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.
