There will be some outliers, but the general consensus is to use 4 and 5" senkos.

You don't need a lot of Senko colors! Watermelon (light green) with blank/red flake,  Green Pumpkin (Amber green) with black/ red flakes work everywhere and adding pearl white with blue flakes should complete all the colors you need.

Soft straight tail plastic worms can be very effective rigged several ways and a wider choice or colors and sizes to consider if you want to spend more money!

Just to add to the above good replies, if I am throwing something other the a GY or bigger than 5", I use a weighted hook.

When the bite is tough throw a Wacky Rigged Zoom Trick Worm, watermelon neon with the tail dipped in Spike It Dip-N-Glo chartreuse garlic!

This.

 

I've also had some good days smacking dinks with a size 2 (or was it 4?) finesse wide gap and a 3 inch senko.
