Going Small For Big Bites
You may catch a lunker bass on the larger jerkbaits during the winter, but that might be the only bite you obtain throughout the day. I do not have the patience to fish 6 to eight hrs for one bite, so if bass continue to disregard my larger jerkbaits, I scale down to smaller sized versions like the Googan Squad Jr.

The smaller jerkbaits appear to produce best for me during tough angling problems, such as when bass have been hammered with angling pressure by people throwing the larger jerkbaits or in gin clear water on a tranquil day.

Googan Squad Jr. Scout in Yellow Perch The Bonus Bites Are Always Nice Another bonus offer of a smaller sized jerkbait is that it will catch other gamefish such as crappie as well as white bass.

One distinction is that I prefer a sweep-and-pause retrieve with the smaller sized lures. After cranking the appeal to its maximum diving depth, I pause it for a number of secs on a semi-taut line and then gradually move my pole a couple of feet so the jerkbait simulates a slow-moving baitfish.

I prefer a 6 1/2-foot tool action rotating pole as well as a 2500 size rotating reel filled with either 8-pound fluorocarbon or monofilament line. Fluorocarbon is my line choice when I desire the lure to sink and penetrate much deeper in the coldest water, however I switch over to monofilament when I desire the jerkbait to suspend or somewhat climb in water starting to warm by late wintertime.
