Jerkbait Setup (Rod/Reel/Line) - Jacob Bros

Fri, November 11, 2022

Whether targeting largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass, fishing a hard jerkbait can be a deadly option to imitate baitfish under a variety of conditions and deserves a home in every bass angler's arsenal. Today, Omnia Fishing's Jacob Bros goes over his rod, reel, and line setup for fishing hard jerkbaits, such as the Megabass Vision 110. For the rod, Jacob relies on a 7'0' Medium-Light, Regular action Daiwa Rebellion, which has a bit more moderate flex that helps to prevent lost fish on the way back to the boat, while having proper backbone to impart the best possible action on the bait. A 7.3:1 Daiwa Tatula SV is the perfect choice for picking up line quickly between jerks and snaps of the rod, and is spooled with 10lb fluorocarbon to ensure maximum dive depth and the best action darting and slashing action.
