Larger baits for targeting big reds and speckled trout. With an erratic retrieve, the bait will dart and rest like a wounded baitfish. Can also be jigged in deep water.

Nightfishing port Canaveral I fished the jerk shad at Port Canaveral on 10/18/13 from 2pm - 7am alone from a small craft in varying locations within the port. When thrown under dock lights it produced three undersized Snook. When worked in the open targeting school action it produced 6 Crevalle Jack, the largest measuring 20". When worked on the bottom it produced one 15" Flounder. These lures are especially effective when used in conjuncture with a weighted twist -lock. They mimic finger Mullet and work well during a Mullet run. After about 5 fish, or 2 Jacks an eye or two will fall of the lure, but the fish don't seem to mind. Very pleased October 22, 2013
Great on stripers! I have been using the Arkansas shiner power jerk shad for striped bass. And let me tell you that these work extremely well. I have caught at least six to seven stripers on one shad. Rigged on a 3/8 jig head and twitched and paused, the stripers can't seem to say no! I have also used the watermelon pearl color, and that one works better in the fall. I think it resembles the rainbow smelt that start to run about that time of year. Either way, they work very well! Tight lines, and be safe! December 27, 2011
5" watermelon/pearl I used this jerk bait with a bait caster, 10 lb.fluorocarbon leader, and a 1/4 oz darter head. It worked wonders on calico and sand bass in saltwater. July 14, 2010
NOT It shows that the shad is red. It's not!! Do not like March 26, 2010

I have had good luck with natural colors like grey or silver but sometimes you have to see what the fish want, have also done well on white, chartreuse and dark green.

A: 
Where i fish, the best color is watermelon pearl, also if you can get it, try the Arkansas shiner! These are the two colors that work the best in my area! Now if I can give some advise? I usually have as many colors as I can! The reason for that is, what works in one area doesn't necessarily work in an other! Some colors will work in most places, so having a variety of colors can make the difference in catching some fish to not catching at all! Hope this helps!

Put it on a jig head that is heavy enough to get it to the bottom and bounce it along bottom. Experiment until you see what speed the fish like best.

A: 
It all depends on what you are fishing for, and the area you are fishing in! An old saying says match the hatch! You can rig it weightless, with a jig head, drop shot, Texas rigged. It all depends on what your fishing for and the area. Try all the techniques until you find one that works well in the area your in. But when you change areas and fish species, the techniques may also change, or stay the same. Also you may be more comfortable with one technique over the other ones.Hope this helps?

A: 
I use regular jig heads and just enough weight to get me to the bottom. It depends on the depth of the water and current. I use anywhere from 1/8 ounce to 1 ounce

A: 
I prticulary fished finnese, with a fluro leader and as little weight i can get away with it; like a split shot or just a heavy hook. it won't go too far so you have to be close to the fish. But tha's the best way to go when fishing wary fish.
At the end it just depends on what are you fishing for and where. Rule of the thumb, dont impale it with a gigantic hook or jig, dress it in a way that the point of the hook do not go farther out than the girth of the lure more or less.

A: 
I have used this jerk shad two different ways! The first is weightless, with a 5/0 wide gap worm hook, and the other way is with a 3/8 jig head. I fish for striped bass next to the fish processing plants' discharge pipe. I use the jig head method to simulate a feeding smelt or minnow. I use the weightless method to simulate a dying minnow, just let it go with the current and give a twitch every once in a while. Works very well for me. Hopes this helps!
