When Do You Change Your Senko?

Recommended Posts

I use a Senko with and O Ring for wacky fishing. After about 4 fish and 10 casts, the dark colors like Watermelon Black Red start to turn a lighter color in the middle. This could be due to tension or salt loss. They also lose their tension and become real floppy at the ends.
The question is this... What makes you replace your senko or change the color?

I replace the senko when it's too torn to repair or stay on a hook. Most of my wacky rigged senkos are baits that were texas rigged senkos at one point. Trying to texas rig a once used wacky rigged senko hardly ever works in your favor.

 

change colors when the first color doesn't work.

I replace when it breaks in half or when it ends up 100 feet up on shore.

when it gets tore up pretty good and i cant get it to stay on a hook, or the color is fading. then it goes into my plastic bin where it separated by color to get melted down.

i fish them till they die... up to 30-40 fish when using o-rings, 3-4 fish without the rings...

When I cannot hook it again and no amount of mend-it or super glue will hold it together. Usually lose it long before then.

When it starts to slide down the hook or when it doesn't resemble a Texas rig it's time to go onto the next one... I am real OCD about mine so it takes a hit on my pockets!!

Fortunately frog and crank season is here in Jacksonville so my pockets can get a little fatter

Replace when torn & beat up, I've fished with one almost all day. O-rings make the difference for sure. If I know the fish are there, I'll change colors after they don't hit it with in the first 8-10 casts.

When there's nowhere left to put my hook I'll change them. If there worth saving I'll save them to use as a trailer later though.

When its so beat up that it won't stay on the hook any longer, and it can't be trimmed back, it becomes a jig trailer.

When I wacky rig them, they usually fall off before I change them. Texas rigged I'll change after I've trimmed it a few times. As far as colors go, I usually only change when the fish tell me to.

I wacky rig it on a Carolina rig. When it breaks I fish with the half piece or save the half senko for later.

Once the salt wears off the senko a shot of bass scent will help too.

I never change a senko unless it breaks. Now I do change brands of senko type plastics due to certain colors.

I rig it weightless on one end, catch a couple fish, then rig it weightless on the opposite end, and catch a couple more fish. Then I repair them with mend it, send it back into the bag with a couple sprays of fish attractant, and keep using it till it is to ripped to repair.
