2008 ISE San Mateo
Kicking off the Season with the 2008 International Sportsmen's Expo San Mateo
Jigs: In addition to the new Powerbait Swimbaits berkley also got back into
the jig business with the introduction of the coolest new jigs of the season.
Like the swimbaits the jigs are sold in packs with application specific jigheads
and matching trailers. The trailers are infused with Powerbait scent, and each
pack even comes with extra skirts.
Mark shows us the new Berkley Jigs
The jigs themselves feature a very unique
painted head complete with 3d "angry eyes" and an enhanced painted finish. From
multiple angles the jigs take on the appearance of different prey ranging from
crawfish to amphibians.
Each pack comes with a unique
sculpted jig two trailers and extra skirts
Our favorite was the Gripper
jig which featured twin tail trailers and and awesome frog faced features. These
jig packs are in production now and will also start showing up on store shelves
in about two weeks. Each pack will retail for 6.99 to 7.99.
