Castaic Baits Jerky J's 8pk
Featuring a soft yet durable plastic construction, the Castaic Jerky J swoops and glides beautifully with or without any weight added. Its thick mid-section, protruding dorsal fin, and thin straight tail cause it to veer wildly from side to side when twitched, and each bait is hand painted for maximum realism. Fish it on light line, and let the line go slack on the pause between twitches. That's when most of the strikes occur. Also experiment with different retrieves. Available in some great fish-catching colors, the Castaic Jerky J soft jerkbaits deliver the action and fish attraction that big bass can't resist.

Comments: The best "Fluke" lure I've ever used. Fish it weightless and twitch it and let it die. I catch more fish on the die. I use Sebile soft weights on the hook shank to increase the depth that it runs. It has and awesome action and is more durable than others I've used. Last year on The Upper Mississippi, I caught Walleyes, Largemouth and Smallmouth twitching them along the rip-rap lined banks. Try them, you'll love them.

Comments: Much better than any fluke. Twitch it & then let it die. The weight of a superline hook is perfect to make it sink like a dying fish. When smallies won't hit a hard jerk bait, they will come from far off to hit this as it falls. Skip it under docks. Fish it in milfoil pockets. The weedlessness of this lure makes it possible to fish anywhere. But the dying action that it has is what triggers strikes. Smallies, Large mouth, even walleyes attack this thing because it's so natural. Some times I'll use one of the soft Sebile sinkers to twitch it down 10 feet or more.

Comments: Great for twitching like Flukes. But i usually drop shot with these. Works well

Comments: Like a fluke, but great in super clear water. Throw it on 8-10lb with a light belly weight hook, like 1/16oz. Shimmies side to side like a senko on the fall, and responds to light twitches of the rod tip well. Not as versatile as the fluke, but a good specialty bait.
