Default Re: ARTICLE: Sure Bet For Summer Bass? Try a Simple Shaky Head

You don't have to use a "shakey" worm, you can use a craw or creature or tube. Something different, & sometimes that makes a difference. I am starting to use 10lb braid with no leader, Fireline is the same diameter as 4lb mono, & Spider Wire stealth is the same as 2lb mono. When the bite is subtle it really helps. I have no problem fighting the fish with a 7' med action spinning rod. Mo, try "shaking" as the bait falls, this will help it get down through the weeds, the real problem is the hangups but if it is the only way to get fish it's no problem.
Old fishermen never die, their rods just go limp.
