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 bbs): 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 bbs 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 bbs from getting stuck in crevices. This design emits a controlled sound and maximizes consistency, maximizing its 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 its 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.
Recommended Tackle
  • 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 downward.
  • 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.
  • Flit 120 Available in 15 colors

Ima Jerkbaits May 5, 2016
Reviewer: Trevor Zimak from Thunder Bay, ON Canada  
Awesome lure for the price.  Such sticky hooks - nice to see a product where you don't have to change out stock hooks.  Very durable unlike 30 dollar megabass.

One of the best ever made October 4, 2014
Reviewer: Wildbillbilly from Tn.  
The Flit 120 is right up there with the Megabass lures. I own a lot more of these guys than I do the megabass lures. They will flat out catch fish. I use them when the water is cold and warm. In the summer time if I catch the bass running shad, I will throw the flit out in the middle of the school and nail a bass every time. These guys are amazing. The action is great and they don't put a lot of resistance against you so you can fish them all day without wearing yourself out. Get you some and write a review letting me know how much you like them and outdoor proshop to.

Ima Flit 120 Jerkbait February 26, 2013
Reviewer: Tad Hepler from Niles, MI United States  
i like the IMA Flit 120, however one of the colors that I ordered was off base from the inter-net photo and not a color I would choose on a regular basis.  I had to send back (2) of the same items for that very reason.

Ima Flit Jerkbait January 2, 2012
Reviewer: Ron Howe from elk grove ca, CA United States  
This is a great jerkbait,it truly darts with eratic action and the fish love it! A big difference with this bait is that the bait rips with far less drag than other baits ive used making it alot easier to rip with this jerkbait for longer periods of time.
