Berkley PowerBait Saltwater Jerk Shad
Watermelon Red Glitter For Lunkers
This is another saltwater product that will work wonders in freshwater too. It cast well weightless and it produces large bass consistently. It also works well Texas or Carolina rigged. I use a lot of saltwater plastics in high pressured areas and I think that may be one reason they produce well as the bass have seen nearly everything made for freshwater. Give these a try and you won't be disappointed, excellent action with great results.

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.

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!

Put 'em on, reel 'em in!
These big shads are great for bringing in the big reds. Combo with a good hook, and you'll need a bigger cooler. The red color has worked very well for me!
