Ima Flit 120 Jerkbait
The Ima Flit 120 is a jerkbait that mimics the appearance and action of a dying baitfish. The erratic action of the Ima Flit is the key to its effectiveness. The Ima Flit is a universal jerkbait that possesses all the optimal features of for jerkbait fishing and expands its fishable range from not just clear water, but into more turbid waters through its realistic sound and action, and not just cold water but into all temperatures. The 120 size is 4.75" and weighs 1/2oz with a diving depth of 6-8ft.
Ima Flit 120 Features
3 Hooks: Made with three hooks. This design helps increase catch
ratio when fish are in a reactive mood and not willing to aggressively
feed. Most commonly an asset in colder water early and late in the
year and in post frontal situations.
High Pitch (small bb’s): Most Commonly resembling to baitfish in
the Herring family (flat sided, as opposed to a round sided smelt),
which includes Gizzard and Threadfin Shad, to imitate sound in colder
water conditions and in post frontal situations.
Triangular Internal Chamber system: This unique system maximizes
sound by ricocheting bb’s at constant angles. With this design it
allows for a controlled sound among all jerkbaits that come out
of production, allows the jerkbait to be consistent in sound, and keeps
the bb’s from getting stuck in crevices. This design emits a
controlled sound and maximizes consistency, maximizing it’s realistic
and unique sound.
6 to 8ft dive depth: Most common depth, within visible sight, of
suspending baitfish and predatory fish aimed to catch in colder months
and post frontal situations.
Flat sided, wider back: A common shape of baitfish resembling in
the Herring family. If taken a cross section of, both will appear
triangular in shape, as oppose to oval in shape, more resembling of a
smelt or minnow, which is less commonly fed on by Bass.
Forward pointed, skinnier bill: This lure has its action built
into it’s design. Many competitors make a lure and adjust the bill
width and size to give the lure its action. This will only create more
resistance wearing the user out much quicker. The bill angle, length
and width is designed for strictly the depth, where the body is
designed for the action by resembling the shape of Herring, which
includes Gizzard and Threadfin Shad, and giving a similar cadence,
resulting in a much user friendly, less tiring lure.
-Flash: With how the sides of the jerkbait are designed, they
reflect light slightly downward, naturally the direction from which a
strike will most likely come from, as oppose to outward and in any
which direction like most competitors.
- Jerk Pause: Starting each jerk with a slack and ending with a
slack after single to multiple jerks. Increase frequency between jerks
and pauses as fish activity level increases and as water temperature
increases. Work the lure with your rod top close to the water to
maximize depth, bringing the rod tip up as you would like to work it
shallower or through or over shallow cover.
- Deadsticking: Working the lure with very little contact with the
lure itself and inching the lure forward by bringing up the slack and
using the weight of the line to move the lure forward. Start out with a
couple cranks and with the Jerk Pause technique to get the lure to
depth before working the deadsticking technique.
- Rod: 6' - 7' depending on height: You want the rod as long as
possible, but just short enough to where your rod tip is not dragging
in the water on the Jerk Pause technique when your rod is pointed
- Line:8lb-14lb line: The lighter the line the better, when you can get
away with it. This will maximize the natural action of the lure. As
there is more cover and debris to wear line easier, increase the weight
of the line.
- Reel: Most reels can be used, but suggest using a 6.3:1 ratio or
greater for easy use.
