      thanks for the advice... I'm heading back to the lake in the morning and will give the jerk bait a whirl.

      I used to live 1 mile from Cedar, if i were you I would be throwing nothing but suspending jerk baits, buy those stick on lead stickers and set them up so they do ...more not sink or float up at all, I used to fill up the bathtub with water set to the temp of whatever the lake is so i know the lure wont float or sink, it is killer when water is 50-60 degress, you should be catching 10-30 bass easily that way

      Nice catch. As far as I know Cedar doesn't have white bass. That looks like a pure striped bass.
