Default Fishing a Senko

My experience with rubber worms is working them texas rigged. Trying to expand my bass fishing arsenal, I bought a pack of these senkos, but not sure how to really work them to take advantage of them. Any tips on using these?

Wacky rigging is my favorite way to go. Senkos have a subtle action all their own, and you want to fish them weightless in such a way to let them do their thing. They wiggle back and forth as they free-fall and you want to take full advantage of that. *

Wacky rigging is real simple, you just tie on a hook, I prefer an Owner Mosquito hook, size 1. Then put the hook through the middle of the worm and you're rigged. They have enough weight to them so you can cast them, but not real far. I usually fish them from a boat and slip up quietly within 20-30' of where I want to fish them. It's not easy to do in the wind though, because it's a slow presentation.* **

Then you just toss it where you think the bass are (yeah that's the trick) and let it fall to the bottom. If you haven't gotten bit yet, slowly lift your rod tip a few feet, and let it fall again. I like light line to fish them properly. I use 6 lb. P-line flouroclear but any small diameter flexible line will do, so you don't inhibit the action of the worm. Try it, you'll like it...*

I have caught many bass simply by riggin it with a jighead and fishing it like a tube or a grub.

I like to bite 'em in half and Texas rig 'em weightless. Fish just like soft plastics. Mess around with different presentations/retrievals. 90% of strikes come on the free-fall.

Get 'em.

Basically in my experience with a Senko you just have to find any way to get it to stay on your hook and you will do well.

I am a big fan of fishing them weightless- either texas rig or whacky style. I did not believe that whacky would work but if you put that thing on and watch the ends of the senko flutter as it sinks you will see why it is such an awesome presentation.

Here is an article by GY about fishing the senko. I thought this was helpful:

I rig them texas style and fish them weightless.

Cast the lure out and let it sink till it's on the bottom or close to the bottom. Then lift it up or give it a jerk...it will dart like a jerkbait. Let it sink again and repeat the process.

Bass can not resist them.

the pure white ones are hard to find in the 5" but if you find them, try them for wipers, and hang on.
