Berkley Unveils New Topwater Plug for Saltwater Lineup

Ideal for early spring trips in the back bays or late autumn outings in the salt ponds and rivers, Berkley’s newest addition to their saltwater lineup, the Drift Walker, is highlighted by an enticing “walk-the-dog” action. The topwater lure is armed with heavy duty, extra-sharp Fusion19 treble hooks and the side-to-side cadence is sure to generate explosive strikes from schoolie bass and bluefish,

COLUMBIA, S.C. (Sept. 28, 2023) – Packed with years of extensive testing and continuous innovation, Berkley’s line of saltwater hard baits allows anglers to excel on the water’s surface and at inshore depths with their newly released Drift Walker Saltwater and new sizes for the J-Walker Saltwater, Cutter Saltwater, and Juke Saltwater. With this diverse array of sizes and shapes, anglers can adopt a more strategic approach when targeting nearshore species. 

The line not only enhances casting distance but also delivers unparalleled action with the design of each bait. This action is a proven magnet for even the most elusive predatory fish, ensuring a heightened level of angling success. Berkley’s complete selection of saltwater hard baits are also equipped with anti-rust Fusion19 3X treble hooks and stainless steel hardware to withstand corrosive marine environments.(NEW) Berkley Drift Walker Saltwater: Ideal for those slick, calm days when you need a more finesse approach, the Drift Walker Saltwater provides a subtle action that will trigger even the wariest of fish. Constructed with a slim hydrodynamic profile, the lure produces a long walking stride to maximize time in the strike zone without moving forward, which is perfect to lure shy fish that won’t commit to other baits.
