Favorite Jerkbaits?

Recommended Posts

Found some dirt cheap Lucky Craft Flash Pointer 115's - Ghost Minnow, Lightning Pointer 98XR's Bone Pro-Blue, and 1 BD Jerkbait BDJ-115 in Gizzard Shad.

I've never used Jerkbaits that much. What do you guys know about these I've listed?

What is your favorite Jerkbait? I fish a lot rip raps, tail-races of dams, and lakes/ponds.

Where do you normally toss them?

toss em anywhere you are willing to do so! work it past any ambush points since it is a reaction bait. i like megabass 110's and variations of them (110+1, magnum, jr, and so on)

Mostly Megabass, Lucky Craft, & Strike King for me.

Nice find. Love all LC pointer and Megabass offerings. I have thrown dozens of different brands and styles and keep coming back to these brands and fish them 90% of the time I am on the water. Fish them anywhere!

 

A-Jay - I'll give you $100 for the lot :)

I've had my best luck fishing Spro and Smithwick jerkbaits.

I have several Lucky Craft pointers in various colors in the 78 and 100 size that do pretty good. I also use some Rapala Husky Jerks.

Apparently you're having trouble finding one that catches fish...

 

 

OP... my box includes LC Pointer 100 & 78, Slender Pointer 97, Silent Pointer 95, Flash Pointer 115, Staysee 90, Rapala X-rap 10, Shadow Rap deep & Jackall Rerange 115.  Traded away anything that had Megabass written on it.

Well, there's no doubt about.

Think you could point it out for me ?

I'd really appreciate all the help I can get.

I'm a hack.

LOL. I hope to get to hack level at some point.  

I'll take something perchy/gillie from one of the boxes to the left for $600 Alex...

Good eye.

And that ST-35 has two points spread out wider making it a flat out fish snatcher.

I have not ~ 

At 3/8 oz might be tough sledding getting that one through the 'breeze' I often contend with - especially early season.

I've tried the trick darter and its not my favorite. Its a nice looking bait but doesn't cast far or dive very deep. Sold them. Just bought an ito shiner since that is one I have not fished yet.

They're not too bad... They have a weight transfer system in them, so they're easier than, say, a Pointer 78. They definitely fish way above their weight.

I like 6th sense jerkbaits, I had a Strike Pro Inquisitor SP that I loved (until I lent it to a friend on a river trip and he cast it straight into a pine tree). The more it flicks out to the side and does loopty loops, the more I like it.

Lucky Craft, Jackal, and Megabass. Not necessarily in that order cause I’ll let the fish decide...

Lucky craft, duo realis, rapala, rick clunn and kvd are all great jerkbaits.  If I had to only carry one ot would be a rapala shadow rap

Most of the time, I throw Megabass, Lucky Craft, Duo Realis and Rapalas.

 

However, I have been pleasantly surprised by the Livetarget rainbow smelt.  Not even sure where I got it, because I've always avoided the brand (thought the baitballl stuff was gimicky, so I put my nose in the air when I passed them in the aisle.)  But I must have gotten one years ago in a LTB or MTB and it fishes every bit as well as anything else I use.  And for the price, I will be getting more.
