BASSMASTER CLASSIC CHAMPIONSHIP GEAR

Berkley Stunna stuns the bass fishing world.

After he won his first Bassmaster Classic in 2020, Berkley pro Hank Cherry and the Berkley bait scientists set out to develop the ultimate jerkbait. Using a jerkbait is one of Cherry’s favorite ways to catch bass and a presentation with which the North Carolina native has become synonymous. And he knew Berkley could help him develop one that scientifically works better. And work better it did, this new jerkbait helped Hank become the 4th person ever to win back to back Bassmaster Classic championships. The new Berkley Stunna features Berkley’s first tungsten weight-transfer system and a unique brass block weighting system that delivers a slow sink and slight shimmy in the water. With an action that engages quicker with a larger roll, increased bill durability and ultra-sharp Fusion19 hooks, the Stunna comes in 14 colors and two different dive depths. The 112 size runs 3 to 6 feet deep while the 112+1 runs 6-10 feet deep. Both styles weigh 1/2 ounce and have a fall rate of 1 foot per 8 seconds.

The Berkley Powerbait Stunna 112

Maximum darting action and easy 180 degree head turns and side flash when jerked, dual brass weights and a tungsten weight transfer system for increased casting distance, ultra-sharp Fusion19 hooks, Hank Cherry’s jerkbait knowledge, and the Berkley team's design expertise, the Stunna is a must-have!

The Berkley Powerbait Stunna 112+1

The Berkley Stunna is available in two sizes, the 112 (3’-6’ diving depth) and the 112 +1 (6’-10’ Diving depth). Both styles weigh 1/2 ounce and have a fall rate of 1 foot per 8 seconds. The Stunna delivers a slow sink and shimmy on the pause to entice less-aggressive fish into biting, and crisp darting actions when jerked that'll drive any fish crazy.
