Do Big Baits Always Catch Bigger Fish?

A small jig or a small worm will also catch large fish if fished right.
The smaller fish are usually more aggressive than larger ones, and might hit the little jig/ worm earlier though. IMO, this too is a function of the location.
I've only been bass fishing for three years, and targeting bigger fish during the last two. So my experience obviously doesn't count for much. I have caught at least a dozen of 5# + on 1/4 and 1/2 oz jigs (yes, I weigh my fish).
But here's a breakdown of the 7# + bass I caught over the last 3 years.
P.S. I have a saying that goes like this; "If a spinnerbait is all you fish, then that's what you're going to catch all your fish on, big or small."

If you want to catch big bass it's not just the size of the bait that matters, it's the point at which you place the bait and the technique you use to present the bait imo.
I have also found that when it comes to friends, a good friend will come and bail you out of jail, but best friends will be right there beside you saying d**n that was fun !!!

On baits with hanging trebles youll catch alot of fish off of reaction strikes, from big to small.
But back to the original question... not always *see avatar pic
EDIT: I've also had days where a weedless 6" hudd was tearing up 1 pounders, on one of these days jigs fished exactly the same were catching fish, but the hudd had em beat 2:1

How many times does this happen, probably almost daily with me. 2 people fishing the same lure, live or cut bait, same area and one person catches nothing or small one and the other fisherman gets a large fish, next day it's vice versa.
