I would rather throw and have more confidence in a sweet beaver alone then a jig. I used all winter to try and gain confidence in the jig and I've caught a few jig fish. But I still catch more on a beaver or craw bait. Am I the only one who just can't get confidence the jig?

I have a whole arsenal of brand new jigs that I haven't used in many years after I found the Sweet beaver!

Maybe it's the areas you're fishing? Perhaps the sweet beaver comes through your preferred cover better, so you fish it better and get more bites? I have more confidence in a jig than any other bait. But I don't throw it in all situations. Sometime the narrower profile of a beaver type bait is better for pitching, fishing grass, etc.

seen it both ways.... I have put the whoop'n on a couple buddies on days when they just wanted the jig, catch 3-1 over a t-rig, and then days where I couldn't buy a bite on a jig and get hammered by somebody just dragging a trig.

I have both tied on 90% of the time

I will say I fish the jig because I feel the average size I catch is typically better

Kevin just go to benbrook in a few weeks and throw that jig I PROMISE you will gain confidence in it. I know what you like to throw out there but one day just throw the Jig instead of the wand.

The sweet beaver is the cheapest beaver in my life. Been using that beaver for 6 yrs and it still hasn't asked for a divorced.

My tacklebox weighs 40 pounds heavier because of all the jigs in it. The reason I have so many jigs is because I keep buying them and never use them. I just have no confidence in them.

I have a lot of confidence in a jig but sometimes they just will not hit it. That is when I go to a craw tube or beaver bait.

Sometimes when I want to build confidence in a certain lure I only bring tackle for that technique and throw it all day.
