I've been using the 5 3/8  stick-o exclusively for years now. It's been the only Brand and Size I buy. No need for me to keep trying other manufacturers as I might have done in Years past.

I stock up when on sale, there are  great bang for your buck and catch tons of bass, what else does anybody want?

How to make every non salt core stick bait work. 

Boil a pot of water, dump them in, count to 10, dump them into a strainer, run cold water over them. 

Run a 5/0 EWG to match the fall rate of a Senko, smaller for slower. 

Done. 

For reelz?  Color me skeptical, but the kinda skeptical that will try this the next time I have a box of Stik-Os. :)

The hot water will soften the plastics. I've used that method to straighten bent soft plastics. My only issue would be the 5/0 ewg hook. I have no need to use a hook that big on a 5" senko. If wacky it's a 1/0 finesse wide gap and if t rigged it's a 3/0 straight shank worm hook or ewg.

I would love to read that article if you can link it or pm it to me. I'm a nerd for that kind of stuff.

 

Dang, at my local Wallyworld they just went down to $6.36 - 6.96 a bag. For some reason they have the smaller size at the higher cost. At DSG however, they are $8.00~ a bag.

I think this is the article that explains the process but you can also look up the Georgia OEM D&J which does many of the same brands & molds. I think You tube has videos of how they make the baits, the key is really the guy mixing the barrels and making sure they are heated just right. I guess the Reason Why BPS soft baits seem to be about 50% of entire inventory is they have a line up for every type of fishing, every size, hundreds of colors, plus they use the BPS baits as Filler baits for smaller companies. BPS has about 8 different types of grubs alone, dozen sizes, 100 colors, then saltwater series, panfish, Walleye, plus they often insert discontinued baits on clearance racks during big sales or in the buckets. 

Like should work.

Yes, it's works. The cheapest thing you can do is get the 25 bags of the 5" Big Bite Baits sticks. Do what I said to them and they flutter the exact same. 

The only real difference is they don't weight as much so in warmer water run a 5/0 and it will match the Senko fall rate. I actually like these better in cold water because you can switch to a 3/0 and it falls slower than a Senko. 

The non salt core ones are still much more durable even after you soften them. Don't count any longer than 10, you don't want to melt them.

I started using 5" senko in red black flake. They worked great but one senko per fish. No money left even for a happy meal have to hit the dollar menu. Then I switched to bps stik o worms in Amber red flake cheaper. Lasts longer and works. They don't offer then anymore. Now Bizzbaits offers senko type baits. Affordable in back in the happy meal and I get my toy............lmao

I've had good luck with the 3" on a Ned rig jighead. The results are far from a Ned rig with a Zman bait, but they still work. I wouldn't both T rigging a bait that tiny weightless. Might put them on a Slider head though. GY Senkos are nearly $9 a pack around here, I'm not paying that to catch 1 or 2 fish per bait. 

I have found that a 3" senko rigged weightless on a 1/0 Roboworm hook will always catch a fish.  It might be a 5" panfish, but if I am 15 min from dark and I have been skunked so far, even a 5" panfish becomes attractive.  Of course, this rigging makes for a single hit lure, but again, the bar is closing and I don't want to go home alone. 

I do only buy them when I can find them on deep discount, but as a bait of last resort, they do work.  I have been looking at the BPS 4" split tails as a river bait, but still have a backlog of tiny plastics to work through before I give them a shot.

The Stick-O is there senko right? I got a big box of them a few years ago and I've just been fishing them nonstop.

I use yum dingers exclusivly, and have for several years. Most of the guys I fish against use GYCB senkos...............I take people's money regularly. Draw your own conclusions.

I fish yum dingers as well and they work great for me. I haven't done any comparisons to GYB Senko's so I really don't know how they stack up, nor have I tried the BPS stik-o's so not sure about them. I will stick with dingers especially when you can find them on sale for $2 a bag.
