catchn MHO,
Gamakatsu = less hang ups and more misses

Owner = more hang ups but waayyyy better hook up ratio

And this is coming from 3 or 4 months a year for the past... Well forever throwing nothing but senkos all spring and early summer.

And not for nothin but I can skip a frog a good 10ft + with a BC. A senko on a spin rod Gees I don't know 20ft + Xtra fast tip and a full spool is key

whompuscat658 I don't know any good weed less recommendations but I will say the wacky worm is by far my favorite plastic for bass. Makes for a good worm pattern on the fly, too.

This...

One other thing I might mention... fishing them on a good worm hook is more weedless and SO much more fun due to the hookset, IMO... I do love the wacky though and tend to catch a lot of fish with em... Def love the Gami wwg.

I go back home to North Carolina a couple of times a year and do alot of pitching docks at Smith Mountain Res. with Senko's. Those Owner Misquito hooks that Simbait mentioned have never failed me!

I basically T-rig the octopus hook in the middle of the worm. It chews the worm up a little but is nice and weedless and there's np weedguard to affect the hookset.

Very true, WE, very true. Sometimes I go with a Texas rig, or at least a Texas-rigged tube or Senko, but I like having options to mix it up - I figure anyone can skip a Texas-rigged lure under a bush but the bass might not have seen a wacky-rigged worm, or, if I can get some more practice, a big swimbait!

Swimbait (the CF member, not the lure), I think you're also right - a wacky rigged worm has a more alluring fall than a Texas-rigged one, at least in my modest experience.

I'll post up some pictures of the modified Owners (I think they are Mosquitos) once I test them out.

Mr. Eagle-

i know you are a very astute angler, a gentleman, and a stand up fella.

but with regards, i think a Texas rig is a poor follow up presentation, as it is NO WHERE as good a drop bait as a wacky Senko. i have moderate experience with both... the T rig is better as a method of covering water...me thinks!

Dr., why dont you tie up some hooks, i am very interested in your results!

(try Owner Mosquito hooks)

and yes, Chad is a stud angler. but then, so are you!

Weeds and brush are what the Texas rig was designed for. The wacky rig is not the only setup that catches fish.
