Luck-E-Strike Scrounger Jigheads
I used this for the first time today, and I'm very impressed. Its fall, and the water temps are cooling off. I rigged it with a 4" PowerBait Power Minnow. I caught sevaral nice bass working around pontoons, docks, and dying weed lines. I definitely look forward to using Scrounger Jigheads a lot more.

These work extremely well, especially with a tiny "Zoom" "fluke" or similar type minnow imitator. The best bait is a hollow body minnow that I found at "BassProShops" Richmond, Va store. They don't have it in their catalog, but they have a display in the store. Because it has a hollow body when the fish bite, they get more of the hook, causing better hook-ups. This thing does basicly the same as a spinnerbait as far as producing sound and feel. If it stops vibrating, set the hook," they got it"! Try one in different sizes and with different size baits. The one ounce model is big enough to use with swimbaits. The vibration is unbelieveable. Disadvantages: They need a little larger hook, but the hooks are quality "Gamakatsu" hooks.

good idea, poor excecution
I used some jigheads similiar to this a while back and they workid great! I couldn't remember where I got them or what brand they were. I found these and ordered what I thought was the same thing, not even close! The clear plastic 'lip' on these was thin, soft, flexible, and each one had a different shape depending on how they were laying in the pack. The other brand I used before had a much stiffer 'lip' and a concave shape that had a good action in the water. This looked like a cheap imitiation! It looks like they saw a picture of the other one and made one like it without actually seeing and using one. I'm back to searching for the Real Deal!

Great addition to my tackle
I fish Lake Fork, Texas exclusively this time of the year. On my fist cast with a 4 1/2 inch Shadallious in a Sexy Shad Style I got a 5 pounder. About an hour later I decided to share with a neighbor and walked out on my dock, throw the bait into about 3 feet of water, start reeling fast and bam a catch a four pounder. Most of my neighbors have made their orders for their own from Bass Pro. Great addition. I fish it wherever I would fish a spinner bait but I hang on to my rod a little harder, A little super glue keeps the trailer on nicely. I would like a 3/8 with 5/0 hook - both large lip and small. I fish about 20 days a month.
