I see lots of articles and people posting what they caught their fish on,
and it seems like Drop shot, Wackey rig, top water, crank baits and Texas rigs dominate
the conversation.

So I ask, does anybody use Shakey head anymore ?
Is it just not effective technique??

I used the Shakey heads with plastic crawls.

I still use a shaker head as well as all the others mentioned. They are all tools that can be used depending upon conditions and situations at hand.

Dont tell the Fork guys the shakey head is a dying technique. That bait probably accounts for more money in tournament winnings out there than anything else.

Up until a week ago, it’s been extremely windy—difficult to fish a shaky head in those conditions if you don’t have poles/talons/spot lock

Or maybe it's so good that nobody is talking about it. But really, of course they still catch fish. I think the shakey head is a great bait that catches them year round in all conditions.

Yep, I guess my watermelon red flukes will have to find a new home. No shakey heads here. I change top waters, worms, jigs, cranks all day long, but not my shakey head set up.

I have one tied on 100% of the time in my boat. Actually have 2 different set ups, 1 - Baitcast/MH rod for 3/8oz & above, and 1 - Spinning/Med rod for 1/4oz and below.
