I probably won't explain this correctly. I am very new to this myself and just used a shakee head for the first time two weeks ago. It is a weighted hook. The head of the bait goes down with the end floating upward to make it look like the bait is feeding on the bottom. I actually had pretty good luck on my first try with them. I would definitely say it is worth a try.

I'm curious about this myself. I have Shakey heads but I struggle to identify the ideal scenario for using them. Is it best for open/deep water, for cover, etc? I'm just trying to figure out what the "right" time to throw one is.

'Bout anywhere, anytime a shakey-head will work. There are different versions that all do basically the same thing. What RW posted is unique, I've not seen those before....

Some are just a hook with a lead head. Some have a post or wire screw-lock to hold the worm. Some have a paper clip-looking doodad.

Me, I prefer The Spot Remover, Pro Model w/ the screw-lock. Usually 5/16oz with a finesse worm, maybe 1/4 oz for a trick.

One word for 'ya..........experiment!

Shakey heads are definitely a GREAT tool to have in your fishing arsenal. There are many brands and styles out there, and some of them look very different from others. Your basic Shakey head is a small jig style hook, usually with a flat bottom & some sort of screw lock for your bait. I personally prefer the shakey heads that have a flat bottom so the bait stands up better. The key to using a shakey head is to use a worm that floats, but you're not just limited to one style of worm, so use you're imagination. The basic idea is to imitate some forage poking around the lake bottom for food. As far as gear, you are going to want to use a 6'6"-7' spinning rod, medium power, fast action, 6-8lb flourocarbon, and a reel with a good drag system. Shakey heading is an extremely versitile technique, it catches fish like crazy and is one of my go to lures.

I started using shaky head jigs this year with a zoom trick worm. I throw it up around the bank and near down trees or or visible structure. Just throw it out, give it time to sink, and start hopping it along the bottom. You will miss a few fish and you will land some. Don't get over confident and don't get frustrated. Its all about learning. Sometimes you set a hook on a stump, yep did it, and sometimes you'll get a good fish too!
