Final thoughts


The Berkley PowerBait Sick Fish is a good bit different by design from other baits in its category, which I always applaud. But different for the sake of being different really doesn’t move product in the long run. I can say when it comes to the Sick Fish, different has a purpose.

The unique tail design and added effort in placing fin after fin after fin on the body resulted in an effective swimbait. The Sick Fish tracks well, swims true and gets bit. Those are really the only three requirements I have when sampling a swimmer. So I like it and it’s a bait I’m glad I finally got around to.
