Default Does anyone like fatties?

Fatties are basically knock off Senko's made by Lockett Lures...



http://www.lockettluresoutlet.com/fattiessenkos.html






I found them on FB a while back..... I finally decided to make an order to see how they work...

I picked up:
25 Assorted pack of 4"ers($5.99)
25 Assorted pack of 3"ers($4.99)


They have not arrived, but once they do i will make an initial review.. then I will get out and use them and then review again.

Senkos are definitely the softest you're going to find, but I don't know how much that matters. I've used a few different brands, all produce about the same to me. Seems like the Yum Dingers work well, and last a bit longer than Senkos.

I actually dislike Senko fishing. So damn slow, and if you're a hack like me, you may not feel the take until they've swallowed it deep....

The magic with the real Senkos is their density, (which translates to sink rate). Seems like that makes a difference some days.

Also they seem to have a certain wiggle to them when falling that i think is key.(Esp. when wacky rigged.)
