Recommended Posts

Got one word for ya.

Rapala.

The original floating Rapala was, is, and will continue to be one the best jerkbaits at any price.

No doubt it is a great jerkbait, however anything short of spinning tackle isn't going to cast them either as the 11 is 3/16oz and the 13 is 1/4oz.

I maybe should have been more specific, I would like to use these jerkbaits in shallow, stained water around cover and want them to be able to be casted with light/medium bait casting gear.  Preferablly around the 3/8oz-1/2oz area.

Thanks.

If you want a good floating jerkbait, get some Bomber Long A's.

4 1/2" long, 1/2 oz. casts like a rocket. Dives 2'-3'.

The countdown will not suspend.  Once you stop reeling it will continue to fall.

Can't say enough about the original rapala. It is a go to for me in the spring.

If you are on a budget but want an excellent jerk, Bomber Long As are great.  There are floating and suspending models.  I really like the Tim Horton models.  They look great and have good hooks.  Nice actions, too.
