Keitech Custom Leech/Easy Shaker?

Recommended Posts

Anyone get their mitts on these baits. I have a few packs of each on the way for dropshotting and finesse presentations. If you used them or have a few packs on hand I would like to know what you think of these baits.

I have some Easy Shakers on the way. I want to see what they look like wacky rigged. Also ordered a couple packs of Jackall Rythm Wave paddle tails.

I have the Rhythm Wave swimbaits on the way as well. Jackall and Keitech are two of my favorite plastics companies. Going to give them a whirl.:)

I am going to do just that this weekend, going after SM in a small river.  

I expect them to work well.  I also expect them to be a one fish lure, as they are very thin.  I also think that they could be amazing on a split shot rig.

I tried them both on Mille Lacs last week on the drop shot rig. The bite was a little slow after about 8 inches of rain had fallen in the last few days and dirtied up the lake, but both baits caught some nice smallies.

As expected from Keitech, the action was absolutely outstanding on both, especially the Leech, but the durability was relatively poor with the Leech (3 fish per bait) and worse with the Shaker (1-2 fish per bait).

The Leech looks like it's going to a staple bait in my drop-shot bag. The Shaker, on the other hand, is solid but unspectular, and no better than a Roboworm.

Easy shakers aren't very durable, but man oh man the catch fish.  Drop Shot and shakyhead. 

Similar to the Hag's Tornado, just a bit more slender profile.

I picked up some of the leeches, but have yet to try them.  To the guy above who wants to Ned them, those heads are too bi/long IMO.  Maybe try a cocho cocho guard head or similar shorter shank option.  The solid bead of plastic at the head is TINY.

Were you able to try out the leeches on smallies? Curious how you did and how well they held up. Also, how did you rig them?

Thanks, HD

Hah, I had forgot about them until I saw this post.  I have been out a few times to some productive waters too.  

I have moved them to the top of my lure-mountain, so I will report back next time I get out.

I fished a tourney today on a super pressured lake with the Custom Leech and finished 3rd. I threw them all day, never changed, and caught around 40 fish ranging from 4" to 2.5lbs.

They are cool little baits, but they are very very little. My thoughts are if you're on pressured water throw them, if you just want to catch a big number of fish, or if you're taking kids out throw them.

I have been casting them on lite tackle with mosquito hook in really skinny water and the bass are just crushing them.  Also the lite colored ones take to a sharpie marker well allow you to customize for the hot color that day.  I had gone through all my black leechs and only had blue shiner color left which for some reason they would not touch.  Black sharpie to the rescue and the bite is back on.

I too have been messing around with the pack of Sexy Shad ones that I picked up.  I have used them while river fishing twice.   I have yet to catch a bass on one, but mainly because pan-fish just crush them the second they hit the water.  I was fishing them nose hooked with a 1/16oz Gopher jig with a hop and deadstick retrieve through deep pools.  

While they do catch fish, they only last maybe one or two hits the way I was fishing them.
