I have never fished a Shakey Head. Just looking at the design of it, I’m wondering if the hookup is good on them?

Never have had a real problem getting hooked up throwing finesse type stuff - trick worms, finesse worms, etc.

I’m wanting to try the Xcite Shakey Head on a large worm. Anyone used these? If so, is the hookup good for these?

I have recently become a believer in the Shaky Head. I’ve been amazed at the quality of hookup Ratio with cheap big bass bites 3/0 3/16 heads

I catch almost every one that bites. I use spot remover jig heads.

+1 for the Spot remover heads have hooked up with just about all of my bites on it this year including a 9.63 that blew 4 times trying everything she could to spit it out and I still had to use pliers to extract the hook from her

If using the Magnum Shakey head and big worms treat it just like a big tx rig as far as rod, line etc. I use a 7'3-7'6 heavy and 20lb fluorocarbon

Where do you get the spot remover jig heads? I did a search on tackle warehouse and land big fish and it came up not found. If you don't mind me asking what kind of bait do you use on a shakey head rig? I haven't fished it yet, but would like to give it a try.

Thanks, Ed

Walmart or Academy for the jig heads. I use a straight worm like a trick worm.

What Jaret Latta said. I use 2 versions, the BIG and the small. 3/16 or 1/4 weight and a 1/0 hook AND a 1/2 oz weight and a 3-5/0 hook. Fish them both on 17# test, sometimes 12 on the smaller rig and 15 on the bigger rig. Depends on what I have with me. Hook up almost all of the fish they bite, unless I do not set the hook and then it is zero caught. So, at least do a minor or sweep hook set, would be my advice. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Ledge hoppers at bass pro, mostly 3/8 oz, but sometimes 1/2 oz or 1/4 oz. bait mostly straight tail worms or senkos. The offset hook makes almost zero misses.

I'm a fan of the Owner shaky head jigs. You'll like the centering pin on the screw bait holder - it helps the bait screw straight onto the holder which can reduce tearing off. I fish 1/8 oz. mostly, which has a 4/0 hook where most other 1/8 sizes have a 3/0. I rarely miss a hook-up. Also works well on smaller size craws.

The hook up ratio is good, but I would suggest not boat flipping fish. I have noticed they don't stay hooked up when lifting them. I don't know the physics behind it, but they pop off at the boat more then a Trig will.
