Whachoo talkin bout Willis?
Ya, I think you may be right... I liked the idea, but then you divulged the crossed o ring... I will borrow!Personally, I think they look too intrusive. Big & shiny, usually if I have to throw a senko the conditions are such that I want the bait to look and act as natural as possible.
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!
So he fished it on 17 in mead and havi, eh? seems redic unless he wanted it to sink at a different rate.Ummmm negative, Gary lives at Powell, or at least did when he invented senkos (for that lake) which is very clear back in the coves. It was invented with the idea of fishing it wacky... He was doing the "magic pencil" thing, where you make your pen or pencil wabble when he came up w/ the idea.... Anyway, Mead, havi, both Gin clear (as clear or clearer then ANY lake here even alpine where no veg grows) where him and his son fish senkos on heavy line almost exclusively.
