  1. Can't catch with a jig, I have been using them for 2 seasons with only one unsucessful bite, this week I used them bank fishing in 3 sessions for a combined total of 27 hrs worth of effort and not a single bite, my cousin was fishing the same spot as me with plastic worms and getting at least 4 bass per session………I am not giving up because for some reason I just love jigs, even though they don't produce I am convinced it is worth the effort to figure them out.
    Can you make some suggestions that may help me figure out my problem?
    I used them with and without craw trailer.
    I both hop and drag them.
    I target both weeds and rocks.
    And I do well in these places with worms.
    So what can it be? I am getting frustrated, my cousin is hounding me to give up the jigs says they must not work in michigan, either that or the videos are just made to sell jigs and they are somehow rigged.
