What is it?
Top Shelf Tackle Schooling Minnow, a hand-poured Fluke-style jerkbait.
What does it do?
It does the soft jerkbait thing with a different look than the fish in your pond have ever seen.
How do I use it?
There are many ways to use soft jerkbaits, which is part of the reason why they are so popular. The other reason is because they flat-out catch fish. There are few baits that mimic a baitfish as well as a soft jerkbait, booth in look and action. The action in already in this proven design, and now the colors are in another dimension. Many anglers use soft jerkbaits on weightless wide-gap hooks, but if you want a little more casting distance and a shimmy on the fall, use a weighted hook. These are also at home on drop shot rigs, Carolina rigs and as trailers on ChatterBaits and the like.
What sets it apart?
The action is ideal for a soft jerkbait, but the colors are what stand out with Top Shelf plastics. They’re hand-poured and are a scary good match for many species of baitfish.
