Mike McClelland Goes Over Jerkbaits in Detail

When it comes to fishing jerkbaits, those anglers from the Midwestern part of the country have long been known as some of the premier “jerkbaiters” out there.  Sure, the West has its share of stellar examples, as do the Northeast.  However, the jerkbait has become synonymous with lakes like Table Rock, Lake of the Ozarks, Bull Shoals, Grand Lake and some of the other clear water impoundments throughout the Ozarks and the Midwest.

One of those anglers that has been at the peak of his craft with the jerkbait for many years is Bella Vista, Ark. Elite Series pro Mike McClelland.  McClelland has developed a line of baits with his sponsor SPRO that fills all of the needs of a jerkbait angler.  From the McRip 85, to the original McStick 110, the 95, and now the 115, each of those lures has its own specific place for it to be used.  Until now, anglers were forced to try and use a trial and error approach to figuring out which bait to use when.

While we were at the recent SPRO, SUNLINE, Big Bite Baits and Gamakatsu Media Days event at Lake Sydney Lanier outside Atlanta, Ga., we sat down with McClelland and figured out how to put together a comprehensive start to finish guide with his signature SPRO baits.  In this video, McClelland helps us understand which bait to choose for the conditions and when we are fishing, where to apply them and how to use them.
