Senko and o rings

Recommended Posts

So I just got a o ring tool and extra o rings I got #10 size and large for the saddle is this the right size for a normal 5 inch senko?

I’ve found the O rings work better than nothing but tubing works best.

I don’t know the size of the o ring but similar to what @tcbass states above, I have use the heat shrink for electrical wiring.

I found that shrink tubing works great if you want the fish to just take your worm.  I don't know how many times I had a fish swipe the worm and all I got back was a bare hook with the shrink tubing on it.  I found that the Goody hair bands work the best.  Double them over so they make an X and then your hook remains perpendicular to the worm for better hookups.  Can get a package of about 100 at Walmart for a couple bucks in the girls hair section.

I use the heat shrink wrap and you are right, sometimes the bass will take the worm and leave you with the band and hook. Happened to me yesterday.

 

I will give the Goody hair bands a try. May be easier to use and have better results than the shrink wrap.

 

But I must write that the shrink wrap has served me well all these years. Caught many bass on one Senko before it was stolen or fell apart.

 

Great post. Thanks for the info.

I guess I was hooking differently, I went through both the tubing and heat shrink. I guess maybe I wasn’t following the conventional rigging idea. Never had a worm stolen. I will look into the hair ties as well sounds much easier and cheaper than rigging with the heat shrink.

These are like the ones I bought.  I think the pack I got from Walmart was a multi size pack and I only took the medium sized ones for fishing.  The rest went for my daughter's hair.
