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.

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.

What's the best way to fish a senko?

I have been trying to learn how to fish with this bait and I typically go weightless with a 3/0 hook on a 5" senko. I typically let it sink and then pick it up a couple feet off the bottom and do it all over again. Any suggestions??

You are right on with your technique, but it's worh a try fast twitching them along the edges if the fish are running baitfish. I have good success with the Senkos' (and the far more durable YUM dinger worms) fishing them fast along the fall off of the shoreline when bass are cutting baitfish--let em sink for a few seconds, and then a semi-quick retrieve with some fast twitches along the fall off.

changing colors can make a difference, depending on the angle you twitch your rod, if you twitch your rod downwards the senko will lift about 2inches off the bottom, to the side it will go up a bit more, and if you twitch it directley up it will take about 3-4 seconds to get back to the bottom, you can never go wrong with fishing the bottom

let it sit right on the bottom and twitch the tip after 60 seconds a couple of times before you retrieve it. BE patient. Many bass will look at it for a while before they take it. You can tell how they are feeding that day as to how quick they take it. some time you might want to leave it for a couple of minutes.

answer 7
There are a couple ways to retrieve a soft stickbait such as this. The most common retrieve is one that involves you casting the lure out, letting it sink, and then raising your rod tip again. Keep it on a CONTROLLED slack line. Another way of retrieving this bait is to reel SLOWLY and twitch it. You can also wacky rig it (google it). With this rig, cast into small pockets of weeds and twitch it as you raise your rod tip. Let it fall and repeat. This looks like a dying/injured baitfish. With these retrieves, the bite will usually come on the fall so be ready to set the hook! You can also invent your own ways of retrieving the bait. Fishing it on a 1/0 or 2/0 will allow it to fall at a slower pace, thus attracting more fish. Good luck!

use 2/0 octopus hook. weightless and wacky rig. twitch your rod while there is slack. YES, while there is slack. this makes worm twitch without moving the worm. feel bite or see the line move, reel the slack and set your hook medium/medium hard strength since the hook is exposed.

They way you're fishing them is fine, I catch a lot of fish that way. Be sure to move the senko with the rod, not the reel. You can twitch it in place before moving the bait too. If the fish aren't up shallow you can try adding a weight and casting deeper.

You can easily fish these in cover. It is in the heavy cover that I get the most strikes. Simply rig texas style with an offset hook (2/0 or 3/0 is good for a 5" senko) and instead of leaving the hook out, bury it slightly into the worm. This will make it so that it will not snag on weeds or wood. If you do not know how to texas rig a softbait, look it up on Google.

answer 10
Through light to medium weed cover, like early summer hydrilla growth, I had pretty good luck with it. I just pushed the hook tip real slightly back into the senko after rigging to make it weedless. But because of the weight of it, I found heavy weed growth to be a challenge. You basically end up dragging weeds, and even a dumb fish knows bait doesn't drag weeds. However, if its simply heavy bottom cover weed growth, you dont necessarily need to fish them on the bottom, I have had great luck just letting rise and fall mid-water.

Go with Strike King! Their crankbaits are the best on the market. Way better than Rapala and Bomber. The paint has a lot better abrasion resistance than Rapala or Bomber too. I have used the Strike King Pro Model Series 4 and Series 3 with great success in catching smallies during the prespawn and summer time periods. I just ordered the new KVD ratting shallow running crankbait and I am sure it will work. KVD won three bassmaster classics with these baits.

crankbaits can be great if fished right but they are some out there that will make you break the bank also.

My fav is DT6 and 10s colors such as Hot Mustard and Bleeding Olive Shiner. Check them out I think they work good also cast very far.

You really need a variety based on where you're fishing, water depth and season of the year. This summer, at my lake (Cedar Creek), largemouth are biting well the first 2-3 hours of the day (6-9 AM) on top water lures. One of the best is Stike Kings Wake Shad. They also make a shallow diving bait (King Shad). I like the gizzard colors best. They're not inexpenive and be careful not to hit them hard on a boathouse, etc, they can break. I would also invest in a variety of other topwater crankbaits. Chuggers, walk the dog styles, torpedos (propellers), etc. Walk the dog baits are good for covering large areas of water. Propeller types will throw the most water and draw the most attention. You'll also want diving baits. Shallow (2-5 feet) mid (5-10 feet) and deep (10-16 feet). Flat sided crankbaits can have an advantage in that they are more reflective and produce a tighter wiggle. Rounded baits work well also. Buy baits that are similar to what the bass in your lake are used to feeding on (typically shad and bluegill). I hope this helps you.

The three colors i live by are blue, purple and green...in that order. In the water your talkin about, green will probably work the best although blue and purple are going to get the job done as well.

The best colors are matching the characterestics of your water environment. If you have really clear water, you want a color that mimics your lake/streambed environment. so if the rocks and bottom are greenish, go green, if they are blacker/bluer, go that color range. Picking a color to mimic baitfish is always a good option too, if you have little baitfish that are silver, try a color similar to them, and fish it just on the edge of where these baitfish will be, keep it towards the edges of the deeper water just away from the typical places you see such baitfish.

i would suggest using overall lighter colors or colors that resemble forage of the bass, such as the color with a light green on top and white on the bottom immitates an emerald shiner.

If the water is clear, try to go with natural subtle colors that somewhat match the forage fish. If there are minnows/shad, consider a laminate with green or smoke on top and white on the bottom. The natural (tan) and green colors work well in clear water as well!

Try to fish it weightless (T-rig or wacky) to exploit the full potential of the quivering/shaking Senko fall!

I personally like to fish this bait weightless - Texas rigged.

My favorite set-up for this bait is a 7'5" carbonlite rod with a good quality baitcaster. Monofilament (15#) and a 3/0 or 4/0 Gammagatsu or Owner EWG hook. If you get your reel set up properly - you should be able to cast a mile as well as pitch into good spots!

Good Luck!

I usually use a medium action baitcaster, but I have also used it extensively with an ultralight spinner. Basically if you can get the bait to land in the spot you were aiming for, you are good to go.

You can use any size rod, I use a 6' 6" m rod and sometimes I use my 4'6" ultralight rod, whatever you have works.

Any rod can be used butI recomend the 7 foot black all star rods that are medium or fast action. I like their rods because they are super sensitive and strong.
