You can use your "Rod" or you can use your "Reel".
Most anglers use their rod by lifting the rod followed by reeling down the slack
to regain contact with their lure. Instead, you might want to stay in constant contact with your lure.
To do this, use a "Crank-and-Glide" retrieve.
Crank the reel 1 to 4 turns, depending on the water depth and lure distance from boat.
Then allow the worm to glide back to the bottom on a "tight-line glide".
Every time the lure makes bottom contact, simply repeat the crank-and-glide.
In this fashion the rod 'never' moves, but remains stationary throughout the retrieve.
Bottom contact is usually signaled in one of two ways
>> The tight line will suddenly droop and form a line-belly
>> The little V-wake made by the line will stop advancing toward the angler.

2 very important things when fishing a worm for me are, 1. After you give the worm a couple of hops and let it sink back to the bottom, let it sit for a few seconds. I always wait atleast 5 seconds before working it again. Almost all of my strikes come after i let it sit still for a couple of seconds. 2. WATCH YOUR LINE ALWAYS. Today 3 different fish hit and i did not feel a thing but i saw my line moving away from me and set the hook. Sometimes you will not feel the bite at all.

Cant believe i forgot to add this link! The Senko is a fish catching machine!!! The most effective way to fish a senko is weightless either t rigged or wacky rigged. It has a unique fall when fished weightless that is irresistable to bass. I cast it out and let it sink to the bottom, wait a few seconds and then slowly lift your rod up from 6 o clock to 12 o clock and then let it fall back down on a semi slack line. It basically fishes itself! Deadstick it for a while cause thats when most of your strikes will come.

start ur retrive with ur rod tip at about a 30 degree angle , raise ur rod to give action to worm, everything from 6" twitches to 6' sweeps can work so vary ur retrieve til u figure out what they want. i don pick up slack until my rod is vertical
u nvr want enough slack so tht u cant feel some pressure, keep a finger on the line to feel for a strike.they usually hit it wen its stopped wen tht happens point rod to where line hits the water crank down slack and set the hook.

Besides hopping it, dragging it, or swimming it, don't forget to try deadsticking it. Throw it out, let it sink to bottom, and then leave it in one place for as long as you can stand it. Count to 15, 30, maybe 60 seconds before moving your bait.
Watch where the line enters the water for the telltale tick that indicates a bite.
