Scrounger Head Tricks | Bass Fishing

I still use the Flukes, just the normal Fluke.
You guys probably have those here, right?The straight-up Fluke, in, like, all the solid
colors. I fish upside down, flat side down,and all the colors, I trim the back on them.
Like, say, the smokin’ shad. On any type baitlike that where you want the wiggle, you can
kind of just take the shoulders off it, whereit has a flat top. Just make it kind of more
rounded. So I usually take a pair of sharpscissors and cut from the front to the back
almost. Just kind of take that corner off. And that makes the bait swim better. But I
do that even on the tiny ones. I throw a lotof tiny Flukes on the eighth ounce and the
3/16, I throw a lot of tiny Flukes. I do thesame thing. Do you fish it deep? Mm-hmm. I fish, my favorite size is
a 3/4, and if I had a one ounce I would probablyfish it a lot more, but a lot of times that
3/4 is my favorite. And he’s talking aboutthe scrounger, I hope you’re hearing me, but
the 3/4 with the Fluke, just a normal Flukepearl, or there’s a color called, it’s got
like a pearl hologram flake. I think it’sa custom color you’ve got to order. But you
do that on a, like, 10-12 pound line mostof the time. Then I fish it down to 40 feet. So, and you can cast, when I spool up a shakey
fish, 3/4 ounce, I usually put a 180 feetof line on it because I’m casting 150 at least.
And then I’m also letting it sink a lot oftimes. But a lot of times on that bait, if
you’re fishing deep, I don’t let it sink free-spool. Like, on some other baits I do. Like a shakey
head, a lot of times I’ll click it in gear. I’ll click my bail before it hits the bottom
just so it pendulums down a little, pullsthe line down because you get bit, and you’re
totally free-spooling a long cast you gotthat really lot of bow in your line, and you’ll
miss fish. So, like, on a shakey fish I dothat and on my football heads I’ll usually,
I might let them sink five or ten feet free-spool. Once I get past that I’ll put it in gear and
I’ll just hold it and let it pendulum down. And when it pendulums down, if a fish does
hit it, when it hits the bottom, you got alot more solid hook set than if you were letting
it fall free. A lot of times you’ll get alot of slack in there and you can’t get them. So that’s another thing I do with a lot, like
dropshotting on a long cast. I kind of clickit in gear and let it pendulum down, and by
the time it gets down it’s not, it’s likethis instead of maybe like that, you know.
You get that arc.
