All About the Jerky J

All About the Jerky J

The straight tail on the Jerky J is less intrusive and less “noisy” than a paddle tail, and most of the action comes from the head. Therefore, it’s a subtle presentation, and to me is just a little something different that most bass fishermen didn’t throw. READ MORE »
