Rated 5 out of 5 by seaspider 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chockpish1 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.
