Pink senkos

Recommended Posts

My lady stumbled upon a bag of these for a couple bucks and picked them up for me seeing as how they are my go-to bait when trying to catch a fish. 

 

My question is when or where would be the best time to use these?

I kinda make my own by putting clear senkos into a plastic bag with a red colored soft plastic bait. Most of the time I fish clear water and I've found they work great in the dead of summer when water temp is high and bass ain't biting on most lures.

Not exactly the same, but a weightless pink fluke worked for me today.  Stained yellow/brown water, hot, prob 80's water temps, later afternoon.

Worked in the same spot I'd just pulled out a bass on a purple senko rigged on a 1/8 oz lead weedless senko hook.

Stained water is where I have had luck with a pink lure (both a senko and a fluke).

Pink worms are great to use while bed fishing or sight fishing. As others have said, stained water. 

In addition, there is a rainbow trout color of senko that is hard to find in stores, but is pretty widely available online. It is watermelon on top, and pink on the bottom, with black flakes. I find these to be an absolutely dynamite color anywhere there are stocked rainbow trout, and pink would also be viable here.

Any time. I use bubble gum colored Trick Worms wacky rigged and T-rigged and they work. I've probably caught more pond bass on this bait than any other in the last 3 years and it catches them in every pond. It's all my buddy uses.

Yep...stained water.  I fish Bubblegum Senkos more than any other color.  When the water is green, why throw a bait that's green?  I can't see the d**n thing, why do I think a fish can?

Stained water the same as muddy water? Or is stained water just greenish water.

That rainbow Senko is such a good bait up here.

By stained, I meant greenish water with perhaps about 5 ft visibility for a light-colored bait (e.g pink fluke or stickbait).

This prompted me to do a thread search - I'd say the consensus is there is no consensus, but I liked Siebert Outdoors' simple definition from way back in 2005:

"I would say 4-5 ft visibility would be stained anything more clear anything less muddy."

(Incidentally, just caught another in a separate lake with a nose-hooked pink fluke, allowed to flutter down - hit at the bottom of the drop).
