Flick Shake 5.8 in.
“Flick Shakin” is a hot technique from Japan -- hotter than drop shotting, in fact -- that has already sent ripples
through the professional bass circuits in America. Reported originators of the technique were Takuma Hata, Jackall vice president Ty Ono and Jackall founder Seiji Kato.
The technique employs a specially designed tungsten jighead -- the most noteworthy marketed by Jackall and Zappu in Japan -- and a plastic worm. Although many worms can be used with the technique, none yet match the performance of the original Jackall Flick Shake worm.
Jackall's wacky jig head and Flick Shake worm
work together as a system. The Flick Shake worm has a built in curved
design, which creates a squirming action that the fish cannot resist.
The Flick Shake worm is also injected with salt and scent for even greater attractiveness.
The jig head’s eye is designed at a ninety-degree angle for better hook
setting and fewer snags. The compact tungsten jig head and short hook shank enhance action.
Special alert to ultra-finesse and micro-jig fishermen: Check out the Jackall Micro Flick (2.5 inch) and ultra-finesse (2.8- and 3.8-inch) members of the Jackall Flick Shake family in the Lee's Global Tackle soft baits selection.

On the shores of Lake
Biwa, home of the recently
confirmed 22-pound, five-ounce world record bass of Manabu Kurita, sits the
headquarters of Jackall Bros. The company was founded by Seiji Kato designer of
the Sammy and Pointer for Lucky Craft before he set out on his own
Seiji brought the Flick Shake technique along with his Flick
Shake worm and jighead to the United States
to revolutionize wacky worm fishing here. Success with the Flick Shake prompted
anglers to test the effectiveness of the Jackall hardbaits. Well, if you are a fan of Japanese tackle,
you know much of the rest of the Jackall story.
