Upright soft plastic bill pushes water and creates rocking motion
Juices the swimming action of any plastic trailer
Versatile – can be fished fast, slow, high or low
This 35-year-old Scrounger Jighead design has proven deadly on bass. The Scrounger Jighead's upright soft plastic bill pushes water up and around, creating a rocking motion that really juices the swimming action of any plastic trailer you add. Run it fast or slow, high or low, as a search bait or bounced on the bottom. The longer the Scrounger's bill, the greater the water resistance, and the higher/faster your bait can run.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheBigO Just what I expected!
I have purchased these before and they always do what I expect them to do. It is a great bait presenter under many different uses. They can be fished from the top to the bottom and catch fish. Wouldn't be caught without them.........

Rated 5 out of 5 by jzFish works great
I wasn't to sure about these but after trying them out I am now a believer. The action alone made me a believer. I caught my first fish on one today with a super fluke jr. rigged on it. They bounce pretty good off cover and seem to be weedless. The largemouth just about swallowed the thing. Great lure, simple to use, and a super sharp hook.

I bought the 1/8 oz jigs last year and just tried one today. I rigged a Kalin 3" grub on it and cast it into my favorite pond. It went to the bottom and after about 2 seconds I raised the rod tip and a 5lb bass ate it. I next caught another good bass and a decent pickerel. I'm going to try different plastics as I go through this Fall. The side to side action is effective.

My dad and I went to Hyco lake and caught 12 white bass and 2 largemouth bass in 2 hours. We also hooked 2 other largemouths but when they jumped they became unhooked.

The descriptions have SLB, SMB and SSB in them. Pretty sure that's for long, medium and short bill. I agree that the product descriptions for these could be better. I like the long bill 1/8 or 3/16 oz.
I had the best luck throwing this type jighead (not Scrounger) with a Fluke in large openly spaced pads, just swimming it over and around the pads. The Fluke would come off a pad, wiggling, streaming bubbles, and would get nailed almost immediately!
Use 10-12 # test with the light jigs and 15 # for the heavier jigs. I use soft hollow belly swimbaits and worms with a large paddle tail . They are very effective by reeling slowly with an occasional quick jerk. I fish them close to bottom by inetially starting off the bottom and letting them drop back to the bottom at the end of one my quick jerks. Try to keep a good eye on the line while dropping because this is the usual time of the strike.Good luck!
THE JUGS THEMSELVES ARE PRETTY SUBSTANTIAL. I WAS SUPRISED BUT IN A GOOD WAY. I HAVE THE 1/2 & 3/4 OUNCE BAITS AND HAVE HAD GREAT SUCCESS WITH THEM. THE 1/2 CAN BE FISHED SHALLOW OR DEEP WITH A 5 INCH BAIT EASILY. I PROBABLY WONT GO LESS THAN 4 INCH WITH THE 1/2. THE 3/4 CAN HADLE A 7 INCH SWIMBAIT EASILY.
