Tips on Fishing the Shaky Head

Spread the love

Soft plastic baits definitely play a major role in many of my days on the water and set a baseline for many of the bass fishing tips and tactics I rely upon.  Coupling different types of soft plastic baits with different styles of presentations always reap benefits under a wide range of environmental conditions.

The shaky worm fishing rig is one presentation method helping many anglers adjust to those days when tough fishing conditions prevail on the water …

In this video, Bassmaster Elite Pro, Jeff Kriet provides an “on the water” demonstration of how the shaky worm (also called jig worm) rig works under even the toughest of conditions:

Shaky worm fishing works best when scent-enhanced worms are rigged on fairly light (1/16 to 1/8 oz) jig-head coupled with light line and a slow to dead-sticking retrieve.

Give the shaky worm rig a try the next time you’re on the water and encounter tough fishing conditions!

Searching For Fishing Lake Maps?

Ever wonder how to get hold of fishing maps for the lakes and ponds around your area?

Compiling information about fisheries is the responsibility of state fish and wildlife agencies and many have created maps or pamphlets with pertinent information about the waterbodies they manage. In today’s Internet-dominated, info-sharing world, many agencies provide access to these maps via downloadable PDF documents.

Some are direct links to the state’s lake list while others will take a little “poking around”…

We created this article to aggregate the links to free fishing map resources for each state and list the state page links on a regional basis as shown on the following map (borrowed from Fix The Primaries)…
