Lets see your shakey head combo

Recommended Posts

I was just curious to see what you guys use for shakey heads?

I'm using a revo stx paired with a fenwick 6'6 light action rod.... kind of  an unorthodox combo.

NOTHING!!! ;D

Had no success with the spinning gear I used them with and have not tried them on my baitcasting gear yet.

But my brother-in-law uses a 7' medium Compre spinning rod, CPS70MB, with a Shimano Symetre reel and Berkley Vanish Transitions fluorocarbon line, not sure of pound test. I watch him load the boat with quality bass, as many as 15 in a single trip with just that outfit on shakeyheads only so he must be doing something right with it. I figure the rod's sensitivity has to be helping so his rod choice I plan to copy but I'll probably use a Pflueger Medalist spinning reel instead and will be hitting this board for specific line recommendations since I heard that Yozuri was the shizz-nit!

BP PQ2000B on a Loomis SHR822S.  On my first trip out with that combo the boater somehow hit the rod as he shut a rod locker, bringing the lid down on the top 8".  He then stepped on the lid & I swear you could hear the rod break.  But when he opened the lid I couldn't see any damage.  I've been using it for a couple of year since & caught plenty of fish without a problem.

I have to set ups, not dedicated setups, but its what I use.

reel:

Shimano Sustain 2500 - 8lb bps flourocarbon

Shimano Shara 2500 - 6lb yo-zuri

rod:

7' M fast action St Croix mojo bass

6' 8'' Gander Mt Pro Series Shakey rod

Not high dollar, but caught me a bunch of fish and a couple over 5lbs!

I'm with Toledo in that I don't have a dedicated setup for it but when I do use it, it is on one of the two combos depending on the size of the shakey I am throwing.

I have a St. Croix TBC69MLXF with an Abu Morrum SX1600C Ultra Mag Forell for the lighter stuff.

Also use a St. Croix EC70MF with an Abu Morrum SX1600C Ultra Mag for the heavier stuff.

for a shakey head combo, this is a little on the heavy side no?  Or I could very easily be missing somthing here.

Spinning: St. Croix LTB 6' 9" MLXF paired with a Shimano Stradic MgFB 1000.  One spool with 8lb Power Pro and one with 6lb Flouro.

Casting: St. Croix LTB 6' 9" MLXF paired with Shimano Curado 200E7 with 8lb Power Pro.

Both rods are built on the same blank.  For my style of fishing this is as good as I have found and couldn't resist getting the same rod in both spinning and casting.

Since I'm bored...I took a couple of pics.

Shakey head spinning is a Steez 6'9" w/Advantage 2000 and 8lb trilene fluorocarbon. I have this same setup for drop-shot with 6lb fluoro, and that is basically it for me with spinning rods and reels.

My shakey head casting rod is a CR722 glx with a steez 103 and trilene 100% in 8lb. I love this little rod...I've rediscovered how fun it is to fish 6' rods. However, I wish I could fish it more often...it is limited due to my fishing style, and doesn't get wet very often.
