Bust’em Baits 7″ Jerk baits are an exact replica of the 5.25″ Jerk Bait, but longer and wider. These are great for fishing for big stripers in the fall, winter and spring. These baits work great on jig heads ranging from 1/2 oz up to 1 1/2 oz or a weighted swim bait hook. The 7″ in Jerk Bait can be used to target suspended fish or fish holding on the bottom. The bait imitates a struggling bait fish that stripers love to pick off.
