Default Finesse worm?

I need some good suggestions for a finesse worm set up. Good brand of worm, length, etc. Do you use a jig head? Do you jig it like a jig n pig? Any help would be good. Never used a finesse worm, but I usually don't fish this early in the year.

Zoom Finesse Worm!!!!! I have caught more fish with that over the years than any other finesse worm. My fav color is watermelon red and I dip the tip of the tail in JJ's Magic Chart Color. I use it on a simple shakeyhead. I like the tip up or football for the head of it. Be ready to loose a bunch of tip up heads though. Tough to get them out of rocks and using a light line for finesse fishing I go through about 10 or so if I fish it all tournament long.

What size of shaky head do you suggest? 1/8 oz, 1/4 oz?

Depends on your depth, conditions, etc. Try to get by with the lightest version you can. If too heavy some times fish will sometimes drop by feling the weight. If I am throwing in under 5 foot of water I usually use a 1/8. If the wind is whipping I may change to a 1/4. At deeper water I use a 1/4 and if its real windy or going for 25+ foot of water Ill stp up to a 3/8. Just try what works best for your style and area of fishing.

finesse worms to work really well. you may want to try a big bite squirrel tail worm too. bluegill will steal a lot of tails from you, though. if you are looking for a bigger presentation, try a zoom trick worm. i throw them on either an 1/8 or 1/4 oz shakey head depending on depth.

Finesse fishing has been working!!!! Zoom finesse 4.5 inch on 1/4 oz has been the trick. Chatter baits working well too. Five bass so far. One too small to weigh, 1.4 lbs, 2.1 lbs, 3.6 lbs, and a 4.1 lb er. All hit very slow. Last one caught only knew it was on because my line started moving a bit. Thanks, guys.

Default Roboworm

For me the most affective Finesse worm I have used over the years has been Roboworm in all sizes.

Zoom finesse worm, nuff said. These are the absolute best. Wacky, weightless, drop shot, shakey head, whatever. No fineese worm better.
