secret weapon

I’ve had a lot of success the past two decades, fishing with weighted swimbait hooks, especially Eagle Claw Lazer Sharp L111s and, more recently, Eagle Claw Trokar TK170s, coupling them with boottail swimbait bodies like the Berkley PowerBait Split Belly and Hollow Belly; but also many other options, especially tubes (produce beautiful glides), and what I call grinder baits like the 5-inch Berkley Havoc Grass Pig and the newly introduced PowerBait Power Swimmer.They also couple superbly with craw-imitating options such as the Berkley Havoc Pit Boss and the Powerbait Chigger Craw—and with another overlooked craw-imitating option, the Berkley Gulp!

Tooth and the Wedge Science into Action- As predators like pike and muskies get larger, the average size of prey in their diet also gets larger. At the same time, however, the range of prey sizes consumed also expands substantially with predator size. So while the upper limits of prey size rises as a function of mouth gape, smaller items also can be retained in the diet. This phenomenon causes a wedge-shaped pattern in the relationship between prey size and predator size.While larger lures catch larger fish on average, downsizing can bring catches of big fish, a pattern that seems most noticeable for esocids in spring and early summer. Pike, for example, have been shown to key on leeches in shallow bays in spring, where smaller baitfish also…
