five-inch finesse worm.

The tip of its head is flat and chunky. The portion of its torso above the clitellum is encompassed with a series of  subtle ribs, replicating an earthworm's cuticle. Twenty prominent ribs encircle the torso from the clitellum to the beginning of its somewhat cone-shaped tail, and Berkley calls these ribs corkscrew ribs. The ribs are designed to create a provocative and undulating action, which the folks at Berkley describe as a dance.

In addition to enhancing the action, the ribs create more surface area, which allows more of the PowerBait scent to radiate from the Shakey Snake than radiates from a four-inch ribbon-tail Berkley PowerBait Worm, or their five-inch Shaky Worm, or their six-inch Earthworm.

Berkley recommends that anglers employ it on either a standard shaky-head jig with a 2/0 hook or on a drop-shot rig. Midwest finesse anglers might customize it a touch by removing a half to a whole inch from its head and the upper portions of its torso, and they will affix it on a 1/32- to 3/32-ounce mushroom-style jig with a hook that ranges in size from a No. 2 to a No. 6.

It is manufactured in the following colors: Black/Blue, Black/Chartreuse, Green Pumpkin, Green Pumpkin Party, Green Pumpkin/Chartreuse, June Bug, Plum, Purple, Red Shad Green Glitter, Watermelon, Watermelon Big Red, Watermelon Magic Red, and Watermelon/Chartreuse.

The suggested retail price for a package of 10 is $4.99.
