Shakey Head

Recommended Posts

I just got a new mold for 6" finesse worm and poured some "floating" ones for a shaky head.  Put them on a Spot Remover pro model jig head and checked them in the aquarium.  SWEEET!!!  These jigheads have a flat side and it really does sit on the flat edge, and the worm tail sticks straight up - just what I was looking for.  

But I have a concern - the 3/16 oz jighead has a hook that is only about 1.5" long - that's a lot of worm for a 1.5" hook.  Are these jig heads made for shorter (e.g., 4" worms)?  I'm concerned I won't hook up very well with the fish.  I searched a little for longer shank hooks on a shaky head but haven't really found anything, plus I'm wondering if a longer shank will impair the action of the worm tail.  Any ideas what to use with a bigger 6" (fairly thick too) finesse worm like this?  Will this short shank jighead hook up with the fish?  Thanks for your comments.

The short shank is made for smaller worms.
