As an alternative to the Hollow Belly swimbait, Berkley offers the PowerBait Split Belly swimbait designed with collapses to allow for a wider hook gap. Pro angler BassMaster Skeet Reese says that “the Split Belly swimbait is an effective tool to use when fishing in open water or around heavy cover...when I fish the PowerBait Split Belly in open water, I tie on the appropriate belly-weight hook (recommended weights are 1/16- to 1/4-ounce) to handle the wind and cast out toward my target...once a fish has hit the bait, I let the fish take the bait down just a bit, and then I set the hook. The body collapses for an easy hookset. This is simply a great swimbait to fish.”more
