There might be days when both work equally well.



Couldn't have said it better myself.

A Jerkbait will out fish a jig all day long in cold water and I'm referring to 50 deg less, a bass main food source in cold water is the shad die offs not crawfish.

two totally different methods , both have a place and time . Rip baits are lots of fun , but I never seem to catch the really big ones , lots of smaller to mid sized bass . For jigs , clearly a better way to have a better than average chance at a big bass . As for water temps , in most states in the US , crawdads start the mating ritual , usually in rocky area's , when temps starting getting 50F plus ( not 50F at the surface , 50F at the crawdads level ) . Jigs in a brighter colors , cranks in red colors and even NED rigs all replicate the crawdad early season behavior . Early spring is great for both techniques .

Neither are my go-to lures for winter but between the 2 I would throw a jerkbait if the water clarity was good and a jig if it wasn't.

My go-to technique in the winter is to slow roll a big spinnerbait.
