Where to buy bulk Senkos and how long will they last sealed?

Recommended Posts

I have plenty of Senkos but my friends and I really like cinnamon brown for the lakes we fish and I think they do work better (probably just my imagination - however I think they are also easier to see underwater which helps sight fishing). I bought a bulk 100 pack of green ones a few years ago from Tackle Warehouse but was only able to get green because they didn't have the bulk 100 pack in cinnamon brown (which I think is the closet to earthworm color, which is why it's such a successful color).  

 

I haven't seen bulk packs of Senkos at TW or anywhere else since.

 

 

1.)  Where can I get bulk 100 packs of Senkos in cinnamon brown?

 

 

2.)  How long will a new, un-opened pack of Senkos last? (I would like to buy two to three 100 packs to last me a few years and want to make sure that new, un-opened ones won't dry out and go bad.)

 

 

3.)  How long will Senkos in the package last once the bag they are in is opened and the bag is continuously opened and closed?

That is full price. I should have said I meant buying in bulk to save money. Like if you buy a 100 pack it's $80 instead of $120.

Dick's Sporting Goods is the best place I've found to buy Senkos.

 

Recently, it was selling four packs for $25. I'd buy eight packs for $50 and use a $10 off $50 purchase coupon. That's eight packs for $40, which is $5 per pack.

You'll have to do the work, and wait for a sale, like mentioned above.

Get the Bass Pro Stik-O worms. They can be bought in bulk packs and work just as good as Senkos in my opinion. Plus they are cheaper.

GYCB stopped production of the 100 ct bags.  They are not available in "bulk" as in loose packaging, they do not sell unpackaged which is where the bulk retailers get theirs.  They also do not package for anyone else like most plastic manufacturers do so you get the same bait from different companies at different prices.  Your best bet would be to call them in Page, AZ directly and if you get enough friends to go together, they may cut you a deal.  I know the minimum order for a custom color is 500.

As mentioned above, look at the BPS Sticko. They flat out catch fish just like the GY brand. You can get bulk bags.

During a Christmas sale (I think) I got a couple of the 50 packs for $9.98.

6" Stik-O pack of 16 currently on sale for $4.63 each.  A bit more than a dollar off the regular price.

They go on sale for Christmas, and a BIG sale usually for the Spring Classic.

Are you talking about Senko's or BPS? And what website?

BPS Stik-O.  I got two packs at $9.98 each.  Ordered them from the website.  I can't remember if it was Christmas or the spring sale.

Red and green make brown (sort of cinnamony) so you might try dipping the ones you have in a weak red dye.

If you were fishing for money, I doubt folks would choose the BPS version.  That said, I use both and have no problem throwing the BPS if I soak them in secret sauce.    Wally what some great prices and make it worth the adventure...

Do you really think, all things being equal, that there are scenarios where you make the same cast to the same spot and one would get bit and another wouldnt?

I do....convinced myself years ago...and still believe it

 

That's not to say that my differing confidence levels might not affect my presentation...probably will

Absolutely....the rate of fall and movement both contribute to the presentation.  While it may not be an issue around spawn, it does on heavy pressured  lakes mid Summer.

 

I believe it they were the same price as BPS most would buy the GY....

 

Regardless, it sounds like you disagree, and that's OK.  It's just an opinion formed from MY observation

*meant to quote @NHBull

It's not that I disagree I just think we (bass fisherman) tend to overestimate the fish and I'm legitimately curious.   It is my feeling, based on no concrete evidence, that it would be very difficult for a fish to notice subtle differences in fall rate and action.  I see a difference in the fall rate but my brain can also make a lot more calculations per second than the LMB.  To me the difference in action is negligible to my eye.  Thoughts?

This is anecdotal.....I often have fishing parties in my boat and folks using the GY usually out perform all others, whether it is Texas or wacky.  To use your point, all 4 inch chad would catch the same fish as would the same color crankbaits, ect.  I can't  get there....if price was the same, what would you buy?  Apologies to the OP for a brief hijack.

Ive tried BPS and other knockoffs and nothing worked as well as Senkos. Thx though.

GYCB makes 2 types of Senko's, standard, pro series in different lengths. They also offer at least 4 different cinamon brown colors; 176, 215, 221 & 241, you need to be specific with color numbers.

Call GYCB direct to order in bulk.

Do you know when they started this policy?  A local-ish store has a few hundred packs last time I was there, but the place isnt very old.
