The Scrounger Jighead is fairly new to the bass fishing world, however, this lure has made a big impact so far. There are so many soft plastics that work great on a scrounger jighead. You can fish with grubs, worms, swimbaits, jerkbaits and many others. The key is finding out which soft plastics will work best with these jigheads. Some baits work great while others don’t look good at all. A slow and steady retrieve is the key to giving these baits their action. Use these lures around shallow water cover such as weeds, docks, wood and rocks and you will catch plenty of largemouth bass.

If you want to use the Scrounger in deeper water, the Carolina rig is a great rig for this. You can cast it out and swim it back, drift with it on a windy day or slow troll it too. This gives you some options for presenting a Scrounger and your favorite soft plastic to deep water fish.
Best Baits on the Scrounger Jighead
A Scrounger jighead and a soft plastic minnow is an awesome combination. The swimming action you will get with a slow and steady retrieve is just flat out awesome.
Turn your minnow baits and soft plastic jerkbaits into a swimbait by rigging it on a Scrounger.
The skinnier finesse worms also look great on a Scrounger jighead. Slowly swim them in the shallows and you’ll catch a lot of largemouth bass.
