Berkley® PowerBait® Saltwater Jerk Shad™ are 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.
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!
and be safe!

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.

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?
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.
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!
