Which Jerkbaits Catch Fish?:
One The Water: Cold Front Jerkbaits:

Jerkbait fishing is one of the easiest ways to “trigger” a feeding response in a bass. Where most baits rely on a bass’ desire to feed the jerkbait can actually force them to react at an instinctual level.

We’ve spent countless hours filming underwater footage of bass reacting to lures and we can confidently say that they consistently react to a jerkbait more than any other lure. The next time you’re on the water and the bite gets tough, don’t forget to try a jerk bait!

Travis Hall says:

You guys never disappoint. Amazing video. I truly truly enjoyed it. And Matt, I’ve not been a jerkbait fisherman in the past. But I will be after this video. Lol. Thanks for another great video, guys.

Larry Doner says:

The number one underwater video I’ve ever seen do more like this awesome love the video

J BERG says:

I just ordered myself a megabass vision 110R. +2 from japan.

Can’t wait to try it

weouchhere says:

Matt your video from the other day helped! Bought some mega bass swim baits and crushed my pb!!!

Sal Palos says:

When you were straight retrieving it….was it just to get it in the strike zone for where the cameraman and fish were? or is burning it/straight retrieving before starting to twitch something you all do regularly?

Detroit Bass Fishing says:

Awesome footage & video, one question what hook do you use on the regular vision 110?

331slash says:

Like the new camera for the intro outro what did yall get?

Liam Brain says:

Hey guys, so I know this is off topic. But I was wondering, what type of bait would be best to catch around a 5lb bass? I live next to a dam (quite small) that only seems to have max 3lb fish. The lake has a lot of Lilly pads and reeds, but also a lot of water. What bait would you guys recommend to catch a 5lb’er? Thanks guys!
Love your content, keep it up!

Colby G says:

Awesome video guys!

albert oriol says:

Damn guys thank you for this video, first thing I’m gonna do is change out the hooks on all of my jerkbaits! I bet I missed some giants just because of the hooks getting dulled out

Lambert Parod says:

Good vid…like always…lmk when you come to central Illinois lmk I have a good public lake to fish. See how we can do…u won’t get under water footage but can catch some nice ones

sneaccy says:

It seems as if the fish are hitting it out of agression rather than trying to actually eat it.

LuisT LTZ says:

Amazing footage as always!

PowerShellMike says:

AWESOME sauce!!

Karnage says:

Great jerkbait footage gents!

Mike Staudt says:

Awesome guys!!!!

Bob George says:

Hammer Rough says:

It’s the fast rattle crank then stop jerk. On the jackel. Awesome vid guys 82k so close!

Moto_ bro_24 says:

Looking to get a helix 10 mega do you guys have any experience with them?

m t says:

This content is so insanely good, thanks for the awesome vid!

roland villanueva says:

Thank you for this!

rfvgv says:

Looking to get a jerkbait rod. Have you tried the megabass destroyer oneten special or the megabass orochi jerkbait special? If you have any pros and cons would be appreciated.

Fishing In The City says:

Did you see how the fish take off when a fish gets hooked?? Do they come right back?

Ryan Nace says:

I’ve been throwing jerkbaits a lot lately and can’t get anything to bite. Really all hard baits are failing me. Had one chase a square bill but fail to commit. I can catch them with flukes, chatterbaits, and texas rigged rage craws. Any pointers?

Adam Lefebvre says:

Love it! Time to sharpen my hooks.

Dustin Bryant says:

Hey guys if you can remember this day in specific, about how much water clarity was there?

gary m says:

Great Video!!!! Cheers :))

Brandon Sovick says:

That Jackall thou

Joshua Paradise says:

Revolutionary YouTube Fishing video!!! Took my mind from fishing above water, to below. Thank you for the vids Matt and Tim.
These underwater vids are the next BIG hit on here… been hooked on you guys and a few fellow others on here for some years now.


Crazy footage for sure I love throwing jerkbaits they are one of the best fall lures around in my opinion and it looks like you may have to make the same cast 2 or 3 times to get one to bite very helpful information.

Fishing With Gerik says:

Hi Tim, I met you at a tournament last weekend and It was super cool! I would love to get in touch with Matt and maybe go fishing. Also I took your advice and went fishing at that one lake and we caught some decent fish… Thanks for the Help!

Twangtown7 says:

AWESOME footage fellas. I’d love to see more of this with different lures. Keep up the great work!

Bass Slayers says:
