Bass fisherman are obsessed with productive finesse presentations such as Neko, drop shot and wacky rigging. The shaky head jig owned that limelight for a while and remains extremely effective for bass in a wide range of situations.
Wired2Fish’s Ryan DeChaine explains how he targets early summer bass near bluegill beds using a stand-up shaky jig paired with a floating worm – this combo presents the worm in a perfect upright package for maximum action and an excellent hookup ratio. He then covers his rod and reel setup, how productive areas can be found using side imaging, and the importance of boat control for accurate offshore casting accuracy.
