Thanks everybody. I went to the sportsmans warehouse today and bought some. The guy working there seemed to be very knowledgable about how to rig them. He gave me about a foot of surgical tube to attatch them to the hook. How do you guys rig em?
I fish mine texas rigged weightless as well but when it gets a bit tore up I take it off of the texas then I wacky rig it. All a wacky rig is you hook the worm through the middle letting it hang off both sides of the hook.
I don't think color matters too much.
Of course, if your lakes have shad (no west slope lake does so this doesn't go into my accounting), a color matching shad would be best.
I think a color that is subtle, yet visible in the given conditions is best. If the water is slightly stained I like the red/black. The dark green with sparkles is good also in more clear water.
ive found that where senko's work using the zoom catapilar works even better the bait im using is about 4 inches long and has red sparkles . not to mention the zoom stuff is about 2 dollars cheaper . and usually i wacky rig ....cast out into the water and watch the sides of the bait slowly flutter it makes me want to eat it ..
the funny thing is last year i was so certain that i was gonna catch more fish then my buddy who was using an off name brand of senko . nope i was totally wrong he doubled me in fish and i doubled him in the price of what i was using . i think sometimes fisherman get so caught up in having the best they forget it isnt always the most expensive
My buddy uses the zoom products which are very affordable and he always catches bass and walleye on them. All the plastics are made out of the same crap you'd think they work the same. I guess it is the scent and the action though that matters on top of the color.
