I have two questions that I hope havent been beaten to death.

What colors are the tried and try for the shakeyhead in clear water or in muddy?

How do you rig your Fluke?
Thank you in advance

Canít help with shakeyhead question. Donít fish one too much but when I do, itís just a normal jig head and worm. No secret.

I use a Grande Bass baby rattlesnake in ssabednarg color in clear or muddy water on every lake I fish. Haven't found anything better.

Sure ssabednarg, lol. That really is a color, it's grandebass spelled backwards and they are fish catching son-of-guns. Try'em if you can find'em.

Donít fish a shakey head in muddy water. It is a visual lure.

Watermelon or green pumpkin fluke rigged with a swivel and 18" leader. I use a small split shot or two, depending on wind and water conditions.

I fish a fluke weightless on a 4/0 wide gap hook. Same set-up for my "senkos", so easy to swap baits on same rig. If I stick with the fluke, I do like BNK and add a swivel in-line to prevent line twist.

YouTube "Double Fluke Rig". That's a fun rig to throw if you get into some schoolers.

Fluke weightless on 4/0 hook. Baitfish or watermelon red

Shakyhead 1/8oz Green pumpkin, watermelon red, red shad are my go to colors. Red shad works for me in dirtier water, but I haven't tried in muddy water

I guess the good thing about bass fishing is that everyone has a little different take on things. I fish a shaky head in muddy water all the time. Especially this time of year. Shaky head pitched around heavy cover with a black and blue or black and red craw or creature bait will get you bit.

Me too. Actually all lures are visual lures.

LOL, wow, crazy that not even the basics are understood on a bass fishing forum. Ever heard of night fishing?

Shaky head: 1/8 oz. jig head with a 4" Yum Dinger, green pumpkin with chartreuse tail. This green pumpkin color is quite a bit darker than other brands and the chartreuse tip is very bright. My go-to bait!
