Omnia Community Member
South Pool (IL)
Omnia Community Member reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Shakey Heads technique and Zoom Trick Worm on South Pool. Additional comments from this report: "Being patient was the key. Would let the worm sit on the bottom for a while before retrieving it very slowly. "
Lemont Heritage Quarrys (IL)
Bass moving into shallower water and staging on and around rock piles. Shakey heads fished very slow through rock piles got the best bite.
Yamamoto 5" Senko Worm
Table Rock Lake (AR, MO)
Evan Bull reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Shakey Heads technique and Yamamoto 5" Senko Worm on Table Rock Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Cloudy with some rain, good top water bite. And caught a couple on a black and blue spinnerbait. Then drug a green pumpkin shakey head around boulders and chunk rock and caught a few good keepers. I tried a bunch of different baits and caught fish on all of them."
Willisburg Lake (KY)
TBondfishing reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Shakey Heads technique and Yamamoto 5" Senko Worm on Willisburg Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Target new grass growth on the main lake. Bass were still in very skinny water. Won the tournament. "
Green River Lake (KY)
LukeF68 reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Shakey Heads technique and Yamamoto 5" Senko Worm on Green River Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Senko in brush 15 ft deep"
Zoom Finesse Worm
$4.49 – $5.49
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.
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! "

Nick Saul reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Shakey Heads technique and Zoom Trick Worm on George Wyth Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Found a nice rocky spot off of a point and almost every time I drug a shakey head over it I got bit. Tried a dt10 and a 3/8 oz jig through the same spot and nothing. They wanted the shakey head."
