favorite spring jerkbaits
« on: Dec 22, 2011, 10:05 AM »
Just curious what jerkbaits have been working well for others during March-April? I've had some luck with Smithwick rougues, BPS XPS minnow and Storm thundersticks. The BPS XPS minnow worked well last year but every few cast the front treble will catch the line and it ends up being a wasted cast.

Lucky Craft Pointer in Ghost Minnow.  The big size (Pointer 100 SP is what it says on the package-just checked).  I have about 20 pointers in different colors, styles and sizes and that one is by far the best.  Most of my friends I think would agree.

Live pointers and X-Raps for Smallies anyways. I never come off the river to play with largemouth that much in those months :laugh: sounds like if kingfisher and I pooled our money together with what we have spent on JB's we could get a small boat, lol.

I bought a lucky craft pointer and it cast great and looks awesome in the water. Unfortunatly i just can't seem to find any numbers of bass to test it on this year. I've been out three times and have only caught four so far. I guess I do better in March when it's cold and snowy not 80.LOL.

i usually rotate between the xraps and LP's. some days they want one and not the other.
On the Xraps i use olive, silver/blk, gold/blk, goby, and chartruse mossback (special Cabelas color they dont figgen make anymore, down to my last one).
LP's I use ghost minnow, chartreuse shad, and brownie (also a cabelas color)
I have others colors but those seem to be the most consistant. I have a brown trout colored LP i got off ebay that looks great and should work in the river but never got a look at it like i said above i mostly use these for smallies right now on the river, temps around 55. The only bad thing I have seen with the LP's is that the smallies really like to beat the hell outta them and snap them in half at ;D the wires, and at 20 bucks a pop that really sucks, lol

Perch flavored X-Raps did me well this past weekend.  It was pretty cold, so I went with the suspending jerkbait.  Otherwise I like to throw lipless crankers - Reddish/brown or sliver or gold with black backs

I've been fishing the crap out of husky jerks for years. They are on my top ten list for baits to cover lots of water!

Finally had a good 2012 season jerkbait bite. It was a more "normal" spring day with cold temp. and a strong breeze. I caught 9 on the Lucky Craft pontier. thanks again for the suggestion. Boy that bait cast well, even into the wind with a baitcaster. Husky jerks were one of my favorite jerkbaits because they cast better than some of the others i tried, but I think the pointer cast better. I guess they should for the cost of them.LOL.
