G. Loomis Jerkbait Rods

Fishing jerkbaits, whether early in the spring or later in the year requires a lot of confidence in the technique. You have to believe the fish are there and you must be patient. In cold water, it's a pull, pause, pull, pause, technique with lots of emphasis on the pause. Sometimes it's as long as 30 to 40 seconds of just letting the lure suspend. This is a deadly technique, especially with smallmouth early in the season. You need a rod with a light, responsive tip that allows you to fish the bait properly without sacrificing power.

These rods are designed with fast tips and progressive tapers in the mid-section so the angler can work the lures correctly with minimal effort. Effective for spots, largemouth or smallmouth, it all relates to water temperature. When it's cold, you fish very slow, when it's warmer, you speed things up quite a bit. Sometimes you need to be super aggressive with the lure movement and this rod has the power to do that and still not overload it, but when you need to be subtle, the tip is light enough and responsive enough to impart a slight twitch if that's what it takes to get the fish going. There is plenty of reserve power in the butt-section for getting fish headed your way.
