As the title states. How do you fish a Senko: Wacky Rig, Texas Rig, Other. I normally use Wacky Rig, but T-Rig definitely shoot under docks easier.

I usually fish them t-rigged or weightless.

Texas rigged both weighted or unweighed. ;)

  Although I dont typically fish senko's,... I did buy a few colors in the 4" size. Just to add to a jighead for a deadstick type lure, slowly stitched on bottom, for the extremely clear watered lakes here.

 Then, and only then, do I fish a senko.

Vast majority of the time it is wacky.

Plainly and simply, my most productive
method for bass.

I never Texas rig them, always wacky rig. As of right now, I've caught 237 bass this year wacky rigging. That's 72% of all my bass caught this year.

Is that mostly docks?

Docks, laydowns, lilly pads, even empty shoreline. I throw the wacky rig literally anywhere. Rarely do I throw it out in the open, but anywhere along shoreline and structure.

Me too, but of course, in practical terms I fish almost any soft plastic T rigged 90% of the time because it catches fish 90% of the time.

What's funny is that per the polling, far more people fish wacky rigged Senkos while going per written posts, T-Rig far exceeds it.

i rarely use stick baits anymore but when i do i either use a t-rigged if i want to do a painfully slow search for them. a wacky rigged  stick bait for when i feel like targeting a specific area.

But who's counting?  I use a neko rig which is basically wacky with a nail weight in one end.  I also use an o-ring and a weedless wide gap hook.  If there are fish around, they will bite this.

Weightless Texas rigged because I can throw it anywhere and skip it way back under trees and docks without worrying about getting hung. I use baitfish colors and fish them faster like a soft jerkbait or use browns and greens and deadstick and twitch on bottom

I have fished them just about every way imaginable in the past, but these days it's 99% fly-lined.

I voted other since I use senkos in so many different ways on any given day.

I normally fish senkos the following ways:

Weightless Texas rig

Texas rigged with a bullet sinker 

Wacky rigged weightless

On a drop shot, nose hooked (3 or 4 inch senko)

On a drop shot wacky rigged (5 inch or pro senko)

I had to pick other.  I fish a senko wacky, unless I encounter weeds that are too thick, then weedless.  A Texas rig usually refers to a bait rigged weedless with a sliding bullet weight - something I also use.
