Jerk baits

Recommended Posts

When I'm chunking jerkbaits for browns, I like something in the 4-5 inch range. Black and white is always a good color.  As well as black and gold. I've done well on rainbow trout Rapalas. White with purple bellys and black with red bellys have been my best choices for brown trout. With the flood gates open right now, I'd be chunking something mostly white. Might be some shad coming through the gates. I'm mainly a jig fisherman myself, but I still like to throw a big ole jerkbait here and there. Good luck.

Hopefully JoeD will chime in.  I have used Rapala CD-5 through CD-9 with some success, but I know the true stick bait guys have much better baits then that.

An HJ10 or HJ12 sized Husky jerk in Tennessee Shad or Silver Blue has always been one of my favorites on Taneycomo. They both have an orange belly and I'm just partial to anything with an orange belly when it comes to bass and trout.

I had a lot of luck throwing that Silver Blue on Pomme de Terre a couple of years. Turns out they didn't care what color it was as long as the belly was orange.
