Senko Bobber Fishing

Recommended Posts

I started using the senko under a bobber last year after reading about it here and a few other sites. It turned out to be my most productive method last year. I followed a rig I saw on this site which is basically a slip bobber rig you would use with live bait. I had good results using the Berkley Maxscent General stickbaits. I also would cut the ends of the them to create tentacles on the ends, like on the end of a tube. One thing I struggled with was what depth to set the worm. Most of the time I would set it about mid depth of the area I was fishing. Does anyone else fish senkos under a bobber regularly and have any tips or tricks to share? Thanks!

Have done it with success, mostly from a tall dock and able to 

see bass along pylons in the clear water. Is an effective method

to be sure. In terms of depth, unless you've got a graph showing

depths, kind of a set-and-see as for depth.

 

Have done it only a few times from my kayak.

Have only done it once while pulled up on shore for lunch.  Threw the worm/float out over reef/dropoff.  Seems to work best with just enough ripple/waves to keep the stick bait dancin’

 

I like the Maxscent too, good idea to cut the tips tube style...

I do it when fishing the river. Find some clippers and use them or a senko 

will work.

Prespawn (like within a couple days of it starting) roaming smallies.  Use clear floats and a 3-4" senko on a long cast.

Not senkos so much, but other worms. I set up newbies who are having trouble with plastics with this rig, not too different than what is used for salt water trout or crappie. A drag and drop works best most of the time, but dead sticking, jerking, or shaking can be the ticket at times. Now for the technique name... :)

How about this for a technique name....."BS".........not to catchy but it does simplify with just the letters!!
