On The Water: Cold Front Jerkbait Fishing

High water and cold weather won't stop these bass from crushing the jerkbait! With water temps at 43 degrees most anglers don't believe bass will feed aggressively but when bass school together they're susceptible to triggered feeding in even the coldest of water. 

Tim and Matt explain the cadence and technique to fool cold water fish into eating a jerkbait. They used two baits to catch their fish and constantly rotated colors to keep the school biting for as long as possible. They aren't the biggest fish but they prove the effectiveness of the method.
