About Berkley

Berkley® Powerbait® Rib Shad

Dynamic Swimming Action Delivered

Giant swimbaits are cool for California, but what if the waters back home don’t play well with monsters? Small swimbaits are ideal for cleaning up pressured waters or on the end of a schooling rig. The Berkley® PowerBait® Rib Shad is 4.5 inches of pure swimming action that is designed for shallow or deep applications.

When the giant California swimbaits are too big for waters at home and all of the small swimbaits are already on an umbrella rig, the Berkley® PowerBait® Rib Shad gives anglers a big-bass bait that’s just right. Fish seem insulted as the Rib Shad swims by without a care in the world, leading to punishing strikes.

Ribs line the 4.5-inch bait from nose-to-tail that rocks through the water perfectly on a small 1/8-ounce jig head or a weighted-belly hook. Simply cast around vegetation or in and around heavy cover; vary the retrieve, and let the fish dictate how the Rib Shad is presented.

Power fishermen can use the Rib Shad as a clean up bait to be used in an area believed to have been picked clean – and they will be shocked to see how many fish were left untouched.

Laced with the exclusive PowerBait formula that fish bite and won’t let go, the Rib Shad is available in 12 eye-catching colors and has an MSRP of $4.99.
