For over 60 years, smallies, walleye, pike and bigmouth have thrashed weed beds and structure in savage attacks on the same infuriating romper: the irresistible balsa-wood Bang-O-Lure Jerkbait. Cast, let it settle, twitch, pause and retrieve. Repeat. Or, slow troll shorelines or off weed beds. Either way, grip tight and brace yourself for a classic strike.
Use medium tackle and fish tight to logs, stumps or weed-beds. Cast, let it set, twitch, set again, and retrieve. On the retrieve, it dives to 2 feet, often prompting surface strikes as you’re pulling in for another cast.
Ideal for big predators like large mouth bass striking at a wounded shad on the surface or a big pike gobbling perch over a weed bed. Cast it, let it sit, and twitch it. Watch the rings disappear before twitching again. Any slight disturbance means a big fish.
