Summer Jerkbait Fishing

Recommended Posts

Especially when there's Smallies around, speed it up and keep it moving! One region I've had success with a jerkbait involves current and riprap under and around bridges, including the first set of pilings in both sides.

Let the fish tell you what action they are craving, whether it be crazy erratic and fast or slow and methodical or maybe somewhere in-between.  Also use multiple types jerk baits, sometimes the old school Rapalas are better with no rattles, other times large jerks with rattle make them bite.

I have better luck with the x-rap type jerkbaits fished fast and snappy in the summer rather than the husky jerks and similar.

Plastic jerk baits work good in the summer months. I use a light wire worm hook and maybe a little split shot ahead of it if I wanted some weight. When fished fast on the surface they can be killer over grasses and pads when bass are busting up on the surface. I throw 2 of them at the same time when fish a schooling.
