Default Shakyhead Jigs

Anyone doing well with these? I bought a couple of dozen at BPS and used them alot this summer at Smith Mountain Res. in Virginia. I have caught quite a few smallies at Chatfield and Aurora this summer also. I really like the way the finesse worm stands up after the jighead hits the bottom!!* *I have been using YUM Houdini worms in Watermelon seed, green pumpkin and smoke/w/red flake. I also have bought a bunch of the Spot Remover jigs also and they are really easy to rig!

Anyone have any other worm suggestions?

You can also shorten the length of a Zoom Trick Worm and the floating qualities of the worm will make the tail stand straight up.* *

I haven't been down to Pueblo this year, but these jigs made their name at clear rocky southern resevoirs like Smith Mountain, Lanier, Table Rock, etc., so I bet they would work well there! They probably are and you Pueblo guys are sand bagging, LOL.

jet skis, waterskiers , big pleasure boats w. big wakes, and rain. i was down to the lake this morning, letting my lab have a good swim. the water has cleared a bit from last week, it is maybe a foot now. the water level is still going down, and that dosn't help.

Neal I thought they look so good that I purchased a large number of them earlier in the year. I have not been in a situation to apply them all summer. I know that Kirbydog had good luck with them earlier this year. I planned to use tham at Pueblo and have only been there once this year. Maybe this fall. I have heard very good things about them on other bass web sites. Coosa tackle company has their own worms that I purchased and they look great. Go to www.coosatackle.com and take a look.

That goes for you also milehigh they have pictures that will show you what we are talking about. The shakey head has an oversized hook for a better hook up.

What's the advantage to these over other premium finesse jigheads, other than perhaps a wider gap hook?

McFish, I couldnt get that website to load...

Don.. I think it has to do with how it falls and how it sits on the bottom. Then they sit at that 45 degree angle its suppose to look like a minnow feeding... when they sit at that 90 degree angle a worm coming out from the bottom.
They make all kinds of heads that cause these different angles I'm sure its all about preference.
