“THE RIGHT WAY TO WAKE” In the right sit­u­a­tions, a stick bait­style wake bait is ca­pa­ble of win­ning tour­na­ments –

Stick bait or jerk­bait-style wake baits such as the Bomber Long A are spe­cialty top­wa­ter lures that, while slower to fish and less ob­nox­ious than their walk­ing stick bait coun­ter­parts, are ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing big weights and big money when fished in the proper sit­u­a­tion. Gen­er­ally, they’re clear-wa­ter killers in the pres­pawn sea­son on moun­tain reser­voirs, but they have other ap­pli­ca­tions, too. The keys, ac­cord­ing to FLW Tour pros Koby Kreiger and Anthony Gagliardi, are to iden­tify the best con­di­tions and learn to make the bait wake prop­erly.
