Cold Water Jerkbait Fishing: Everything You Need To Know

If you're ready to catch more jerkbait fish, this is your video! Matt breaks down Which Baits, How To Work Them, and a whole lot more in this in-depth look at jerkbaits. He keeps his bait selection simple, makes his gear choices easy, and focuses on triggering the bass into biting.

If you've ever wanted to catch a jerkbait fish, now is the time to get out there and make it happen. The sharp cooling trend at the end of Fall triggers an aggressive feeding desire in bass. Couple that response with a desire to conserve energy in the cold and the jerkbait doubles up on effectiveness.

The handful of baits Matt describes in this video are deadly! Used independently they're great but when combined together you have a simple system that can be adapted to changing temperatures, depths, and cover.

Below you'll find a breakdown of Matt's favorite baits, equipment, hook upgrades, and even a color list of some of the colors that he has seen the most success with.

Jerkbait Review: Megabass Kanata and Jackall Dowzvido

Matt reviews two new jerkbaits that really stood out from the crowd this Winter. The Jackall Dowzvido and the Megabass Kanata are both great ripbaits to add to your arsenal for the Spring and Prespawn. 

The Jackall Dowzvido stook out because of the great color patterns, excellent side to side rolling action, and amazing castability. If you're looking for a compact jerkbait to dive deeper and fool those finicky fish, this is the one for you! 

The Megabass Kanata is an oversized jerkbait but it fishes much smaller than it really is. If you're looking to upsize your catch, this is an awesome option! With a ton of flash and roll to attract fish, this bait is sure to be a winner!

Jerkbaits are an awesome way to catch big fish during the cold water months. As bass move into the shallows in Spring the jerkbait becomes even more effective! These two baits will be a great addition to any bass fisherman's arsenal.
