As some of you know already, a soft jerk bait is a fish-catching son of a gun. It will catch fish almost any time the water temp is above 60 degrees, but what if I told you that you can use the new D-Shad below 60 degrees?
What more can be said about a soft jerkbait that hasn’t already been said? We all know it can be rigged Texas style, weightless, on a belly hook, on a drop-shot, and Carolina-rigged. It’s even used as a trailer on a scrounger head or chatter bait. Well, I prefer the D-Shad Texas-rigged with a 1/4 to 3/8-oz tungsten weight.
