Soft plastic jerk baits

Soft plastic jerk baits, such as the Slug-o, are very effective large mouth bass lures. These baits are fished without any weight, on or near the top of the water. Fishing soft plastic jerk baits over a weed bed is a great way to catch hungry largemouth bass. These baits imitate a wounded bait fish in an extremely effective way. When retrieving these bass baits, make sure you “jerk” your rod tip, rather than a constant reeling motion.

Small jerk baits are particularly good right now in Florida since we have had so much rain. Especially the frog baits.
