Teaser image: 

Check out Bassmaster Open Pro, Patrick Pierce's NEW Star Tron Triton towed by the Star Tron Tundra from Beaver Toyota in St Augustine, Fla. If you haven't winterized your outboard with Star Tron Fuel Treatment yet, get by your local Sportsman's Warehouse and get a bottle!

Get to Sportsman's Warehouse and get an X Rap Deep to keep catching in the cold!

It's getting cold and that means it's time to throw a jerkbait for bass.

Rapala makes some of the best jerkbaits on the market. Their X Rap Deep is just the ticket when fish bunch up offshore.

If you're still catching them shallow, great. If your fish have moved out then it's time to get to Sportsman's Warehouse or and check out the Rapala X Rap Deep jerkbait!

Remember, jerkbaiting success depends on figuring out how long to pause between jerks, so experiment and pay attention.

Good luck!

The next B.A.S.S.
