Why isn’t the Cinnamon Brown colored Senko more popular?

Recommended Posts

I’ve always like cinnamon brown colored Senkos. They've almost always caught fish for us here in central Minnesota. Cinnamon brown looks just like a worm which is something bass eat. What bass doesn’t love worms!!!

 

Cinnamon brown is also easier to see underwater so when fish are shallow you can watch them take the bait and see the hook which is harder to do with darker colors. 

 

I have done unscientific studies where I fished a cinnamon brown Senko and my friend fished a black or green pumpkin one and the results were always the same with both of us catching fish, so I’m not sure how much color even really plays into it besides satisfying the angler. I have had the same type of results with 2 fisherman fishing exact opposite homemade Teckel Sprinker Frogs, one being white and one being black and both catching fish. 

 

Have some fisherman used cinnamon brown and had poor results wherein they then switched to a different color Senko started catching fish or fisherman who’ve just never had any luck with the cinnamon brown color?

 

 

So why isn’t the Cinnamon Brown colored Senko more popular?

I've never had to try cinnamon.  When I throw a Senko its either Watermelon red or junebug, bass down here seem to like those colors.  My brother loves to throw bubble gum Senkos, I think its looks ridiculous, but he catches fish so I can't complain.

A friend of mine was telling me how the pure white Senko works on a certain lake and always catches big fish. We happened to be on that lake and he caught a 3-1/2lber that day. He said it doesn't work on other lakes though and that he's tried. Weird.

Where would bass get worms? (Except from fishermen). Earthworms  are not found in lakes.

I'd assume they get dropped into lakes by birds, crawl into lakes when it rains, etc.....

I have the same experience with white.  I fish tidal marshes on both the East and West side of the Mississippi river.  On the east side I have much more success using white(jigs or swim baits) than I do on the West side,  so much so that I don't even throw white when fishing my spots on the west side. Unless its a Shad colored crank bait, those work on both sides of the river.

Because it doesn't fit into any color chart!

 

Just like Cinnamon Pepper Neon Junebug Laminate doesn't fit.

It is just like oxblood, a dead ringer for an earthworm but not very sexy. As for earthworms not being in lakes, well TnRiver46 nailed it, when it rains worms come to the surface and a lot of them close to the bank end up in the water.

My bass prefer the elusive “red shad” earthworms 😉

Most largemouth bass have learned that if they try to gulp a spoonful of cinnamon, it will dry up in their mouth & they won't be able to swallow it.  Cinnamon brown Senko's bring back those painful memories...

Cinnamon senkos don't work, you should send them to me to be disposed of properly, especially if they're cinnamon/purple flake.

You would think that I had them in my arsenal for a long time beings as I have been with Yamamoto for 20 years but it took me getting my butt handed to me on the Potomac one trip before I added them.  There's just too many to choose from and so many work.  I have that color in bulk now.

I think you could let 30 preschoolers paint Senkos random colors and they'd all catch fish.

 

 

But even though I know this, I'll probably take a closer look at Cinnamon Brown. 😳

Cinnamon with the purple flake have produced very well for me, also.

I use that color a lot in the Upper Potomac when the water is clear. Same with Zoom's scuppernong color as they don't see it very often.

The replies are truthful and some are funny but the fact is that you have to "match the forage" in the body of water you are fishing,.

 

For example, a white colored bait to mimic shad colored prey works great in the Potomac River.

 

So your cinnamon colored bait has to resemble a color the bass are familiar with and equate to something to eat, like a crawfish or an earthworm.

 

For a listing of some of the colors you can consider for plastics check out this link and you can note all of the colors offered which will put you in a mental institution. But the Bait Monkey will love you!

 

Good luck and keep chucking that cinnamon Senko.

We must have a lot of bright blue baitfish swimming around right now because this have been the hot color in my homemade bladed jigs the last few weeks. Same color in jigs and plastics too.
