One of the more difficult bait styles from which to stand out from the crowd. The BaitJunkie Jerkshads’ exhibit some of the most incredible swimming action ever witnessed from a ‘fluke’ style bait.
The BaitJunkie ‘slim waist’ design principle is in full flight in the 5” Jerkshad, with the prominent waist section segmenting the bait into two separate parts. The vertical fluke tail exaggerates the action and the hinge-like effect of the body makes the tail section of the BaitJunkie 5” Jerkshad swim like no other. A belly slit enables weedless rigging with an EWG style weighted hook and is the rigging method of choice when you want to keep the bait up high in the water column.
The largest offering in the initial BaitJunkie line-up, the 7” Jerkshad is like no other. With the longer body and more mass, the incredible ‘S’ wave swimming motion which is so prevalent in the 5” version is only increased in the 7” model. The combination of the segmented body design and the vertical fluke tail makes this lure swim like you couldn’t imagine. Rigged with a traditional jighead design, the 7” jerkshad will swim on the drop, accounting for an incredible amount of strikes. On the straight retrieve the tail section moves like a snake through the water, allowing the bait to track straight & true, a great feature when chasing fast-moving pelagic species.
