power hawgs

Recommended Posts

Just saw in one of the spring fishing catalogs that Berkley is bringing back the original Power Hawg, 4 & 5 inch models. The Bungee model never quite did the same job for me as the original. Hopefully they will offer it in the 100 count bags for a little discount for bulk purchase.

I think Scott Rook won the BASS major tournament on the Arkansas River with this bait this past summer, could be the reason their bringing it back. I could be totally wrong though too.

Hiya -

Yep, just saw them in the Berkley catalog. Glad they're back. I like 'em too. Great flipping bait or on a football head. I will sometimes take the 4" ones and yank off the middle twister tail legs and fish them on a ball head too. Sort of like a paddle tail with two paddles. Great cold front jig...

I did not, however, see 100 ct bags listed...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

i have never fished berkely hawg but have fished brush hawgs and i like those cause they catch big fish. HOWever i love bungee worms because they have a tail that curls back up like a night crawler would when you are not moving them. They have built in action. which means the less you do the more the bait does for you. most of my bites come when it is just sitting there. i also like to use it when it is hotter than doom out and the fish have seen it all. It looks greatly natural. ike

I can't find them - looked for 2 years. My buddy found a couple packs at the Brainerd Fleet Farm last year.

The bungee worm when pulled through the water straightens out the tail, but when you stop it the tail slowly curves back. Like someone doing the come here finger motion. Did that make any sense at all? I dunno, but they were the cats meow. On my cubicle here at work I have a pic of a 21" largie caught on the almighty bungee. Good finesse presentation. Now I use the regular worm and it still catches fish, but not like the bungee.

It all started one fine day when my buddies and I caught around 60-70 bass that day on that bait. Of course we've never had a day like that after that, so it couldn't have been great timing, or stable weather, or some other cosmic factor. It had to be the bungee grin.gif Well that's the word on the street.

But bungee worms? That's all I want and yes I'll take 100 if it's what I'm looking for.

Thanks FF

Hiya -

I've never done all that well with the 7-inch Bungee worms. The 4-inchers can be really good on a drop shot or splitshot rig though.

If you watch the Pure Fishing factory outlet HSOforum, they pop up on there from time to time.

Speaking of soft plastics - anyone locally (Twin Cities) carry Producto products? I'm almost out of Tournament Grubs. I know I can order them online, but I hate paying for shipping...

Cheers,

if you like Berkley stuff you might start your season fishing Spirit Lake or Okibogee. Right accross from the Berkely plant there is a factory outlet with bulk and great prices.

Somebody asked abt the bungee worm. it's unique because it tapers to a real sharp little tail, kinda like the tail on a fluke. the tail will quiver as the you let the jigworm fall

No luck, I asked several of my bassin' connections, no hook-up, no pun intended. I think you need to be south of the Mason/Dixon line to stumble across any Producto lures in shop. Place an order and let me piggy back it and I'll cover the shipping.....

    • I bought my first boat last September and I have a question about weight distribution. I was warned that it's a heavy boat by the seller, he called it a tank. In a good way. It's very sturdy in big water. So that's cool, but the first time I had a third adult hop in, the boat basically turned into a barge and just plowed water. With two "hefty" adults, gear and a cooler I have no complaints. It gets up on a plane no problem and scoots along just like you'd expect it to. Adding a third, non-hefty adult and gear was too much for it though. It couldn't get up on plane and the front end just plowed water.    It has a 24v trolling motor on the bow. The two marine 12v batteries for the trolling motor are also in the front, not all the way in front, but close. A buddy said he'd try moving the batteries to the rear. So what I'm wondering is, how much weight can you put in the rear of these boats and is this a good idea? Assuming they'd even physically fit. The main battery is already in the rear.    As a comparison, I have a 17' with a 60 HP 2 stroke and my dad has a 16' with a 50 HP 4 stroke, both tillers. My dad's boat slows down a bit with all of us in it, but easily gets up on plane and operates normally. His boat is a little more on the bare bones side and his motor is a good 10 years newer, but otherwise it's basically the same setup, but smaller, and it moves all of us around very well. This makes me wonder if my boat is or should be capable of more.    I also thought of the possibility that my old 1997 2 stroke is just tired (is that a thing?), but it seems to run very well. I also took it to what I think is a good repair shop and they assured me that I have the correct prop.    Here's all the info I can think of and a few pics.   1996 Alumacraft Competitor 170 1997 Mercury 60 HP 2 Stroke (60 HP is the max HP rating) 85" Beam (or close to that, can't remember for sure)   Try moving the batteries? Save up for a new motor? Or that's just the way it's going to be? Any advice from the community would be very much appreciated!  
    • Hello from the NW Angle! Areas of slush on trails in Minnesota are refreezing overnight and are still in good condition if well-traveled.  Walleye action is getting better every day, with mornings and late evening being best.  Rippin’ raps and buckshots are enticing violent strikes; 18-22 ft of water is key. Big northern pike are hitting jiggin’ spoons and tip ups with large baits. Anglers venturing into Canada continue to find schooled Crappies and big walleye deeper into 30+ feet. A slow presentation is most effective for catching crappies.  Until next week, Sunset Lodge
    • Yesterday the exterior lights under the side mirrors, all pick up bed lights and the tailgate light would intermittently turn on and go off.  I checked to make sure all doors were shut and checked all the lighting options in the vehicle.  The light issue killed my battery and it is very slow to take a charge.  Has anyone seen something like this?  I checked on line and didn't see any mention of an issue like this.   My truck is a 2017 Ford F150 Lariat with the 3.5 ecoboost.  I called the dealership and they said they could get it in the week of April 22.  A lot of good that is going to do me when the vehicle is dead.
    • Thanks guys, looks like I need to give it a try!
    • Last summer my son caught a 30.5" walleye on a local lake. It was a hot day so we put it back pretty quickly. We decided to surprise him with a Replica. Fiber Tech out of Nisswa did an amazing job! Only took 6 weeks once I made the call. I will use them again.
    • Parise and Ek hurt, slowly fading in the standings and in the midst of a rebuild, the golf clubs aren't out yet but the boys have been thinking about getting them out and dusting them off.
