I love senkos. Before yesterday I didn't really think I could get anything on them but I was dead wrong. Here are the decent fish I've caught on them in the last two days:





I need to go out and buy or order another package cause they were just killing them today. Most of the fish were only about 8 to 10" (about 8 or so in all) but the others were good catches to me :) Top one was about 15", 2nd was about 15 1/2" and the last was 14 1/2". One got away as well, felt bigger then the other two today but got wrapped around a log or something and snapped the line. If you catch a big guy and he has a green senko or a red worm hook in him I need it back lol.

How were you rigging the senko's? My favorite way to fish them is wacky style. The one problem I've had with them is that they tear so easily. The best solution I've found is to wrap a dental rubber band (the ones used for braces) around the hook and worm. You can catch quite a few fish before the worm tears this way, at $5.99/bag it's well worth the extra effort.

I might have to do that cause I had about 8 or 9 in the bag starting yesterday and I left today with about 3 or 4 left. They do tear very easy being so soft and the most I used one worm was through about 8 hooksets since every time it tore more of the head away where the hook goes in first. I also found that turning them around and rigging it the same way works. I was just doing texas style with no weight yesterday and today. Just barely twitch it off the bottom every 6 to 8 seconds. Don't hold the line tight though it lets it fall and sit better, but watch for your line to start to slowly drift out, pull up the slack and set the hook. Then hope you have a big one :)

I love strike king 3X when I rig them I put a toothpick threw the worm into the hook eye if you add a dot of superglue the worm wont slide up your line. They can take alot of abuse too.

Nice fish...and I have to agree. These stick-bait worms have ruined me for other lure presentations and I actually have to stop catching fish before I tie anything else on. For an urban basser on small water...these things are a MUST CARRY!

You can work them through the heaviest cover and even the thickest "salad" doesn't slow them down (if you rig the hook point under the skin).

Most of my bigger fish have been caught on these fantastic plastics in 2005. I've fished different brands side-by-side to the senko and haven't noticed any significant difference...color choice and size is the real key in my opinion.

Senkos are one of the best lures for bass, if not the best. The only limitation is they only work in clear water.
I have caught more largemouth bass on senkos this year than any other presentation. Super flukes and bass assassins are just about as good and better in many situations.
Amazing that something that looks like a plastic cigarette and has a very subtle action catches bass like that, but its almost like crack on a hook to them.

At $5.99 a bag for Senkos I lean more to the Tiki Man Wave Worms for $2.99 a bag. I have not had any complaints at all with them. They are coming in more color combinations too.
