The Berkley Havoc Grass Pig is a small soft plastic swimbait designed specifically for heavy vegetation. The bait shares a likeness with the Reaction Innovations Skinny Dipper. For anglers who are inexperienced with the Skinny Dipper, the bait is most widely used as a soft topwater buzzbait of sorts. Anglers faced with acres of shallow water vegetation use the bait to find needles in a haystack, or in this case, bass in a grass field. This style of bait is considered a staple of Okeechobee anglers who find this technique to be successful for locating both quality and quantities while covering a large amount of water. Bobby Lane designed the bait with his native Florida waters in mind and anglers have caught on quickly. One of the troubles when fishing the topwater buzz style swimbaits is the durability, while Berkley has made strides to correct this, its unfortunately an inevitable issue. Berkley provides some relief however when you look at their price compared to similar baits - that is their strategy to combat the durability issues. Purchasing a bottle of Mend-It, the non-glue soft plastic repair formula, would be our advice to extend the life of the baits. The optimal rigging for fishing the 5" Grass Pig Swimbait in heavy vegetation would include a five power rod, 65lb braided line, a paycheck baits headcase, and a 4/0-5/0 screw lock swimbait hook. The 3.5" version has already become a go to swimbait for Alabama and umbrella rig applications. The Standard Grass Pig swimbait is 5" in length and comes 6 per pack. The Havoc Grass Pig Jr. is 3.5" and comes 10 per pack. Each pack contains six baits.
