I love early spring fishing with jerkbaits. you can cast and retrieve however you want and will catch fish, but if it's slow, you can always troll around looking for the active fish that are still in the open deep waters. SOme of them haven't moved into the back creek arms to settle down and are chasing their food of choice, shad! so i opted for a lure with a bit of white and other colors mixed in and it did WELL!
