Shakeyhead 101

When the conditions get tough and your well-laid plans and predicted patterns go out the window, good old shakeyhead will be there for you. The shakeyhead worm is possibly one of the most effective techniques available to bass fishermen. It is a staple for both boaters and co-anglers alike on every bass fishing tournament series across the globe.

Late December Fishing in Kentucky

December was a tricky month in the Bluegrass State. Big swings in temperature, snow, rain, and wind made kayak fishing tough. Winter is a favorite time for me to fish, for a couple of reasons. It is somewhat of a down time with me for school, and (best of all) there aren't many people on the water.

Review: Skeet Reese Rod

This summer I wanted to buy a better rod for fishing shaky head worms. Being a fisherman on a budget, I wanted to keep it under $100. After weeks of looking at rods and reading reviews online, I decided to buy the Wright & McGill Skeet Reese Tessera S-Curve shaky head/senko rod. The rod is 6’11” with a moderate fast taper, which gives great action for fishing that shaky head. These rods sell at most retailers for $89.

A much needed outing

Therapeutic. That's what today's kayak fishing trip was. I didn't tear them up. I only caught five fish. I had a run in with a pair of inconsiderate jerks who decided to fish on top of me. I felt I needed to stay within sight of the launch. I only had an hour and a half to fish. No matter. I needed to get out today after a little bout with walking pneumonia.

Loosing Count While Kayak Fishing

The Gamakatsu Shaky head and Zoom Magnum Trick Worm did it again for me. The wind was absolutely brutal. Sustained 30 and gusting to 40 tough conditions for any kayak fisherman. I had to get creative to finding a spot that offered some protection. We've had a ton of rain this past week in my part of Oklahoma, so the river I normally fish was up and had a lot of current. It's been very low all year with our drought conditions, so I was glad to see it up and running. Seems like it needed a good "flushing out."
