OMORI TRICKS HIS SENKO, HOW?

Recommended Posts

I found this interesting and I'd like to try it seeing how I got a few extra blades laying around. Any ideas on how he is attaching the blade?

Edit: I knew it!  Ok, I should have searched further. Found other videos showing how folks are doing this, seems like it has been out for awhile. Also found tackle already made for this. (Screw lock blades.)  I need to get out more.

I can't remember who but one of the Elite Series anglers showcased this presentation on I think the Red River an number of years ago.  You use a hitchhiker screw in keeper for holding the blade to the bait.

I made some up a couple winters ago and completely forgot about them....don't think I ever tried one....once on the water, I guess I start thinking....."Hmmm...what made me think that I could actually make a better Senko than GY?"

I do need to try it in these muddy local waters this year.

You are correct in that it totally messes up the "natural" action of a Senko but adds a different one that in certain circumstances may be a better action.  I certainly wouldn't waste a Yamamoto Senko on that technique due to cost.  I would use the cheapest knock-off I could find.

Tim Horton showcased these on his show a few years ago. 

His company, Profound Outdoors sells them already rigged.

I was on Okeechobee yesterday with a guide who uses something slightly different, yet accomplishes much the same.  The difference with what Tak uses is that the blade can get bitten off or lost on a snag.  The one below is an integrated lure:

I also also think the screwlock helps those soft Senkos last longer too.

 

Either way, I agree the added blade in the brackish water really stands out.

The Duz-It has been around a long time. 

I use the bronze colored blade on a 6/0 almost exclusively on Okeechobee and other similar lakes down here. 

The advantage to them is you can move the blade up or down the hook which will change the presentation.

^^ This.  He calls it the "MJ Rig".

I have been using that for a for a couple of years or more. Use a hitch hiker attached to a good swivel (small) & a #2 or 3 Colorado blade depending on the water color. It works well.
