Underwater footage shows us which jerkbaits look the best but can you replicate it on your own? Today Matt teaches when to use each style of jerkbait, which colors to try, and some tricks to get the best action out of the baits. If you’re ready to catch bass this Fall on a jerkbait, this video will help you do it!
Fall is prime time for a jerkbait. Bass are aggressively targeting baitfish and will continue to do so into the Winter. While some lures may fade away as the water cools the jerkbait will continue to work throughout the Winter months. The key is understanding the cadences for cool water as well as which baits will give the best action.
TacticalBassin keeps it simple with 5 jerkbaits that offer consistent actions at a variety of depths. To further simplify it, they focus on 3 color profiles to meet every circumstance. Make sure you stick around for the tips about replacement hooks and the line trick to get the best action out of every jerkbait! It doesn’t take boxes of lures to catch a jerkbait fish, you can do it!
Below is a breakdown of the baits and equipment discussed in the video. Below each bait you’ll find color recommendations that meet each of the 3 color profiles that work nationwide.
