Shaky Head Rig

Recommended Posts

I'm staring to pick up the fine craft of shakey head fishing. I was wondering as to what worms the bass resource community recommends. Thanks in advance

I like the Zoom Shakey head worms when bass are particularly finicky or in the winter and Biospawn Plasma tail when bass are a little more active or I am looking for a bigger presentation.

When I throw a shakey head, it's usually with a Roboworm.

Anything from Kicker Fish. The Hightail 4" and 7" hole shot worms. The 11" ribbon tail is good in the summer. I've had success on their 6" and 8" lizards. The action on their stuff on a shaky head is wicked. Those little air pockets work wonders.

Z Man Finesse wormZ are great because they float to well and they're so tough.

GYCB Kut-Tail.

I have heard this is THE most popular soft plastic in Japan. 

Other than worms, try the Rage Tail Craw and MegaStrike MegaTube Craw.

*If you like the Havoc Bottom Hopper and Zoom Trick Worm type worms go onto Facebook look up a small company Gator Baits, They sell a worm that is identical to both and is a little cheaper. The last time I bought from him they were $3 a dozen. I always try to buy local or from small companies.

I think that Zoom trick worms are a place to start, but there are many different options, some more regionally available than others.   I don't get too concerned about whether a worm "floats" or not.  Believe it or don't but if you own a worm blower you can inflate the tail of any soft plastic worm and get it to rise off the bottom a little or somewhat.

The reigns bubbling shaker is pretty awesome on a small shakey head. I got a pack with MTB and need to find some more.

Original Trick Worm if you want it to float up. The "Super Salt Plus"  & the "Better Than Salt" will not float up, but slowly fall to the bottom. The latter sometimes works better when the bite is tough.

Another option to consider is the Owner Ultra Shakeyhead with screw in attached to the jig.  Pair this with a Gary Y mini craw and you can rig this to be weedless by screwing the head of the bait into the jig and passing the hook through the bait to lie flat against the back.  I would recommend the green or brown jigs in 3/16 oz. and plastics colors  in watermelon with red flake or pumpkin with green and black flake.

Cast along the weed edges and reel in slowly.  You should have success.

Good luck.
