Jerkbait Suggestions Needed

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for suspending jerks that run no deeper than 3'.  What I've found so far are the Lucky Craft Flash Minnow and Jackall Squad Minnow.  Any others you know of that run shallow and suspend throw them up here for me and I'll check 'em out.

Thinking a little out side the box ~

 

Rapala Sub Walk - A real sleeper of a bait.

 

It's gets very little fan fare but is one of my most productive baits - especially on brown bass.

Yo-Zuri 3DB Jerkbait, they also make the 3DBminow which is not a suspending lure but the jerkbait is and it runs 1' to 3' max. I also know the Yo-Zuri Jerk-O ran exactly at 3' on 8lb line and about 2.5' on 10lb but they are discontinued but you can still get some on ebay, they didn't sell too well but I loved the action which was basically dart left and dart right and stop dead.

Throw heavier line on 3-5ft suspension jerkbaits, it opens your options. Pop your line up to keep the bait higher.

I second the damiki slim jack suggestion. From Damiki website: The Slim Jack, when used as a jerk bait, it is a minnow on adrenaline. The action is as unique as it gets! The Slim Jack will cover 8 to 16 inches in depth and has a very slow rising action while paused

 

I have had some success "walking the dog" action with this lure, while it stays roughly a foot below the surface.

Lucky Craft makes an entire line of Pointer Jerk Baits that run very shallow

 

Look for the designator of "SR" or "SSR" at the end of the model number

 

Check the links below.
