J-Pig is a cheese base punch bait with a good amount of fiber as where Sure Shot has actual bait fish as an ingredient and little if any fiber. When using Sure Shot I use a spring Treble and keep the bait on ice in summer months as where I use a bare treble with J-Pig and don't worry about keeping it on ice. Both are great baits I just prefer J-PIG as well as sudden impact due to both staying on the hook better and longer. Just my 2 cent opinion and preference.

I fished Sure Shot for years. Not sure Benny Roberts still makes it but obviously someone does.
Don't know about the other, but it's not that hard to make punch bait (not hard to make it if you have materials and time and land). It's probably more about situation than anything. One bait might stay on a #4 treble better but the other might attract more bites, so balanced out they might catch about the same fish per hour. It comes down to availability and situation. Do you want to ice it? I use frozen water bottles and push one down in the middle of the gallon of bait. When it melts, remove and put another there. Keeps water out of your bait and your bait out of your ice.
