Jerkbaits are great lures for catching smallmouth bass. You can target suspended bass over deeper water or just jerk these lures over the shallows to look for bass moving in to feed on bait fish.  However you choose to fish them, they definitely work and will often catch some nice bass.

Hard Jerkbaits

Hard jerkbaits are super effective for targeting smallmouth bass.  Use a twitch and pause retrieve and you will catch smallmouth bass.  In warmer water, use a faster retrieve and in colder water, slow your retrieve down and you’ll have more success.
