Versatile Fishing Technique

Jerkbaits are designed to be fished with a jerking motion imparted by the angler's rod tip. Here's a basic retrieve method:

  1. Cast the jerkbait towards your target area.
  2. Let the bait sit motionless for a few seconds, mimicking a stunned baitfish.
  3. Twitch or jerk the rod tip sharply, causing the bait to dart erratically.
  4. Reel in the slack line slowly between jerks, allowing the bait to pause and wobble.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4, varying your retrieve speed and jerk intensity to entice bites.
