No matter what you call them, they are one of the best early season techniques to catch bass. When the water is cold and begins to warm in the spring, this type of technique can sometimes be the most effective way to trigger strikes when other strategies are ineffective. One of the keys to triggering jerkbait strikes is to implement an erratic retrieve with short pauses. The colder the water, the longer the pause. For example, with water temps in the upper 30’s a pause of one minute or more can be the best way to trigger strikes from early season bass.” Register at the door or www.thebassuniversity.com Classes run from 8am to 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday and are located at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA.
