Jerkbait fishing the extreme shallows isn’t the first thing that comes to mind for most bass fisherman but it’s where the bass are in many instances.

While balsa crankbaits are Swindle’s initial go-to bait, he keeps a shallow running jerkbaits on deck for when the bass push into the 2-foot range and less. A realistic-profiled bait allows him to match the profile and movement of the forage while keeping the bait suspended off the bottom and clear of cover elements.
