? About Senko

Recommended Posts

I'm a culprit man but after being on this site for a month or so I see that many like using the senko. My question is what color, and size to you good folks recommend? Also I'm assuming just a Texas rig.

Stay away from the black senko with the blue tip. Total waste of money.

What ever you do, don't throw a watermelon red 5" on a Carolina rig. It doesn't work. ;-)

For real tho, its a great lure. They work as well for me on a c rigs the do pitching it weighless. When the bite is tuff, ill go down to a 3"

There's a red flake senko and a amber red flake stick o color that's impossible to get. I asked mister twister if they would made the color but got no answer. No one offers this hot fish catching color. Luckily I'm stocked up on them for a while.

 

After going through so many yamamoto brand senko' s like one per fish I switch to the BPS STICK O cause the last longer and are close in color. Now with Bps Not keeping up with the supply and demand on certain colors I jumped ship again and I'm trying the mister twister comidas.(senko type baits) we will see how long these last.

 

The gambler ace in electric blue works great here too. (Senko type) As well as the gambler electric blue worms too.

 

But the amber red flake is the hot color.

 

Ok I need to sit and open a bottle of spring water and chill and try every senko color someday to see what works and what doesn't. But the water conditions and light conditions does tell us when to use what color.

It's no different than crankbait colors too right?

 

1. Red

2. Brown

3. Dark green

4. Light green

5. Blue

6. Chartreuse

7. Shad

8. Albino

9. Black 

10. Pumpkin

11. Purple

12. Violet

13. Firetiger

14. Firecraw

 

These colors should work because the crankbaits work in these colors? But we need to think about the flakes and pepper colors too. Like black red flake? Pumpkin pepper?

 

Don't forget about Dr. Loren Hill and his experiments on bass seeing colors. Under certain lighting and water conditions the bass only can see certain colors. There eyes aren't like ours. Understanding this it tells me they can hear the rattle and feel the vibration of my lure, they can smell my scents but they can't see it because it maybe the color they can't see at that moment. It's not the color to use at that time. In my little testing that I did with his color c LECTOR I had days were any color worked and times were only one color worked when no other color worked. All the days were blue bird days but the sunlite/ hues in the water were a tad different. So there were days any color would work. There were days when the color that was seen was limited to a red, or a green or a brown only one color would catch bass. Again only the one color worked. One more tip to tell is I find the lures with the Orange bottom seem to be hotter than the other lures without the Orange bottoms.

 

Mike at Siebert Outdoors offers jigs with some strands with orange too.

 

Someday I may paint up some plastics to try with orange bottoms. It's no hidden clue that one of the main big DD bass diets is bluegills and sunfish. There orange colored breast right? 

 

It's not about the color not working, it's the bass when they can't see it.

 

This is why I throw a variety of different colors and lures to see what color the bass can see and what presentation they want per there mood. Once you get into the rythm it's easy.  I throw topwater(green/chartreuse), cranks(red, Brown,chartreuse,shad,light green, dark green, violet etc) spinnerbaits in white or chartreuse depending on the light and water conditions. Then the c rig with electric blue or red or Amber senko.

Then the silver/Gray or gold/Brown mepps dressed. A panther Martin silver/Orange fly, Joe's fly in black gnat, fire tiger apache.

 

Don't stay with a bait that's not working for hours. I fan cast it and switch, when it's dead slow firetiger or chartreuse can be your best color just keep changing your speed and presentation.

 

I will make fishing from shore more successful for you. I posted all of this because I find that crank colors work in plastics too. We tend to forget it or not realize it. If example, green cranks are working go with green plastics. That's the color for that moment.

 

If your negative before you go fishing then stay home and watch Bill Dance.

What color is the senko with the red flake you're looking for?

Color ----> the same ones you use with your Culprit worms

Size ----> 5" is probably the all around size.

Assuming just a Texas rig ----> wrong assumption, there´s a bunch of ways to skin a cat.

Although I have many colors, the watermellon black flake and green pumpkin are my best. I like the 4" and 5" rigged either taxas or wacky. I've caught so many fish with these that I have a combo just for this, a Curado 50E on a Falcon Cara micro T7 finesse jig with 8lbs Inviz X.

Pick one from your favorite brand (it dosen't have to be Yamamoto..they all work) in your favorite color, in your favorite size (5" for most people) and fish them the 1000 different ways there are to rig them. If you DON'T catch fish..........find new water.

If I were limited to one color, it would be watermelon w/large black flake.  Natural enough for clearer waters and dark enough for darker waters. Since I can and do use more colors, I like watermelon w/large black flake for water with a greenish tint.  Green pumpkin for water with a brown tint.  Black or black w/blue flake for dirty water.  One color I have had zero luck on is white. Lack of shad in the waters I fish might be the reason?  Tom

A 5" black w/ red flake Senko is a terrible choice... Seriously, the fish don't give you a break when you put one on the hook ;)

I usually put on a 4" pumpkin and catch all size bass lm and sm. I've ran out of pumpkin more than once and was forced to use other colors and it doesn't seem to matter what color I used. They really didn't care as long as it was a Senko. Around here a 20" lm is a big fish and I've caught several on a 4".

Never put them on the back of a bladed jig either, it looks ridiculous and the fish turn up their noses at it  :eyebrows:
