plastic lures are effective  when used correcctly


including jigs  yes expect will get hung

Sounds good to me. Most of my fishing is done with a jig/trailer... if not that, then it is a worm or some other soft plastic, so you are right in my wheelhouse. I carry some hard plastics and spinner/buzz/chatter baits but they get limited use.

 

Of course, where I fish all the banks are steep... 20' off the bank puts you in 20' of water... so jigs seem to be one of the more effective ways for me to get the bait to the fish. Your mileage may vary.

I 've been using about 80 percent plastics for years for bass.  I've found that if they aren't hitting plastics they usually aren't hitting anything else and if they are hitting plastics I catch more with them.  The only exceptions  are  when I go topwater and the rare times I use a jig (but even that is  usually tipped with plastics.).

Oklahoma is where Okie is from

And losing lures made him so glum

He switched over to plastic

Which worked out fantastic

And the money he saved, quite a sum!
