Bass fisherman hype the use of jerkbaits during the prespawn period, and often shelve them once the spawn begins in the backs of creek arms and bays. As Elite Series pro Dave Lefebre explains, you’re missing out on big post spawn females that pull out of the shallows and scatter along secondary points and the first drop of transition banks. These areas are big bass highways leading out to near and offshore haunts. Some bass like a jerkbait fished fast, some slow during this recovery period. A jerkbait give you the ability figure out the bite by making retrieve adjustments on the fly – few lure categories are this versatile.
