The Powerbait Pit Boss from Berkley Fishing

"Hands down the Berkley Powerbait Pit Boss softbait is always in my boat," said Reese. "The Pit Boss is a fish catching machine. It is such a versatile lure and can be fished in a variety of ways.

 

"It was originally designed as a compact pitching and flipping bait, with the ribs to displace water, the arms for movement, and the hook slot. It is also excellent to fish deeper on a Chompers wobble-head football jig, on the back of a swim jig, swim it by itself or as a jig trailer. It is a terrific lure. You can now get it in the PowerBait line as well as the original Havoc version."

 

Berkley 100% Fluorocarbon Line

"I always have a spool of 8-pound Berkley 100% fluorocarbon fishing line," said Reese. "It's my go-to leader material when I am finesse fishing. I'll spool with Berkley nanofil as my main line and the fluorocarbon leader.

 

"It's the perfect line combination when there is a finesse bite, or I need to go light to save the day. It's what I usually have ready for shaky head fishing, drop-shotting, or swimming a grub."

 

Berkley Bottom Hopper Finesse Bait

"The 6.25-inch Berkley Havoc Bottom Hopper is my go-to finesse bait," said Reese. "Whether it's on a Carolina rig, or any other finesse rig, I have them in the boat. I have a variety of colors with me, and am ready if there is going to be a finesse bite."
