|Your time to fish is precious. So that means, from time to time, you’re going to encounter a summer day where it’s cold and maybe windy. And the water temperature has dropped maybe as much as 10 degrees. Ugh.|
Don’t throw in the towel just yet! Because we are anglers first at Rapala®, we anticipated days like this. And we have a solution for you. The ever-reliable Husky Jerk®, another Rapala classic.
The secret sauce of the Husky Jerk Series (Original Husky Jerk®, Down Deep Husky Jerk®, Jointed Deep Husky Jerk® and Husky Magnum®) is its perfect balance and tight wiggle, which makes it particularly effective on cold days when predator fish are keying in on slower moving baitfish.
Cast the Husky Jerk near a rock pile, a sunken island, a drop off or a thick bed of submerged weeds. Jerk or twitch it. Then pause (hum to yourself for 5 to 10 seconds). The Husky Jerk will stop in its tracks and then slowly rise. Jerk it again, and again. Pause. And then, BAM!!! Fish on!
The combination of this jerk and pause action, the slow rise of the bait and the lure’s rattle chamber, which transmits sound waves that amplify through water – all combine to entice cold, reluctant fish to lash out and strike the bait.
By the way, the Husky Jerk also is highly effective for trolling, too. Give it a try when you need to get down to dark, deep cool water.
So no more “It’s cold out, the fish aren’t going to bite today” excuses. Just reach for a Husky Jerk and start having some cold summer day fun.
