When I first started fishing, I was all about fishing natural baits. As I’ve gained confidence in my fishing skills, I’ve gravitated more and more to artificial baits.
Some of my favorite artificial baits are made by Berkley. In some cases, I’ve even found them to outfish live bait!
Berkeley has a long history of innovation and quality in the artificial baits business. They spend a lot of resources on product development. Much of their new product development is fueled by the relationship that Berkley has with professional anglers.
One of those relationships is with Bassmaster pro Brandon Palaniuk. Brandon is known as a versatile angler, one who’s not married to any one style or approach.
The Berkley Havoc Money Maker is a new bait designed by Brandon to be fished in a number of ways. Learn about this exciting new bait in this article from In Fisherman.
Brandon Palaniuk of Hayden, Idaho, had a hand in creating it. And he is a professional tournament angler who competes on the Bassmaster Elite Series. Knowledgeable observers of the goings on in the tournament world often proclaim that Palaniuk is one of the sports’ most versatile anglers. Thus, there are spells when he wields a spinning outfit and a finesse bait – such as the Havoc Money Maker.
It is a 4 1/2-inch worm. In the center of its torso, there is a half-inch section that replicates an earthworm’s clitellum.
