Berkley Havoc Sick Fish Swimbaits
Looks Great - Lacks Action
This thing looks absolutely amazing, but the action is almost non-existent. Not a HUGE deal, I mean you can add your own action with a heavy, popping jighead for example... but in my experience this is not for finesse at all: and therefore not as versatile as a standard tube or fluke.
Did I mention it looks amazing though?
It does. It looks flippin' amazing.

I bought these in summer 2014 for fishing smaller lakes and ponds. Texas rigged them and used them as a slow sinking jerkbait. I had largemouths and pickerel slam this thinking it was an injured baitfish. I was only able to attract a 2 pound chain pickerel in a shallow weedy area with this lure.

Best Bait Ever Made
This is by far the best bait ever made. The quality is A+; you can catch 10+ fish on each bait (very durable). The action is somewhat subtle which is what I look for in a swimbait. The color patterns are fantastic (swamp gas and light hitch being my favorites). I always have one of these tied on my line. Actually just purchased a separate casting combo just for the Sick Fish. Do yourself a favor; do NOT leave home without one of these tied on your line. Thanks Berkley for such a GREAT bait. I own well over 200 of these now (in the 4" and 3" versions). With the durability of these baits I honestly believe its a lifetime supply. The Sick Fish is my go to bait and has never let me down.
