Big Bite Trick Stick Users ?

Recommended Posts

I saw the Big Bite 5" Trick Stick at a new Academy by me recently - anyone use on a T-Rig EWG hook ?

Curious how the action and durability is on the Trick Sticks  - they are meaty looking with a nice price point ... My reference for stick worms are : Senko , SK Ocho & Yum Dinger ... Thanks in advance !

I use them quite often.  I usually buy them by the 25 pack from Tackle Warehouse.  I almost always wacky rig them without an o-ring.  Like most other stick baits, they'll last 2-4 fish before they are thrown off the hook when fighting a fish.  They catch fish just fine for me.

I buy them because they have some unique colors.  They catch fish comparable to any other stickbait.  I generally tx rig them with a small tungsten weight and throw them at objects.  I save my senkos for wacky rigs.

They sink extremely slowly and with very little action in my experience. They're a good one to use with a weighted T rig but not one of my first choices if I want a weightless rigged bait.

I tried them years ago and when they were clearance/sale priced for $1.00 a bag and had no luck with them.  They seemed like they would work but again just didn't catch anything compared to other baits. 

 

If I want to get a budget priced senko.....  Yum Dingers have worked great for me.  I can often find them at DSG for about $2.00 a bag but I do have better luck with the original Senkos.

From the videos I have seen since posting  - there wasn't much action to the Trick Sticks ... Looks like something I would buy in Green Pumpkin & Black/ Blue T-Rigged with a 1/4 oz. tungsten bullet weight and pitch / flip to cover or objects . A "stick bait reaction bite" (if there is such a thing) ... I'll stay with Senkos , Ochos, BPS Stik - O  and maybe Yum Dingers when I need more action in a stick bait .

As my late uncle used to say: "If you want a loaf of bread, you go to the bakery."

I like them. They're actually the first stick bait I caught a fish on. They seem to be more durable than the Senko. And they ALWAYS seem to be on clearance. The crazy colors work.
