depends where you're fishing. power plant lake where the water temps are in the 70s-80s i would choose a jig.
cold water lakes I would choose a jig with water temps 45 degrees or higher and a jerkbait below 45 degrees.

It's pointless to pick between the two on a poll. It all depends on where you are and what's going on with conditions at the time.

It's only pointless to you, if you don't like it clam up!

Maybe you can add a clam to your poll and try that.

Big....HONKING....JIG!

Jerk baits have a place and a time....but a Jig is day in day out ALWAYS GREAT.

Of course, a monkey could catch a bass on a jerkbait when they are suspended and eating cold, dying Shad. But, I'd still rather hop a jig.

Alright, "generally" speaking for a cold water lake in the northern part of Texas from lake Conroe to Meredith.

If the bass are suspending/in the middle of the water column--I'd have more confidence in a jerkbait

On the bottom or tight to cover or reacting to something falling fast, jig

There might be days when both work equally well.

All depends on lake and conditions of the day. Certain lakes I'll throw a jerkbait all day long other lakes they won't touch one and I can get bit on a jig better. My favorite is the jerkbait. Just my observations and opinion.

I am not all that great with a jerkbait but was under the impression that a jerkbait, if worked right would bring the fish up from the bottom? I'm asking not telling.

If the water is clear enough yes they will rise up for a jerkbait. You are correct.

It all depends on what the fish want so try both of them and find out for yourself which is best that day.
