This 35-year-old Luck-E-Strike 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.

Finally Used It
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.

extreme line twist!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Caused extreme line twist, jighead just spins in circles, tried multiple soft plastics baits on it and it still spun in circles to varying degrees. Buyer beware, very disappointed after reading rave reviews before I bought them.

Disapointed in BG
Have purchased the 3/4 oz Long Bill scrounger before and they were good........but this last order
was NOT satisfactory. The plastic bill collapses during the retrieve, thus there is no wobble at all.
I tried to slow the retrieve but that didn't help either.
Would like to trade these in for the older version that don't collapse. HATE TO GIVE A BAD REVIEW BUT THIS BATCH WAS BAD.

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.
