Shaky Head Fishing

Learn how to adapt the shaky head for Spring bass fishing including tips like shortening the worm and changing the way you work the bait to minimize short strikes once the transition to spawn begins.

We've talked about how to throw a shaky head for Summer and Winter Bass but the shaky head is also a deadly bait during the prespawn. Its not the most glamorous way to get a big bite but its incredibly effective. This method shines especially during the transition to the spawn. Once bass have bulked up for the spawn they become lazy as they wait for their eggs to mature. This is prime time to pick up the shakey head and load the boat with bass that aren't willing to chase a faster moving bait.
