You can use any size shaky head you want, just make sure you use a thin wire hook because you are going to be fishing with light line it's just easier to get it in a fish's mouth. A ﾼ-ounce is my favorite, but if you go too light the bait quits shaking.

The Finesse Worm is a small version of the popular Zoom Trick Worm and can be rigged in a variety of ways, including wacky style on a small hook, on a darter head, splitshot or on a shakey or finesse jig head.
The Neko Rig is a relatively new phenomenon in the bass community. Basically, it is a weighted version of a wacky rig with a weight inserted into just one end of the soft plastic, giving the bait a unique action as it falls and allows it to stand straight up once it hits the bottom.
The Ned rig is just a small chunk of a soft plastic stick bait threaded onto a light 1/16 to 1/4 ounce jighead. While any stick bait will work effectively, there are few better ned rig baits than the 10,000 Fish Sukoshi Bug. That's it.
Bites on a jig vary from a sharp "thump" to a slight "tick" that you should feel in your rod handle. Sometimes your line will just start moving out to the side or will come right at you(this usually indicates a quality fish).
First thing you need to do, is attach your bait to the jig head by screwing the bait on. Some guys like to glue them down, but I think that is a little too much work. Next, you bury the hook into the bait making it weedless. Check out the shaky head illustration to see what it should look like when it is all rigged up.
Here's how to rig and fish it: In 5 – 10 feet of water, a ½ ounce wobble head is ideal, but move up to ¾ ounce in 15 – 20 feet of water, and 1 ounce deeper than that. The goal is to have enough weight to keep it on the bottom throughout the retrieve. At the business end, rig a VileCraw weedless.
During the Fall time when bass fish are often in the shallow water, the Texas Rig is going to work better than the Carolina Rig. ... A Carolina Rig can have a weight that is up to 2 ounces, making it great for deep water fishing. If you are dealing with heavy cover, the Texas Rig is a great option.
In dark water, dark worms often produce the best: purple, black, brown, etc. Two-toned worms are better when the less dominant color is a highly attracting one, such as bright yellow or red, and the dominant color is a more conservative one, such as black or blue. Metalflake colors are often the key to fishing success.
Watermelon Red- use this one when fishing in clean or lightly stained water and around vegetation. Green Pumpkin- best and most versatile color. This one can get you bites in just about any condition. Black and Blue- use this one in muddier water or low light conditions like night fishing and in cloud cover.
by Sean Thomas. Finesse fishing is a method of angling that typically uses light tackle and small-sized lures that goes against the gung-ho ethos of much of bass fishing. More graceful in action, these lures are designed to coax finicky fish into biting.
For sizes, 1/0 to 3/0 seems to work fine for me, the fatter the worm the bigger the hook, but I keep those hooks in sizes down to a 6, because they can work great with other plastics for weightless applications. I like the same hooks for weightless rigging flukes & nose hooking them.
