Winter Jerkbait Fishing Tips

Jerkbaits are one of the few reaction baits that work consistently, even at the lowest water temps. Matt explains the differences between jerkbait models and why they're able to draw strikes. He also breaks down the gear needed and cadences to use to catch the most fish this Winter.

Keep an eye out for Friday's video as well! On Friday we'll explore Bass behavior underwater and watch them react to a jerkbait. Observing their behavior is VERY eye opening but first you have to understand the baits, the cadences, and the proper gear. Below is a breakdown of the baits and equipment we use for jerkbaits this time of year.
