Recommended Posts

I want to get into Shakey Jig Head fishing for bass. What are some good Shakey Jig Heads? What kind of plastic worms do you like to use with it?

I just use an outkast money jig. Will work for jig-worm and a shakey head. Best baits are usually a finnesse straight-tail worm.

i favorite jig is the gander mountain shakey head, with the football head shape, and screw lok.

my favorite baits, Roboworms! by far!

but basically any straight tail worm are the best for shaking. zoom trick worms, roboworms, etc.

i have had quite a bit of success using a shakey jig and crawfish looking plastics, like the YUM craw pappy.

So what is the difference in technique when fishing a shakey jighead and a regular jig and worm combo? Do you just let the shakey jighead drop to the bottom and twitch it? I've always just used a small black jig and a 6" power worm with a ribbon tail and bounce it off the bottom back to the boat.

Shakey heads are typically not twitched or bounced instead just drug across the bottom... The bait sliding across the bottom gives it a lot of action.

Hi MidC -

I like the Northland Shakey Ball heads, and the Owner Ultra Head shakey jigs. Some of the shakey jig heads have hooks that are too heavy for my tastes.

As far as worms, Northland Shakey worms are good, Zoom finesse worms, Roboworms, and Zoom Shakey Tails are all ones I've used. Seem to work for me.

Nels - Tonka described it pretty well. Variations on a common theme really, and it's all jigworming to me, but jigworming as it seems to be defined generally is more of a vertical presentation with an exposed hook jig with fish hitting on the drop, and shakey head is more like a light football head with a lot of bottom contact. Although frankly, either fished either way works. It's a pretty blurry line between the two sometimes. I guess if it catches fish it doesn't much matter what one calls it...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

I like using the Buckeye spot remover with the wire twist lock, picasso shakedown, and picasso shake-e-football if I am skin hooking. If I am running and exposed hook I use the all-terrain mighty jig.

I try to keep my selection of worms to these: zoom trick worms, culprit ribbontail worm, kinami senko

    • Nope.  It has been going on long enough to avoid that. 
    • Sous Vide... 😀 If not sous vide, then a dutch oven with a steamer thing. If it is too big for a dutch oven  with one of those folding steamer things then I would dig out my 18 quart roaster oven .  I think they even come with a rack.  
    • I think maybe Lund was too aggressive with the price increases in recent years of easy money or something.  When I bought my provee in 98, the difference between it and the comparable Alumacraft was only a few hundred bucks on a 20k package.   And the trim on the Lund looked nicer and more durable.     Some years later and I was at a boat show or something and the prices on ProVs had gone up and the difference was much more.      Presumably a deliberate decision to make ProV a premium product and insert a few other models  in there.   
    • Great call on the chuck, I'm still contemplating it, it sounds fun to give it a try though. At this point I'm leaning on pouring some smoke at it and trying a batch of pastrami,  just have to figure out a way to steam it in the end..
    • Minky, what lb test are you using?   I’m running 2 and 3 Micro Ice on pretty much everything I have for panfish.  I’ve been impressed with what it can handle along with its fish ability.  Pairing with the right rods helps a bunch too.
    • I had to do the same fix on my ‘Ol 96er.
    • Can you leave a propane tank on all summer or does that have to come off at the end of season
    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
