Berkley Havo Sick Fish Jr.

Berkley Havo Sick Fish Jr.

On Sept. 11, 2012, we wrote a blog about the four-inch Berkley Havoc Sick Fish. Now there is a three-inch rendition, which ought to suit the fancy of scores of Midwest finesse anglers who will affix it to a small jig, such as a 1/16-ounce Gopher Tackle's Mushroom Head Jig.

It is called the Sick Fish Jr.

The folks at Berkley, which includes Skeet Reese of Auburn, California, and who competes on the Bassmaster Elite Series, say that it was designed to imitate a fleeing baitfish.

It is endowed with a unique tail that consist of a combination of a thin kicker tail and a paddle tail. Its torso resembles that of a flathead chub that is adorned with relatively realistic pectoral, pelvic and anal fins. In front of the dorsal fin, there is a hook slot for easy hook alignment.

It is available in 10 colors: Clear Bream, Chartreuse Shad, Disco Shad, Ghost Minnow, Gold Nugget, Green Pumpkin, Green Penny, Light Hitch, Swamp Gas and Tennessee Shad.

The suggested retail price of a package of five is $3.49.
