With so many lures available on the market today, it is often a daunting task to decide what is good for a particular situation, time of day, water clarity and temperature. The jerkbait is a lure that can produce quality fish for almost all situations, in both still and moving water. What is more, the adaptability of this bait makes it a “go to” when crankbaits or spinnerbaits are not producing.
So you spent the weekend reading about an interesting new fishing technique that’s all the rave on the bass fishing tournament trail. You go to your local tackle shop, pick up all the components necessary, call your buddy and head out on the lake. Your friend decides to stick with the technique that he’s used to, while you rig up the new one and begin to try to fish it.
In this video, Brendan C. shows you how to rig soft plastics on a Shaky Head Jig and teaches you the basics of Shaky Head Fishing. When fishing gets tough, a Straight Tail Worm rigged on a Shaky Head Jig is a great option to help you put some bass in the boat. The Shaky Head Rig is a must have if you’re fishing as a non-boating or co-angler. Its subtle stand up quivering action makes this finesse technique one of the best for finicky bass.
