Soft Plastic Jerkbaits: 4 Fluke Tricks For Fall Bass!

Tips And Tricks
The Fluke is an amazing baitfish imitator! There may be no better bait to target aggressive bass in Fall, around heavy cover. The soft jerkbait’s ability to dance in an out of cover triggers a feed response, even in wary bass. This is a bait that should be in your Fall fishing line up every time you hit the water.

Most anglers fish a soft jerkbait but few realize its true adaptability. It can be texas rigged in heavy cover, nose hooked in clear water, or be “donkey rigged” and fished around active bass. Most anglers use the Fluke but few know how to keep fishing eating it day after day. Pay attention to the details in Tim’s rigging methods as they can be the difference between catching a few fish and really dialing in an amazing pattern.

Below you’ll find links to the all the baits discussed in the video. We’ve included our favorite sizes, colors, and rigging components for each. We’ve also included some of our favorite soft jerkbait combos for different rigging methods.
