Hi yall. i have been trying to learn the shaky head rig lately and i will say it does get a lot of bites. but i am having a problem hooking them. have been using a 7ft md action rod with 8 pound suffix braid. for the most part they have been shallow bites, less than 5 ft of water. I have tried not snapping the rod and just loading up and reeling in but that doesnt even seem to work. i was hoping someone could give me some advise on what i am doing wrong if it is either wrong rod, line, or can give me some advice so i can start landing these fish because it is making me madder than a one legged waitress working at the IHOP :cussin:.
