Shaky head jigs do a great job of keeping the bait up off the bottom. Some baits also look great when just twitched with a subtle and constant twitch (shaky technique). You can keep the bait in the strike zone longer with the shaky technique. These jigheads also look great when hopped along the bottom, flipped around cover or with baits that look good with a swimming retrieve. Shaky head jigs are one of the best, if not the best rigs for a variety of soft plastic baits.
