Using Jerkbaits To Locate Aggressive Bass

The guys are on a great jerkbait bite but they teach as they go, explaining how and why its working including a variety of tips on lure selection, gear variations, and how to effectively fight the fish. 

Fishing a jerkbait can be done with any rod or reel. But doing it effectively requires very specialized equipment. A rod that is limber in the mid section but with a fast tip section is key to successfully working the bait and still having the flex to fight the fish on light treble hooks. 

Jerkbaits aren't typically considered a warm water bait but you'd be surprised to know they work throughout the Summer and Fall so with the help of these tips, don't be afraid to keep throwing the jerkbait this year!
