Shakey Head Go-to Baits

Recommended Posts

Well, I made a search on "shakey head", and couldn't find anything relating towards what baits work best on this rig. So I decided to post on it. I just started getting into this rig, and have had minimal success, and I plan to try to get more experienced with the shakey come spring. Now I know straight tail worms are typically the favored bait for this rig, but from what I've seen in various posts, there are many other baits that work well on the shakey style.

Can you name your top 3 most used baits on the shakey head? Thanks guys  ;).

Definatley the Berkley Shakey Worm because of the scent and it stands perfect on a Spot Remover head. Can't wait to try the new Slim Shakey Worms they are coming out with...super-finesse  8-)

I almost always throw a straight tail worm on my shakey heads but I will occasionally use creature baits like beavers or Paca craws to resemble crawfish. I've seen people use minnow baits like flukes and what not to look like feeding baitfish also.

Roboworms 4 & 6" straight tails, works great for drop shotting too.

I love the Berkley Shakey Worm, it has been by far my best worm for this presentation. Oddly I love Roboworms for dropshoting, but have  zero confidence with them on shakey head. I really don't fish much else on the shakey head any more since "discovering" the Berkley worm, it has worked for me everytime.

1: Berkley Shakey Worm

2: *** ***

3: Zoom Finesse Trick worm

I mostly agree with Matt, just made one slight change. It's really hard to beat that Power Bait Shaky worm, once they get a sniff, there's no going back.

6" Roboworm Straight Tail. They're hand-poured which gives them a little quiver that bass can't resist.

I caught more shaky head bass in 08' on the Berkley Power Shaky Worm than any other plastic.  I can't wait to see the slim Powerbait version too.  

I picked up quite a few packs of the Berkley hand-pours this past fall, and I can't wait to give them a shot this spring as well.

Is there a time when bass prefer one action of a shakeyhead worm over another?

I ask this because some worms are stiffer and dont have near the action as a longer more shakey worm.

1) Webb's Baits black magic

2) Berkley Power Craw

3) Berkley Beast

Those are my top three. If one's not working, another one is.

Not a true "shakey head" presentation, but a weightless trick/finesse worm fished like a shakey is killer.

1. Trick Worm

2. Finesse worm

3. Fish Stalker 6" finesse worms
