Finesse News Network's Gear Guide: Berkley's Havoc Four-inch Sick Fish

Berkley Havoc Sick Fish Swimbait

The Berkley Havoc Sick Fish Swimbait is four inches long.


It was designed to mimic the bodies and fins of a variety of minnows and baitfish.



Because of its unique tail design, it  exhibits a lifelike swimming action during fast and slow retrieves.

Most Midwest finesse anglers will affix it to a 3/32-ounce Gopher Tackle Mushroom Head Jig and employ it  the same way they wield a four-inch  grub.  Other anglers can use it on either a weighted or unweighted extra-wide-gap worm hook. It will also work on a potpourri of other styles of jigs -- such as darter head jig or even a shaky-head jig, as well as on  a drop-shot rig and a variety of  umbrella rigs.


It is currently available in 10 colors: chartreuse shad, clear bream, disco shad, ghost minnow, gold nugget, green penny, light hitch, swamp gas, Tennessee shad and green pumpkin.


The suggested retail price for a package of 6 is  $3.49.

**********************************************************

Footnote: Several readers have asked about the  origins of the Finesse News Network's Gear Guide, and why we do it.  

Its genesis stemmed from several requests from Midwest finesse anglers who were constantly searching for new soft-plastic  finesse baits. Thus, we replied   to their requests by saying every time we saw a new one that we would post a brief description of it on In-Fisherman's blog site.

Most new baits are introduced to the angling world at the ICAST show, which was staged this year on July 11-13 at Orlando, Florida, and that is why there has recently been an onslaught of briefs that feature a potpourri of  new soft-plastic finesse lures.  I suspect there will  be several more briefs in the days to come, and a few more will  undoubtedly appear at other times of the year. 

If readers cross paths with some or know of some soft-plastic finesse baits that we have failed to include in this series, please send us a note, and tell us about them.
