Aaron Martens Lure

Recommended Posts

i watched mark zona's fishin show yesterday and he and aaron martens were using a bait made by martens that looked awesome! they are called  the "scrounger jig" . just want to know if any of you guys use them and how they do? martens said on the show that he won like 80% of his tournement $$$ with that bait alone.

thanks

I have a bunch of them and got them from ***.com (was the only place I could find them). They are great. Put a fluke on them and there you go.

Scrounger heads. They are impressing a lot of people. Aaron should have kept them a secret a little while longer. I've been resisting the urge to buy some but I can't hold out much longer.

I live near the Coosa River where he filmed that show and most people around here already know about them and use them for both spots and largemouth. I use them and catch alot of fish w/ them but i always go back to a shaky head and crankbait/topwater for when they are schooling (i like the odds w/ 6 hooks vs. just one)

I'm assuming the only difference is the amount of action the lure will have.

Mine are on backorder right now.

Will a smallmouth be enticed by them?

Yes they will, I got a few smallies this weekend on one.

they seem great for smallmouth. $6-9 bucks for a two pack is a little steep though. It sucks that most of the good sizes are sold out at TW right now...

I recently got two packs (1/8 and 1/4) at another site - I can't use a link since I'm a new member.

Ok, say I'm using a super fluke, what would be the diving depth of the 1/4 ounce long bill and the 1/4 ounce short bill?

It's not a diving lure. It kind of acts like a chatterbait if you know what I mean.

The name of the berekly one is called the "manic shad". I bought one the other day and tried it out yesterday. Was not too impressed with it. It seemed to have very inconsistent action. On one cast it would seem to work fine, then on the next cast it would start rolling over and spinning. I played around with the "bill" a little bit but, could not seem to find any consistencies as to what caused it to roll on some casts, wiggle and vibrate on another, and then do nothing on the next. Speed of retrieve had something to do with it. It seemed like I had to get it going just right and then try to maintain that speed to keep it working.

Are the scrounger heads that sensitive?
