Senkos...

Recommended Posts

I retired last year and started up bass fishing after many years not. I kept hearing on this forum and others about senko or finesse worms. Last month I finally gave them a try, and boy do they work. I don't understand what the bass see in them. This morning on the Potomac I used 6" finesse worms from Gander Mountain, blue with silver flecks, weightless. Caught four nice 2-pound bass in a couple of hours. The same worms worked in Minnesota on a trip last month, and in a local northern Virginia lake. I'm convinced!

It doesn't get much better than senkos and finesse worms. Clutch pretty much sums up my feelings about it.

I am getting to where I throw 7" Yamamoto Senkos more than any other size. They are big baits but I don't think I get any less fish on them.

 

Coming in 2nd is the 5" size. I never go smaller than 5" and for some reason I almost never throw a 6" Senko.

 

Definitely a boring looking bait that does AWESOME!

When I first started fishing them I was skeptical, but Iv caught a lit of fish on them. I use the Bass Pro brand in "crawberry" color. 5 3/8".

Aye, sir, they work. Senkos, Bass Pro Stik-O (knock offs), Zoom finesse and Trick worms. All of 'em catch bass.

Agreed on all counts.  I've been using them T-rigged weightless, 5 to 7 inches  

 

Today I used the Senkos drop shot rigged with #2 light wire hooks in the nose (rather than 3/0 offset hooks). Caught my largest 2 bass of the week on them but it really requires a net with the little, light hooks.  I'm not sure why that seemed to work so well.

 

The tough thing now is finding worms that actually float.  Everyone is advertising 'salt', 'super salt', 'salt and coffee'  and whatever they can other than 'senko'.  Testing them shows that they all sink.  No one seems to advertise floating worms.  What's up with that?
