Castaic Jerky J Swim Series

A go-to favorite of the Bass Dr., Jason Lambert, Jerky J’s are the super soft jerk baits that dart, jump and glide like no other! The Giant Jerky J model won Jason’s 2016, 2017, and 2018 FLW win at Kentucky Lake, helping him best his own personal record year-over-year.

A soft body with no added weight adds to the realism and perfects the lifelike swimming action.

A thick mid-section, thin tail, and dorsal fin give this soft swimbait a wild veering motion when twitched.

Pair it with the Jerky J Jigheads and ensure a perfect fit and hook-up every time. Use a light line with plenty of slack on the pause between twitches. You’ll get the most strikes in this brief pause.

A versatile bait, the Jerky J lets you experiment with other retrieve techniques in any body of water.

When it comes to realism and action, nothing touches a Jerky J.

  • Available in a 3.5″ baby version, 5″ version, and Giant 7″ version
  • Comes in a pack of 10 (baby version), 8 (5″ version), or 3 (giant version)
  • Protruding dorsal fin
  • Versatile bait for many retrieve techniques – weightless, Texas or Carolina rigged, as a trailer, drop shot, Kitana Scrounger Jig, etc.

    Ordered what I needed and 2 days later its in my mailbox. Great bunch of guys and great product. As a pro fisherman you have to have a advantage and I know I have a edge over the competition when I have these baits in my boat. Great Company and Great Product. Highly recommend these guys.

    What can I say about a Jerky J, these things flat out catch fish and are supper versatile! These lifelike baits have an unbelievable action. Whether you rig it weedless like a fluke, use it as a trailer on a vibrating jig, on a Carolina rig, a drop shot, or a deadly scrounger head fish just devour these! So definitely grab yourself some Jerky J’s, you’ll thank me later.

    7” in various colors are absolute ling cod killers. 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 are phenomenal on black and red snapper. These are now the only swim baits we carry on our boat.

    Awesome! Post-spawn bass love it! The Giant Jurky J looks natural and fish hammer it. The best swim bait I have ever used, period. The 7″ Blue Shad is killer during the shad spawn. Used a 6/0 hook with a small silver willow blade underneath and dipped less than an inch of the tail in chartreuse dip-and-glow. This not only delivers, but holds up attack after attack.
