Nessie

$7.99, $9.99, and $12.99, for 5-, 7-, and 9-inch models, respectively | purefishing.com

The Berkley PowerBait Nessie, voted Best New Softbait at the most recent ICAST show, is a soft-bodied glider, at 5, 7, and 9 inches, providing a bigger profile to start the visual process that attracts big bass, pike, and walleyes. Stabilizing fins keep the bait running true. The hinged body provides realistic action, and a range of colors allows anglers to match the hatch. Nessie is a slow sinker.
