What’s The Deal With The Twitch, Twitch Pause?

Although the cadence stays the same for jerking every one of these baits, the strength of the jerk and also length of time out varies with each attraction relying on water and climate condition and also the mood of the fish.

Below’s a consider the various shiver, jerk, stop presentations you can utilize for the adhering to attractions.

Twitch, twitch, stop. I have actually done numerous write-ups with professional bass anglers explaining the cadence they utilize for shivering lures as well as they all point out the exact same series of jerking their lure two times and then pausing it. Whether they are utilizing topwater poppers, strolling surface area plugs, Flukes or putting on hold stickbaits, the pros favor the jerk, jerk, stop briefly cadence for activating strikes.

I have actually also employed the exact same tempo for working Whopper Ploppers around cover and jerking wacky-rigged Senkos or floating worms for spawning bass. There is simply something concerning the activity created by the dual pause as well as jerk discussion that is also tempting for bass to withstand.

Topwater Poppers

These attractions are typically employed throughout warmer climate so you can use more aggressive twitches to attract strikes. If the water is rough, you need to make some turmoil with the lure to draw a bass’ focus in the rough water so jerk the appeal two times and afterwards allow it sit for about a 2nd.

Repeat the very same tempo if a bass fails to strike the lure on the time out. Attempt the same hard twitching as well as time out discussion whenever you run into bass busting shad externally. In tranquil problems, gently twitch the popper a couple of times and also stop it until the rings developed by the movement of the surface plug disappear on the water. This discussion is particularly effective when functioning the attraction around noticeable cover.

Topwater Walking Baits

Most of the moment I simply progressively walk this lure right to the boat, yet sometimes I utilize a couple of quick twitches as well as a prolonged time out when the attraction runs next to a dock or swamped bush. I likewise utilize the double stop briefly and twitch after a bass takes a swipe at the appeal however misses it.


Soft twitches as well as a longer time out (2 to 4 seconds) functions best for me when providing a Fluke to bass cruising the shallows. Jerking the attraction will trigger the Fluke to dart too much so I utilize short, soft twitches to make an extra natural-looking presentation. I vary the size of my pause depending on how deep I desire the attraction to drop.

Putting on hold Stickbaits

I generally use these attractions when the water is cold so the mood of the fish determines just how difficult I twitch these lures as well as the length of time I stop the stickbaits.

In the dead of winter season, I might gently twitch the lure two times and allow it sit for as lengthy as a 20- to 25-count waiting on a bass to slowly swim as much as the lure. When the water warms in very early springtime, I snap the lure two times as well as reduce my pause to concerning 2 to 5 secs.
