Late Fall and early Winter is one of my favorite times to throw a suspending jerkbait. I key on features near a main or secondary creek channel such as bluff end points, bridges, or hard channel bends. I usually vary the retrieve according to water temperature but most always use short hard snaps of the rod. The Strike King 300 Series is a great all around jerkbait and I mostly stick with shad patterns in the Fall.
My preferred tackle is a Shimano Curado 7.2 :1 on a Power Tackle Keith Combs Signature Series jerkbait/topwater rod spooled with 12lb Seaguar Invizx.
