PowerTeam Lures Launches Sick Stick
A sick new twist on a proven shape.
PowerTeam Lures will be releasing their newest addition, the 5" Sick Stick to their already deadly line up at this year's ICAST show in Las Vegas, Nevada. "Designing a stick style bait that allows anglers to have complete control over the fall and amount of action the bait gives off is absolutely crucial." states Bob Bernotsky, owner and designer of PowerTeam Lures. "It's no secret that bass change their minds day to day, hour to hour and sometimes minute to minute. If anglers don't adjust their presentation accordingly to suit the mood of the bass, it can make for a long (and possibly costly) day."
The 5" Sick Stick is a neutrally buoyant stick bait comprised of a square core encased in round rings. These three key elements add more flash, visual stimulant and a controllable wobble to the adjustable fall. The square core also creates a side to side swaying motion during the fall as the flat sides of the core deflect off the water. "This bait was specifically designed to be fished on a weighted wacky head for complete control" explains Bob. "When bass are in a negative mood, rig it on a 1/16 oz. weighted wacky head for an ultra-slow fall with a tight subtle wobble. For more aggressive bass rig it on a 1/8 - 3/16 oz. weighted wacky head for a more erratic swaying wobble and faster fall." Bob also stated that even though the Sick Stick was designed to be fished with a weighted wacky head, it's equally as deadly on a shakey head, a drop shot, Texas rigged or Carolina rigged. The Sick Stick will be available in 14 different colors.
PowerTeam Lures is excited for the release of the 5" Sick Stick and getting it into the hands of anglers just in time for the summer season. The functional design is what gets fishermen to try it. The excellent results is what keeps them coming back!
