Worm Fishing Tips for Fall and Winter

Forget finesse, this video is about big worms and shaky heads to power through the cooler months. If you aren’t ready to dropshot, this video is for you! Finesse is great but if your fish are willing to feed, feeding them, a bigger meal can upsize your catch. Turn to the shaky head this Winter when everyone else has given up and you might be surprised by what happens next.

Everyone knows the power of the shaky head for Summer bass. Somehow anglers overlook the effectiveness the rest of the year. As the water cools consider picking up a shaky head with a lighter wire hook, tying it on a lighter rod, and trying to catch a big bass when nothing else will bite.

Below is a breakdown of the worms, hooks, and tackle we have the most confidence in with this technique. Remember, keep it simple. You’re not looking for a ton of bites as the water cools, you’re looking for the right bites. Stick to confidence colors for the best results.

Randy Garcia says:

Who are the assholes who gave the thumbs down.

Ray C says:

Here’s what I always found interesting with winter fishing. Guys put away plastics, yet ice fishermen use plastics. Guys throw smaller baits, but it’s a great time to throw Swimbaits for the trout eaters.

Bryan Neace says:

Awesome for sure.

68Angler says:

Can Any one help me my lake has turned to chocolate milk from a lot of rain and the water temp dropped to 65 I just need some information on how and where to catch bass

daltybell says:

I’ll have to try this from the bank. I have yet to catch a bass with a worm.

David Gerber says:

what do you throw in November in PA on stained river water?

David Hall says:

You guys may have one and I haven’t seen it, but I would love a video covering out of production Bait’s you use, and alternatives that are still in production. (I.e. the pre rap wart and the rock crawler and if there is a practical difference) I love forgotten baits and would love to see which ones you guys still break out when the time is right!

Jeff Markel says:

Last week was the still fall transition and this today it’s seems like it going to the winter transition here in California Delta. The water temperature is at 40-50 degrees with this cold front.

Kevin VanDam says:

Yeah take the lake back from those stupid jetskiers and pleasure boaters

Blue Collar Fishing says:

Just throw a real nightcrawler in there from your local Walmart and watch the magic happen y’all!! Forget all this expensive Mumbo Jumbo

David Rauschenbach says:
