Flick'n technique

Recommended Posts

I went to Bass Pro during my lunch break today and picked up some "Flick'n Shimmy" worms.  I also bought the "flick'n shimmy" jig heads to go with them.  I happened to see them in this week's flyer, so I thought I would give them a try for some shakey head fishing.  The product description says:

"Perfected in Japan, flick'n is a hot new variation on shaky head and wacky style fishing. There are two key aspects to this deadly, mostly vertical technique: the use of specially designed, super-soft pre-curved worm baits, and an emphasis on drop action. The ends of the ''bent'' worm wave wildly (like live tentacles) on the fall; simply ''flick'' the rod tip slightly to vary the action."

I tried looking up "Flick'n", but cannot find anything on it.  Does anyone know anything about this type of fishing?

Thanks in advance!

The name you're looking for is Flick Shake.

Don't take my google link as offensive.  Don't mean it that way at all.

I use it a lot on the steep drop offs here in my lake.  Works great.  You can use almost any soft plastic worm you want.  I prefer worms that are straight as opposed to a worm with a curly tail or something.

Flick'n is basically slightly shaking your rod.

action will look like this...

Great thank you both.  I am not offended by your google link.  I asked for help and you are helping me!  I am not much of a worm fisherman and want to learn, so I am not familiar with everything yet.  That helps a lot.  Thanks again!

Just remember, the only stupid question is the one that you don't ask.

I think I watched Fishing University last year with Tom Mann, Jr and they were using Buckeye's Flick-It. Sounds like the same setup...and of course they were killing 'em!

Another good visual.

The flick-shake worm is shaped like that to give it its own natural action, you are not supposed to move it at all while it is sinking. That is what I have read and it seems to work awesome.

That video was awesome, thanks for sharing!  I am excited to try this method out on my local ponds.  Bring on the heat to thaw them out!  Thanks again everyone!!!

Ironic that a worm with its own built in action would have a name like "Flick-Shake," which are verbs. ;D

You can let them drop, and I do just that sometimes, but then its just a weighted worm. The show is in the shaking.

Great technique that I will be using more of this year. I have a friend that does really well with it with Senkos.
