It’s no secret jerkbaits excel in cold clear water, but their effectiveness continues throughout the summer and into the late fall months. Like a lot of presentations, you want to increase the speed of retrieve in warm water. Wired2Fish’s Ryan DeChaine demonstrates the effectiveness of fishing jerkbaits with a fast cadence to trigger reaction strikes from smallmouth bass that were denying a slow jerk-jerk-pause retrieve. He discusses lure selection, rod and line considerations, and why you should keep a jerkbait tied on nearly all year. Equipment used: Megabass Levante 7’ Flat Side Special rod, Megabass Ito Vision 110 Jr. Jerkbait, and 12lb Sufix Siege Clear Monofilament. This video was filmed out of the new Lund 1875 Pro-V Bass XS.
