Shorty Special Jerkbait Rod
I choose the Dobyns Rods 634CB (6'3") for Jerkbait fishing. When I move, twitch or jerk the bait I'm moving the rod from 7 o'clock to max 8 o'clock position down to a 6 o'clock position. The shorter 634CB makes this easier without having the tip hit the water. I think it allows the angler to do more types of cadences with the rod which makes the bait do more and entices the fish to bite. For me the Shorter 6'3" rod is perfect for this style of fishing and makes it easier for me to control the bait. This is very common method how anglers in the Midwest work a Jerkbait...I do know the West Coast they prefer the 704 CB (7' 0") for working jerkbaits and I have used that rod for different situations like long casting open water. Normally we are working very close to docks and over small brush piles so it makes it easier for me and my preferred choice is the 634 CB. Hope this helps you select the best Dobyns Rod for your jerkbait fishing needs.
