Reins Bubbling Shaker

Postby jerkbait22 » Mon Mar 27, 2017 9:01 am

Picked up the following:
4" Kito Kito Shad
5" Purple Weenie
7" Green Pumpkin Silver Flake

Plan on using the 4" for drop shot, 5" for drop shot and shakey head, and the 7" for neko rig. Did a search and saw a few comments on these for drop shot. Anyone use them for other techniques?

The place I ordered from didn't have Mueller's Madness but that color looks nice. I also liked the green pumpkin all stars but I'll see how I do with these first before ordering more.

I need some new plastics like I need a hole in the head, but I really want to pick some of these up. Perhaps the 4" and 5" for shakey head, and then the 5" again and the 7" for Texas rigs.

They have become my favorite drop shot plastic last season. I use the 4" nose hooked and the 5" texas. I bought some 7" but have not try them for neko rig yet since i still have plenty of the reins swamp mover for that. Purple weenie is killer in the midwest and i can attest.

Pen what size hook are you using on the 5" for Texas rig drop shot? 1/0 offset?

Yes 1/0 of the Owner drop shot offset hook or the Roboworm rebarb light wires. Just reel in and sweep just like a single hook, do not jerk it.

Purple weenie and Mueller's madness in the 4" were easily our best dropshot baits last year.
We also used the 7" green pumpkin jig worm style along deep weedlines for largemouth
and did alot of damage.

I discovered the Bubbling Shaker last year and use them a lot. I prefer the 3.5-4" ones, and usually fish them on a weightless t-rig. They have an amazing action when fished like a fluke and have a good wiggle on the fall. I find that they, while more durable then I assumed they would be, are soft enough to give me a much better hook-up ratio then say Zoom Supers or the 4" Caffeine Shads when I fish them on ML or even L rods.
