HAVOC Pit Boss:
Designed by Skeet Reese, the Berkley HAVOC Pit Boss is an innovative new
twist on the traditional creature bait. This 4 inch bait is designed to be fished
in the harshest and most demanding fish habitats. “I love fishing with a
flippin’ stick,” said Skeet Reese, Berkley Pro Angler. “I designed the Pit Boss
to mimic bait fish as well as crayfish. It’s the perfect size to match the most
common forage sizes and has the best possible action to get bites in all
Here's the HAVOC Pit Boss pro-designed by

ups and water movement. The Pit Boss is available in 10 effective colors

Pro-Designed by Iaconelli, the HAVOC Devil
Spear is an original
HAVOC Devil Spear:
Leave it to pro angler Michael Iaconelli to come up with something original, and
just a little off the wall. Working with
Berkley's design team Iaconelli designed the HAVOC Devil Spear. This new bait is hard to describe,
half of it appears to be a fattened grub with
a completely unique tail.
The 4 inch Devil Spear has a
spear-shaped tail design and features three slits (similar to multi-jointed
swimbaits) to provide action when the bait is moved.
“I love this bait,” said
Michael Iaconelli, Berkley Pro Angler. “I can fish it many different ways, and
the design is completely original. While I worked with Berkley on this design it
was clear that we needed to come up with something off the wall that was
entirely functional on any bass-fishing technique. I wanted a bait that could be
fished easily in heavy cover and have great action on the fall. We came up with
a segmented tail to create a flapping or whipping action. The Devil Spear is
tough, but retains all the action.”
The new Berkley HAVOC Devil Spear will also
baits per pack and will retail for $3.49. Ten color choices and patterns are
Bug, June Bug Red Fleck, Black Blue, Sapphire Blue Black Fleck, Red Shad,
Watermelon Red Fleck, Alabama Craw, Green Pumpkin, Green Pumpkin Blue Fleck and
The HAVOC Craw Fatty with crazy appendages
and a wide ribbed body
HAVOC Craw Fatty:
The Craw Fatty designed by Bobby Lane is designed to be a versatile new bait. It
features twin flapping claws, tentacles, and a substantial mass to give bass more to chew on.
“The Craw Fatty has bigger
ribs and a wider body to increase action and trigger more bites,” said Berkley
pro team member Bobby Lane. “And the thinner design in the body will result in
flawless hook sets. You can flip it, pitch it, punch it, rig on a jig, Texas rig
it or Carolina rig it."
Available in 10 exciting colors (Watermelon
Candy, Green Pumpkin, Green Pumpkin Red, Black Red Fleck, Black Blue Fleck,
Okeechobee Craw, Smoky Green Pumpkin, Black-Blue Silver Fleck and Louisiana Bug),
the bait comes 8 per pack with a retail price of $3.49.
HAVOC The Deuce, a twin tail grub that works
HAVOC The Deuce:
There have been
multiple tail grub-type baits, but many are not much more than lifeless drones.
Berkley partnered with Gary Klein to create what they hope will be a game
changer. The HAVOC
The Deuce™ is a 3-inch twin-tail grub with a flapping-leg design that is
supposed to move aggressively at all speeds. Ideal for use on a wide variety of jig
head shapes, The Deuce trailer moves through the water with extreme flapping
action. On rocks, across points or in the thickest cover, this bait is designed
to perform in a wide range of situations. The trailing edge of each twin-tail leg is reinforced for added
strength and contributes to the bait’s action.
“What makes the HAVOC The
Deuce different is its extended body cavity to accept a larger hook, and the
overall action of the bait’s flapping legs when it moves through the water even
at the slowest speeds,” said Gary Klein, Berkley Pro Angler. “The action and
versatility of The Deuce truly makes this bait a special tool in my arsenal and
it is available in my ten most favored colors.”
The Deuce will be available in
10 fish-attracting colors at introduction: Shady Watermelon Candy, Watermelon Red, Green Pumpkin
Sumthin, Green Pumpkin Green, Green Pumpkin, Watermelon Candy Red, Green Pumpkin
Blue, Smoke Sparkle, Smoke Sparkle Black Fleck and Cinnamon Purple Black Fleck.
The lures will retail for $3.49 and come bundled in a re-sealable 10 pack.
Conclusion: Previously when
professional anglers worked with the Berkley design team to come up with new
secret baits they were exactly that... secret. They would uses these new baits
to fish tournaments including the Classic. That all
changed a few seasons ago when Berkley decided to make available the very same baits
that the pros employed at this major event for public purchase. Now weekend
can fish the same pro-designed HAVOC lures.
Will one of these new HAVOC baits play into a major win for one of these pros
this week? It is time to find out!
