question about fishing jerk baits in tournaments

Recommended Posts

Recently, I bought a package of "Slurpee" jerkbaits... I have been getting some great reactions from the bass on my small lake at home...Has anyone ever used them in a tournament? What was your results and opinions of their use?  Which "slurpees" did you use? I will be fishing in 2 tournaments in the next 3 weeks and would like some opinions...Thank you

I have fished jerk baits in a few tourneys but they are usually early, early, early, spring baits for me around here. Once the water gets above 65 I usually switch over to my normal fishing patterns. If you are getting fish to bite them though go for it might be the bait that works for you.

Well, the fish don't know its a tournament, they just continue on as they do day after day. Rule of thumb says a bigger lake will be colder, so thats good if you want to use a jerkbait. Here in Michigan the water isnt over 60 yet so they're still wrecking them, moreso than in the south where the water flies from 50 to 80 in a month.

Whats wrong with flipping docks with soft jerk baits in the summer heat? or shallow water bays

Nothing....if it could potentially be the winning pattern.

Exactly. I dont worry too much about sticking certain baits with season,  all baits work as long as you can find fish that will take them. In most cases in a tournment, you win because you did something nobody else did.
