Can be very discouraging.  Just got done watching a dozen yesterday follow my jerkbait 25ft and never hit.  Tried all sorts of kinds and retrieves.  They definitely did not like the rapala's as they would rise way to fast.  

I wonder if a slow sinking jerkbait would have tempted them into biting?

Might have, might not; always worth a try.  Sometime fish aren't in a positive feeding mood, where they follow, but won't bite.  Downsizing to a smaller profile sometimes does the trick, but not always.   Often times environmental conditions can make stubborn/neutral fish TURN ON in an instant.  At least from smallies, I've experienced situations where I was fishing a flat, with no wind, for an hour two without a bite.  Then the wind picked up, put a chop on the water, and BAM, hookups for me an my buddy.  Those fish were there and not biting, but the wind and chop turned them from neutral to positive.
