Yup, that should work fine. Will actually make it easier to get a nice beat going with the baits. I prefer longer for casting range and hook set. Shorter rods work fine though.
Dom, yes, the body looks exactly the same. I did notice an extra ball bearing in the body of the 128 though. I couldn't tell if there were any additions in the LV100.

I got a few pointer 112s from "japan" on ebay. they were 6 bucks and send from Fremont Ca. They look great, and swim nice but they float... I put some suspend dots on them but I think they are knockoffs. As far as rods go I am using my skeet reese spinnerbait rod. Its a 7 foot medium fast. His jerbait specific rod is a 6'6" medium fast. My 7 footer works great and is super light.

good call, I knew it was shorter but thought it was a 6'6" my bad. I picked them both up and they feel pretty darn close if you ask me.

Thanks guys for all the awesome responses. I guess I'll be throwing it on the same rod I throw my spinnerbaits and crankbaits on then (would the Powell 765 CB/SBR rod work for this), with 10-12 lb floro line on it (or do you recommend mono for this technique).

I've been watching a few videos to try and see how to work the lure. It just seems like you have to figure out your own cadence as to what the bass are looking for and how long you are willing to wait with each pause.

I just might have to get out on the banks and try to work at it in the clear water before taking it on the kickboat. I definetly need to get this down before meeting up with all of you at the tournaments.

Keep the good info coming guys.

I like floro because it sinks and allows the bait to sink but some like mono because it does not. The think I have found in the short time I have had confidence in jerkbaits is be patient! Sometimes the pause between jerks is long, I mean uncomfortably long. The fish will let you know what they want just be patient!

I think we should have an article on this!

Situations make mono or fluro relevant. Example - if you are fishing a floating jerkbait over a shallow weedbed, mono or even braid will be much better than fluoro.

If you're fishing deeper jerkbaits or just want to keep your bait down better in deeper water, fluro would be preferred.

Cover can also dictate line. Don't be afraid to throw a jerkbait on 20 lb test if that is what cover calls for OR, again, you're fishing shallow weeds and want to keep the bait as high in the water column as possible.

As for the cadence...it does depend. Just like you can deadstick a senko, jig, worm, etc., you can do this also with a jerkbait. The longest I've gone is only 30 seconds but you can do longer if you can stand it! More than 5 seconds for me is painful....let the fish tell you what they want for the particular day.

Most of my fish, even in cold water, comes on relatively short pauses but I'm sure I've missed many fish that would have been more attracted to the longer pause.

Go out and give us a report!

Todd

i like mono for fishing spinnerbaits, because it has a little more strech to it, and they cant spit it out as easy.

have you guys ever had a problem with your braid. when i had braid on one of my rods, the tag on the knot would always slip through. i would leave a pretty big tag, but it would just slip right out.

AWALK - a solution I came up with that has been 100% reliable has been to:
1. use the right knots - double uni or palomar
2. on that tag end tie 1 or 2 overhand knots right up against your original knot.

You do this and it will never slip again.

One other solution I have heard but sounds risky is to use a lighter and score the tag. Just don't weaken your main line!
