Two mornings of jerking Taney

Recommended Posts

Fished the jerk bait on a trip yesterday morning and then again this morning with a friend from high school and his son.  I was in Boy Scouts with this friend and his father was our Scout Master.  I had the pleasure of taking them on a meet hunt yesterday afternoon too. Three generations of them.  Anyways, back to the jerk bait fishing.  Both mornings were cold and no wind with water running.  Yesterday was 1/2 unit and this morning they had it up to 3 for a bit.  The bite was crazy good.  Yesterday a 20 inch rainbow, several smaller ones, a couple of stinking bass, and one big brown lost right at the boat.  Today was good also.  We boated 6 small mouth, 3 kentuckies, a 23 inch walleye, one 20 1/4 inch rainbow, a 15 inch brown and several 12-17 inch bows.  Best bite was from cable to outlet 3.  Good bites on the north side, south side and right down the middle. Threw custom painted mega bass 110 +1 knock off baits in French pearl, ghost shad and rainbow trout flavors.  I love some moving water this time of year.

Question Mr doty... could a person do this from shore very effectively?

To Duane's evidence above I'll say I fish them more while wading than I ever have from a boat.

I also can say I've fished them more at night than during the day.

Mind if I ask what pound line and what type of retrieve you are using on the jerkbaits?

6 pound trilene xl.  Some good jerks to get it down then twitches and pauses.
