There was a patent back in the 60's for the oscillating head jig that became the Scrounger jig and plastic tails used mostly in salt water back then.microtek60 said:who invinted it?

You need to remember that artist arrange products for photos, not fisherman. Some must of thought that the picture look more balanced arranged that way. Use the lures with the collars up!! Also the Wiggle heads haven't been manufactured since 1995 and the inventory that Chart Bait has is old and the collars may have taken a set. The original Scrounger and the new Aaron Martens models had both long thin (.05) collars and shorted more rounded thicker (.06) collars depending on the weight'. 5/8 oz to 1 1/2 oz round collars. You should also trim the tapered lead cone behind the collar on the wiggle heads to get the flukes or what ever further forward. Aaron's scroungers don't need any modification and have Gamakatsu hooks.KeithsCatch said:Here is a photo of the Scrounger jigs that I ordered from Charkbait.com and they show the lips pointing up and down just like the ones I got:
The heavier jigs had them pointing down like a crankbait. The lighter smaller one had them pointing up. Do they all need to point up?
They oscillate back and forth like a crank bait. If you try to use them without a trailer, worm, grub soft plastic jerk bait , they tend to spin around. You can tie hair on them and use with a short grub also.Ouachita said:I found a discussion on that bait, somewhere off in ethernet land, where the blade is described as roughly rotating like a one-bladed prop plus it flutters, depending on speed of retrieval.
That explains the trouble someone was having with the bait twisting their line. Can't be used as is? I think they were discussing dressing the hook with feathers.They oscillate back and forth like a crank bait.
