Jig Vs Texas Rig: When Should You Throw Each?

When you find a nice patch of shallow cover, you can bet bass are most likely hiding out somewhere nearby. But, how are you supposed to catch those bass once you find them? The two most common baits to flip or pitch into shallow cover are a jig and a Texas rig. Each has their own calling.

When To Throw A Jig Into Shallow Cover

Jigs shine best when imitating craws. Throw a jig around shallow wood cover, near docks, or anywhere else bass would be feasting on craws. Jigs, in my opinion, are also more suited for trophy hunting. The bigger, bulkier presentation is more likely to draw strikes from your new PB than a slimmer Texas Rig.

When To Throw A Texas Rig Into Shallow Cover

Texas rigs are more likely to succeed in vegetation. Throw a T-Rig into more weedy areas with slimmer creature baits or senko style stick baits attached. These are great options for slithering between aquatic vegetation.

While both jig fishing and Texas rig fishing are successful around laydowns and other cover, each has a time and a place. Let us know which is your favorite bait to pitch around shallow cover and what videos we should do next!
