Water temp is the key for jerkbaits. The 110 is the best in cold water, pretty dang good any other time too.
I have a bunch of jerkbaits from different manufacters, but the 110 are the only ones in my boat along with 3 Pointer 78's if they want a small bait.
If you fish for smallmouth you better have Elgybone. Ito Natural and HT Ito Tenn Shad will get you started

I've noticed this! I have one Shad Rap I've used maybe twice and the finish and bill are all crackly looking.

Do you fill that with water yourself

the answer to that is yes.  you drill a hole between the bill and the front hook hanger.  reel the lure to rod tip, stick it in the water and figure 8 until full.  during freezing weather shake out the water when done, or you will crack the lure.

be sure to use the short bill floaters.  the medium bills do not work right when twitched.

I've only got one Rogue if I recall correctly and it fits the description.

you can also use the same lure in a rebel, floater - short bill.

For some reason a drilled stickbait only works in the lures that have glue-in bills. Do NOT try this with Bagleys  or Rapalas tho'...

I need to ammend my answer. EVERY bass ive caught this fall has been on KVD 1.5 Black back chartreuse silent version. I let it set then give it a few twitches then go to variable speed. Hard to describe the action on those crankbaits. Dying fish is pretty close.

When the water is very cold 47 and below the perfect rogue is my go to. Rapala Husky Jerk also. When the water is warmer then the high dollar Megabass and Lucky Craft get the call.

As far as cost I price baits in terms of bags of Senkos. A vision 110 is 3 bags of senkos. If you can keep it away from toothy critters the 110 will be in your box long after the senkos are gone. Lucky Craft=2 bags senkos Rogue and Husky = 1 bag of senkos. A tip from the bait monkey....

Like DW, I have a bunch of them, and many are older. being that I've spent a lot of time targeting Striped Bass, some of those older lures got a lot of use, because they still catch fish.

I can't say I have "a" favorite of any type of lure. They can all have a time & place that they'll produce.

I also very much like LC Pointers, and have a few of the Ito's, but haven't used them as much as the Pointers so have not given them enough time to say they've worked well.

Rebel Minnows & RedFin's still catch plenty of fish. I don't know how many Bombers I have. Striped Bass don't know that they're old school and neither do bass.

I like the Rapala X-Raps a lot, and probably have more of their saltwater versions than I do the freshwater. Husky Jerks still catch fish also.

I've caught some bass on the Rogue's too.

Yozuri had an older & larger version of the Pin's Minnow series, ( Pin's Magnet) that's no longer made, and I've done well with them. I'm a big fan of the Pin's Minnows and believe that a lot of bass anglers overlook them because of their size. You may not catch huge fish with them, but even 3 to 4 lb fish will grab them!
