Patrick Walter's Tips on Jerkbait Fishing Around Cover

Wed, March 23, 2022

A master of jerkbait fishing with forward-facing sonar, Patrick Walters is here to share a quick tip on fishing hard jerkbaits around cover. When trying to get a jerkbait into higher percentage areas, tight to cover, Patrick likes using the Shadow Rap Deep or other deep diving jerkbaits. The purpose of this is that the longer bill shape of the Shadow Rap Deep or other deep diving jerkbaits acts as a deflection point for timber, docks, and other forms of cover, almost like a squarebill crankbait. This will allow you to fish a jerkbait tighter to cover where bass hide, serving up more bites on the water!
