When do the fish really start hitting jerkbaits in the fall? I got some, but never know when to throw them.

Usually whenever you start to see the shad moving shallower to the back half of coves and upper ends of lakes, along with bass suspending in 5-10ft...it’s game on.

I always have a jerkbait tied on. Always.

Jerkbaits work best for me when the water temp is between 40 and 90.

When Fork was full of grass we used to throw bronze back/orange belly rogues over the top of it from late January til mid April and clobber them! I quit using them for years but now that I'm in the aquarium (Lake Travis, etc) I throw them nearly year round. And they catch fish nearly year round.

I throw jerkbaits all year and catch fish all year on them. Only thing that changes Is depth I fish them and the speed.

Great lure for numbers and size.

Except on Alan Henry, they don’t work that well on Alan Henry. Especially don’t throw the natural shad academy jerk bait.

Throwing them on days you are on the lake work best. I haven't found them to work very well in my backyard.

As to the "too much trouble, I don't even own one" comment, I'm not surprised considering the all-knowing source. I once caught 11 keeper+ size bass in as many consecutive casts on a jerkbait just ripped out of the package; unhooking them got to be quite time consuming. I guess some might consider this too much trouble?

Found out last week that the first time you've thrown them in months, the arm gets sore... grin
