HARD JERKBAITS

-

We’re heading into autumn now and there is a combinatio­n of factors that will increase your chances of snagging your next bass on a hard jerkbait.

Firstly, the bass are sensing the drop on water temperatur­e and this will trigger them into a more aggressive feeding mode as they start to fatten up before the cold season. Secondly, the jerkbait available size and colour options are plentiful and enough to mimic the fodder fish that the bass are feeding on. Thirdly, and quite often over looked is that the bass will find it very difficult to ignore a jerkbait fished imposingly and conspicuou­sly through its domain.

The technique of fishing this lure and the tackle used can decide whether you catch fish or not, so it’s important that you get it fine-tuned for your next outing:
