Zoom Finesse Worm

$4.99 – $5.49

Reported by
Kermit Parsons

Lake Of The Ozarks (MO)

Fishing was a little bit better then yesterday but still struggled to find much size. We stuck to channel swing banks and secondary points in the middle portion of creek arms. Best two fishing methods were Shakey heads and drop shots. The Shakey head produced much better the first half of the day and the drop shot was the ticket the second half. The Shakey head I used was a homemade football style similar to the one above in 3/8oz. The Spike-it was key because of the stained water. We boated 40 fish all day with a 11-12lb limit. If you just wanna catch fish this was fun but I didn't come across and big ones.

Reported by
Tin Horse Monty

Kinkaid Lake (IL)

Tin Horse Monty reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Shakey Heads technique and Zoom Finesse Worm on Kinkaid Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Bass are holding on the outside grass line in the 12 foot zone. Fish a shakey head through sparse grass to get bites. Points and main lake banks with a rock and grass mixture are best. A walking top water bait will work in the morning. "

Bear River (MI)

UpNorthMIFishing reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Shakey Heads technique and Zoom Finesse Worm on Bear River. Additional comments from this report: "Fishing a finesse worm around the boulders with a Shakey head was how I caught this one. This was a few years ago too. I highly recommend a Shakey head for smallmouth, it’s super underrated in my opinion! "
