Default Double digit largemouth

Finally caught that monster bass I always wanted! I was messing around with a shaky head and caught her. I was with a friend who was using the technique and explaining it and he caught a good little 3lb football shaped bass. So I tried my Own shaky head with a black trick worm and caught a 2.5lber. After the bite died, we left but I came back to fish the last few hours of sunlight and hooked into this beast! She was bigger than the 8lber I caught a week ago and was over 20 inches so my guess is 9-10lbs! She was caught on a megastrike shake2 jig head and a junebug trick worm with the tail dyed chartreuse.

Default Shakey head

Here's my first shaky head fish and the lure that caught my new pb. Both fish were released alive and healthy.

Thanks! It's definitely going to stay rigged up for awhile. This'll be my ace in the hole when the bite gets tough

Awesome fish! That shakey head will fool them, especially if they don't see it a lot.

That's a good one for sure. SH is a very versatile method for bass fishing.

Thanks all. Shaky head is something I had for a long time but never really gave it a chance. It's definitely staying rigged up! The trick worm is easily in my top 5 all time baits also. I only just started using one last year because of another buddy and it's caught me a ton of bass already. There's a million ways to fish one for literally any situation and I guess I just added another to my bag of tricks... no pun intended. I should add that it was an extremely lucky catch also, because I was using a medium light spinning rod and 8lb test line

Shaky head with a zoom ultra vibe speed craw is my number one go to bait. The only bait I can consistently catch bass on year round. Catches numbers and size. Nice fish!
