A Senko that won't come off?

Recommended Posts

I've seen that Savage gear has what's called the  Armor Tube Worm

From their description they claim that, ".... offers a reinforced construction that makes wacky-rigging more efficient than ever before. Built with nylon mesh infused through the center of the bait, the Savage Gear Armor Tube Worm firmly grips onto hooks and won’t go flying off on a cast after a fish-or-two"

Has anyone tried these worms rigged wacky and can attest to their claims?

Before I opened this topic they are one of the first ones I thought about.  I have never used the Armor Tube, but have used the 3D Armour Crawler( trick worm style) and they do last longer.  They are also harder to get off the hook.  I think these might be what you are looking for.  Also, if yo are using them weighted, try the Z Man Elaztech Zinkers.  But just know they are much more buoyant.

I've fished the Savage Gear worm a lot. I average 3-5 fish per bait. Doesn't sound like a big difference, but if you normally use Senkos and get 1-2 fish a bait and go through a lot of baits, it adds up quickly over the long run.

I use the Armor Tube a lot, and yes, they do last longer than other similar baits.  I wish they came in more colors!

Also, here's a trick I use to make Senko-type baits last longer:

They are definitely more durable than GYCB senkos. I'm not so sure about their claim of not needing O-rings with them when fishing them wacky rigged though, as I've found I still need to use the O-rings.

Do they wiggle like a big bites baits trick stick or yum dinger? I know they might not have the GYCB shimmie but if they are similar to other worms I might give them a shot. Lacking on color choices but that doesn't matter as much as we think. Will be following to see if any of yalls have experience with them, good question.

It really depends on where I'm fishing since how wildly the fish fights usually determines the durability of my senko. Sometimes it's 1 fish, sometimes it's 4-5. I may give them a try. I tend to rig one in each color on a finesse wide gap hook and stow it that way so it's ready to go any I don't tear a hole in it getting the hook back out.

Not sure how much the wiggle but I know they catch plenty of fish.
