answer 1
There isn’t really a “Best” color to use when fishing. One color may work better one time but not as well the next time you fish. So, when selecting a lure color take a look at your surrounds (landscape and wildlife) to determine the color of lure to use. If the water is dark and murky (or stained) use bright and/or fluorescent colors that can draw the fish’s attention to the lure. If the water is clear, look around if the area and use colors which blend with the surrounds. If the area is rocky use a brown, tan, or a similar color. If there is grass and weeds then use more of the green colors. Each location will be different so try a good range of colors. Thank you for your question.

All colors work but some are better suited for different amounts of sunlight. However, from our experience, the colors closest to red, brown and yellow seem to stand out.

This really depends on the lake. Clearlake, CA does excellent with red/blk. Hyatt Lake, OR seems to handle the pumpkin/purple nicely. And I've used both on a couple of other lakes.

Experiment a bit with the colors that look like a primary food source on your lakes.

Any color will work and long as it is GREEN! Green as in Watermelon, Pumkin or Baby bass. You can't go wrong with GREEN. It is good year around, especially in the spring to early summer. When the weather is HOT and the surface temp it above 80 degree's I use the Junebug color, they will rip it, good luck.

Color and style make a big difference so always have a good assortment of different colors, styles, and lengths as well as a good supply of different worm weights. An assortment of small worms, craw worms, lizards, curl tail, finesse, and ribbon-tail worms will cover nearly every situation.

Sizing of lures is also a part of the proper presentation. Here is a recommended chart for length of lures for various game fish.

Crappies, Perch, Bluegills-1-2″
River Trout-1-3″
White Bass-1-3″
Small mouth Bass-2-5″
Large mouth Bass-2-6″
Walleyes-3-6″
Salmon, Lake Trout-3-7″
Muskies, Northern Pike-4-12″

Here in Maryland we like to show the fish a color contrast. 5 inch Senkos in green/white, or green/pink are working right now.
If you want big bass size up your baits. Try 6 inch Senkos and 10 inch worms on 5/0 hooks, Texas rigged.

I prefer the 6 inch Senko, but by all means throw 10 inch worms or bigger. Don't forget to size up your hooks when throwing monster plastics. Nothing is worse than missing a fish. Regarding plastic worms I like to throw up on the shore and slither the worm into the water. Do throw these baits in heavy vegetation.

Are these heavy enough to fish weightless on a baitcaster?

This is my first year with a baitcaster, so I'm no pro, but I think I'm pretty good with it already. Unfortunately fishing worms weightless is best in my area due to how weedy our waters are. Will I be alright using these without a weight? Or should I stick to spinning rods for my worming?

This is the best way to do it. take a 5/16" I.D. O ring and slide it to the center of the worm and put your hook under the ring but do not penetrate the worm. you will find that the worms will last longer than if you use a texas rig.

answer 7
Almost all worms have a piece in the center of it (forget what the name of it's called), this piece is a little larger & smoother than the rest of the body. Insert the hook through this area. Try to not stick it all the way through rather have the hook just pop out a little. The worm will hang to either side of the hook & will float slowly down to the bottom. If you use a search engine like Google, type Wacky Rig. Then hit the images tab. This will bring up tons of images that should help you better understand how to rig each worm because there are slightly different methods.

Wacky style is when you insert the hook throught the middle portion of the worm instead of the head. It creates a lot of vibration on the fall. You can use a variety of hooks, including jig heads.

Plain shank 2/0. Anything smaller increases the chances of bass swallowing the hook. I always use an "o-ring" and there by increase the life of the Senko 10 to 15 times.

I use a Gamakatsu 3/0 EWG worm... You want the hook to go right through the little flat section of the bait. When you use anything much smaller you'll start tearing baits. On the other end of the spectrum too big of a hook will start to take away action from the bait.

With a 5" senko you can use just about any size hook, but I would stay in the 2/0-5/0 range for bass. I usually use a 3/0 extra wide gap worm hook. A 2/0 works well for 4". A 1 works well for 3". Larger hooks will dampen the action of the worm on the fall, so use the smallest you're comfortable with. That being said I've caught 4 lb+ bass on a size 1 hook, so you be the judge. Gamakatsu is a great brand for hooks, I highly recommend them.

My favorite hook is the Gamakatsu EWG with a wide gap. I believe the size I use is 2/0. Set the hook as soon as you feel the hit . They will not hesitate when eating this bait so you do not have to wait . You do'nt want them hooked too deep. They do'nt nibble this worm, they eat it.

answer 1
senko by a long shot because it is more durable and longer lasting also because they catch more fish

From our experience, while both baits have worked for us, the senko worm seems to outperform the yum ringer.

Senkos, because the Gary Yamamoto bait company uses a certain plastic that drives bass crazy.

I would say that the senko works better. I have never seen anything catch more fish.

In my opinion they are both very good. I like the yamamotos because of the wide color selection but they're a little pricey. The yums are cheaper but they have fewer colors. they both preform about the same though.

There both great, however the action for my style of fishing which is smallmouth in the rivers the Senko performs best with a faster fall rate mostly where bites are made by dragging and bumping the bottom made by the water current

The senko is better because it is the original whereas the dinger is an imitation of the senko. The senko has the best rate of fall in my opinion.

senko all the way, altho the yum scent is good the action out preforms, i would still suggest buying the yum spray scent and spraying these with it to catch more fish

They are both good baits. I think the Senko has slightly better action and the Dinger is slightly more durable. There are several videos out on the net which demonstrate this action (quivering and shaking on the weightless fall).

The Senko comes in significantly more colors.

I have not tried the YUM dinger, but I know that the senko catches bass like crazy, but they tear very easily. if you have the money to buy more, get the senko, but buy a pack of both and see which one you like, thats what i would do.

thats a hard question to answer. senkos are more productive and more expensive while dingers are cheaper and last much longer. they are both great baits, but the BPS stick-o is the best stick bait ever made. i would recomend some of those.
