Mike McClelland is well-known as a jerkbait fisherman. Growing up, he liked to tinker with Smithwick Rogues and other jerkbaits of the time, adding weight, changing hooks and split rings to get the right buoyancy and action. Since that time, Mike has designed a series of (4) SPRO jerkbaits (stick baits) that incorprate all the things he liked from a handful of jerkbaits that are largely no longer available. In this remastered bass fishing video class seminar, Mike McClelland talks about these baits as well as the tackle for fishing jerkbaits through various seasons. Mike will teach you where to throw a jerkbait, good conditions for fishing a jerkbait and seasonal & conditional changes (colors, sizes, etc).
