Shakey Head Worm?

Recommended Posts

What do you guys(gals...being PC) use for shakey head fishing? Do you want a worm that floats somewhat so the tail stays upright and doesn't droop down towards the bottom?

Strike King finesse worms. I like something that floats and sticks up when sitting on the bottom.

I prefer a paddle tail that undulates when I'm hoping/moving the worm as I don't let the bait sit long enough for the plastic worm to rise/fall on its own.

That GYCB Kut Tail bait is something special on a shakey head.  I also like to use Zoom finesse worms, Rage Tail Baby Craws, and on occasion, I will also add a small Keitech Swing Impact (regular, not the FAT).

Zoom Trick Worm

 

I have some of those Kriet worms that were made for shakey heads but haven't thrown them yet.

Zoom trick worms and finesse trick worms, and no I don't care if it floats or not, except in the winter when I am dead sticking them I prefer a floating worm such as a zman worm or squarell tail worm.

If you want a worm to try out, take a look at the Dizzy underwater! Cool thing too is this worm still has a salted formula because most salted worms won't stand up!

Zoom trick worm.

If you can find them,check out the action on a Havoc Boss Dog on a shakey head.

Zoom ultra vibe speed worm and Bass Assassin Tapout worm are two mainstays. 

 

Also use Zoom super speed craws, Zoom trick worms, Zoom magnum finesse worms, and Berkley chigger craws.

99% of my shakeyhead and dropshot fishing is done with this bait.  I will switch to a 6" Kut-Tail if I go to power shakey head fishing.

I have Senko style baits poured minus the salt, works great . To the poster ShortFish I really like the look of the Biz Baits worm , might need to check them out when I run low . I also like the Xcite bait Maximus worm for a power shakey head as it also stands up and more importantly catches big fish . I can also cut that bait down if I want a smaller profile.

The shaky head in the Bizz Baits video looks like a Megastrike Shake2 Pro Model head. My favorite shaky head!

No bad choices above.

 

I had tremendous luck last year with Reins Swamp Mover.  Got bit by big fish on days when nothing else was working.  Bass Assassin Tapout is probably my second most used.

If you're just looking for maximum action, you won't beat a floating worm

like a Strike King 3x, Z-Man 10x or Berkley Bottom Hopper.

But shaky heads are generally used for inactive fish in a passive mood,

fish that might be turned off by too much action. 

 

Neutrally buoyant worms move very well, because there's no upward or downward influence

on the worm. Neutrally buoyant shaky worms include Roboworms and Brewers Slider Worms.

Another shaky worm I've come to like is the Strike King 5.0” Fat Baby Finesse Worm
