Campbell Point Area


Sprint21fter

Recommended Posts

Fished Campbell Point area Dec. 30 on Thursday as the front was moving in and had an unbelievable day.

Started fishing at 9:00 am. A caught a 6lbder at 9:30. After that the fish that I caught were all keepers except for

a handful of shorts mixed in. There was one dock in the back of this cove that I was fishing that extended out

into 35ft of water and I was parralleling the dock with a scrounger with a fluke as a trailer and was catching fish every cast for 15 minutes. It was unbelievable. It was one of those days where everything was going right for me. I am sure that it was the similiar for the other boats that I saw on the lake since the wind was blowing and the pressure was dropping. I would count the scrounger down and slowly swim it back on a slightly bowed line so it would fall through the zone the fish were holding in. I caught my big fish on the inside of the point with some standing timber in 25ft of water. My best fish for the day would have gone for 22lbs of bass. Wish I was in a tournament. Caught 4 good limits throughout the day. Most of fish were kentuckies in the 3-3.5lb range. Caught the TBK slam also with the smallmouth being 2.5lbs. I will send some pictures in a few days.

Fished Shell Knob area after the front came through on Jan 1. Fished 1 hour and half with my wife and managed one good kentucky on a bluff. Caught it on the scrounger in 60ft but the fish hit the bait half-way down.

Like to know how other people did Dec. 30-31.

Nice job! I would have liked to be in a tourny with you with 22lbs. What was the water temp in those areas.

Water temps was 49 degrees on Dec. 30. The air temp was 65. Jan. 1 the temp dropped to 47 degrees.

I must be living under a rock again... I JUST looked at the "scrounger" jig head. What does the "blade" thing do. Does that make the jighead & bait rise back up & fall on retrieve ? Somewhat opposite a crankbait ? If so thats a pretty good idea...

There is no blade. There is a plastic cup looking bill on it. Basically it is just like a grub head with this bill on it. Let it sink to desired depth, slow retrieve back. This plastic bill just makes your bait vibrate like a crankbait. Tight wobble kinda like you would see out of a bandit crankbait.

quick video of swimming action i just found. Sweet music with the video :)

What is a scrounger thx

snakem out

A scrounger is a swim jig with a plastic guard in front of the hook instead of a weed guard. so they won't hang up in brush and trees very easily. I use it as a swim bait in deeper water. When you pull it through the water it swims like a regular swimbait and the plastic guard helps with the action as well. I use the 1/2 oz so if you do get snagged just let the bait fall back down and slowly yo-yo the bait back over and it normally will roll over.
