    I mainly use swimbaits on day trips, but lately i have noticed some regulars using chartreuse twin tail grubs (scampies) and doing fairly well. What are your thouhts on this? Do scampies really work?
    What about creature baits for winter bass? Let me know what you think

    They worked in the seventy's, rootbeer Scampi's were also a hot bass and sculpin lure.

    80's, 90's and 2000's too LOL
    I still keep rootbeer and chartreuse in my box. In cold water or when the fish seem sluggish/picky, try rigging them with a thin wire worm hook and use a sliding bullet or egg sinker, fish it slow. Shape the head with your teeth or a blade if you need to. Good on winter LMB bass also. Unibutter can help.

    Sometimes "Old School" is the new hot bait. I have caught thousands of Calicos and Sandies on them. A few years ago I was at the Fred Hall show and a guy had bags of ten for a dollar. I picked up 20 bags. I still have some but wish I bought more. White lead head strip of squid and a chartreuse Scampi or Mojo and you have the hands down best sand bass lure ever.

    Yes, Yes, Yes...They work just fine. I tend to like the "mojo's" seem a little softer. Don't forget to throw some green/red with flakes.

    They do work well. The last time I used them fishing in the deep water around Palos Verdes, I caught a large sculpin on a white sampi. I used it on a double dropper loop and the scampi had a 1/2 oz red head.

    Pink and white works best for me on Sculpin and sandies.
