"The scientists at Berkley have been working on PowerBait for years, constantly making it better. There's absolutely no soft plastic on the market that catches more fish." Larry Nixon 1983 Bassmaster Classic® Champion
You wanted the original colors back, we listened! Same color names, made the way you want. And, with the Berkley PowerBait Advantage, fish hold on 18 times longer! The go-to bait for serious smallmouth anglers. Tentacles provide subtle, lively motion. Hollow tube can be filled with attractant for a more powerful presentation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luv2fishSmallWater Thanks for yet ANOTHER great Berkley product!!!
Being on a serious mission this season to catch a trophy Largemouth, I decided to try a few new techniques. Having used Berkley Powerbait Worms in the past with success, I decided to try some tubes. After reading the reviews of this product, I picked up a pack of 4" tubes in the Smoke color and Blue Fleck color. Now I know that most folks would hop these around rocks or just crawl 'em along the bottom, however, I decided to "think outside of the box" a little. While bank fishing a favorite small pond, I crawled my Smoke tube filled with a Zoom Tube Rattle across the top of a thick grassy mat. After about my fifth cast...BAM...my biggest largmouth (to date) broke the grass canopy and engulfed the Powerbait Tube! She was 20" long, had a 15.5 girth and weighed 5lb - 5oz! I released her to play another day!
Berkley products rarely let me down and I know these tubes along with other Berkley products will help me land a true trophy sooner or later!

Took my boys (11 & 7) to an NBAA kids fishing tournament. They both used the pumpkinseed color, and in 2 hours they caught 24 smallmouth, including one that was 20" 4.5 lbs. I am going to stock up on these

I love to Texas rig these, and like any other Powerbait product, fish love these too.

All tube baits that I have ever used are hollow. These particular baits are hollow with 100% certainty. This is one of the great qualities of the bait. When the fish bites it, it squishes as if it were real.
I use Bass Pro Shop's XPS Tender Tube hooks which have the weight on them already. I like to use the 1/4 oz with the 4/0 hook. The quarter weight will make it fall fast, but if you want it to fall slower you want to get the 1/16 weight with the 2/0 hook or the 1/8 weight with the 3/0 hook.
