You can buy whatever size rubber o rings at the hardware store for like 1$ for 25. They absolutely help give more action and enable multiple fish catches/ bait. in AZ I tested in my pool. As for lighter line,... Gary Yamamoto (inventor of senko's) fishes them on 17lb flouro,... Just sayin

I do the same except I use the clear ones. I double the ring to create an X and run the hook through there so it stays perpendicular to the worm.

I hear what you guys are saying on the light line. I have always been a light line fisherman when it comes to finesse techniques. And many people don't agree with me on it. I know you can get away with heavier line most times but, I can attest to getting more bites on the lighter line in clear(er) water when some one is with me fishing heavy line. All I am saying is that if I were at Lonetree, there is no way I am throwing 6 pound, but if I am at Horsetooth or Carter I will go down to 4 pound flouro if I am using pro or slim senkos. A 6" inch senko will be on atleast 8 pound in clear water.

X2! Grab just a few of the wraps and get a little extra snap from the rubber band.

Definitely, I seen ATK work a senko for hours. Mofo loves him some senkos. It's all about patience.

Jon, you sure teach me a lot... your posts are always subtly huge. Gracias....

The double hooks with the connector look great, but I would likely only use them if tourney fishing...hi dolla lil' mofos.

Gary Yammamoto fishes 17lb in way different type of water than we fish out here... In CO we are usually finess fishing in super clear water where stealth is far more important... I use different wt line for different conditions and def different for texas rigged... When using a big worm hook, you gotta hit those fish hard, so you gotta have some strong line, and you are usually fishing mad cover. When wacky rigging, you don't set the hook nearly as hard and it is usually not in heavy cover (wacky kinda defeats the weedless aspect of the bait).

ATK is the Senko KING and should chime in with some tips. All hail the king of senko!

Tried wacky today. Caught one smallish large mouth and then nothing. Tried a couple different worms too. At least it worked so I am happy. Glad to have a new tool in the arsenal!
