    CLARITY

    8 '

    TEMP

    38 - 44°F

    PATTERN NOTES

    Shuffield would twitch the jerkbait twice and then pause it for 5 or 6 seconds. This method emulated a dying shad.

    3. MIKE WURM

    SEASON

    early prespawn

    birch trees

    WATER DEPTH

    20 ' - 25 '

    CLARITY

    6 '

    TEMP

    40 - 46°F

    PATTERN NOTES

    Wurm dragged his jig on the bottom in a painfully slow fashion. If it ever came off the bottom, that meant you were fishing it too fast.
