For Fishing Wobblehead Lures
Catching fish on the Wobblehead is as easy as it is productive. Cast the lure adjacent
to cover (weedbeds, trees, docks, etc.). A slow, steady retrieve that makes the worm "wobble" from side to side, like a swimming
snake, is the right action.
The lure, designed to catch suspended bass in shallow water, can be fished from the surface
down to approximately four feet deep. It is not a lure to be used on the bottom, however, to prevent hangups in heavy cover,
the lure can be made weedless. (see below)
Strikes on the lure vary from a vicious "spinnerbait-like" strike to a gentle
tap-tap, similar to fishing a Texas rigged worm. If you feel the tap-tap strike, drop the rod tip, allowing the fish to inhale
the lure, the set the hook. If short strikes occur, you may resort to a trailer hook. (see Cheat-R-Hooks below)
selection depends on water clarity or color, brightness of the day and whim of the fisherman. The general rule is; light colors
for bright days and clear water and darker colors for cloudy days and stained water.
The all time favorite color combinations
are the red Wobblehead with a Natural (live) color straight tailed worm and the black Wobblehead with a Catalpa worm. However,
other combinations will prove more effective at times.
When fishing gets tough (after cold fronts or other times when
they aren't biting) try the Wobblehead Jr. Only 1/8 ounce rigged, this lure is fished on ultra-light gear and will catch anything
While the Wobblehead Lure can be used at any time, it will be at it's most productive when the weather
is hot and bass are suspended near shallow water grass beds.
