As far as size goes, Kriet doesn't look heavier than 1/8-ounce
"I throw a 1/8-ounce head 75 percent of the time and a
1/16-ounce head 25 percent of the time," Kriet said. "There are times when that
is really the deal — when they are hitting it on the fall. Around docks, when
they are getting a lot of pressure, you can skip that up around docks and that
slow fall is deadly.
Jeff Kriet - Squirrel Tail Worm
Named for the nickname given to Kriet by Kevin VanDam
Big Bite is very excited to announce the release of
the new Jeff Kriet Signature Series Squirrel Tail Worm.
Featuring a floating tail that makes it perfect for
Shaky head fishing.
"I wanted a worm that had a tail that stands up. The tail is made to
float, just the end of the worm. When I shake it and pull it, whenever I hit a
rock, twig or trash, that is when I'll throw slack in my line and try to shake
it without moving it. The floating tail has a subtle, tantalizing quiver that
fish can't resist. They will bite this bait when they won't bite anything else.
I think this will be the best shaky head ever made."
