Senko day

Recommended Posts

This is the result of what I have read in another hot topic called "situation senkos."

I think its my turn to experience the "senko magic."  I am going to pick a day to go out and hit 2-3 different reservoirs 600-1000 acres approx. each.  I am going to take only senkos with me - from 3" to 7" sizes in various colors.  I have access to a 7' spinning rig spooled with 8lb p-line flouro and a 7' baitcaster spooled with 20lb yo-zuri hybrid.  I can fish deep or shallow, cover or open water, rock or grass lines.  Water is pretty clear or sightly 'wind-murky.'  

Recommendations please for me to run this test - size of senko, which rig, t-rig or drop?  etc.  I feel this is a good test for the hype since I am, for all intents and purposes, someone very new to bass fishing.    

Thanks.  I will post results after.

A Senko stickbait has it's time and place in ones fishing arsenal, but it's by no means a lure that should be used to the extent that you're going to be using it for. It's a great bait for shallow fishing as it's usually rigged weightless. Wacky rigged it's a killer bait for skipping under brush, docks, etc.  There are so many other types and kinds of plastics that lend themselves much better to being fished wt'd either deep or into weeds then a Senko.

My advice is to spend your time learning to fish a Stickbait on spinning gear, weightless, and shallow.

One of my friends believes that if they aren't biting a senko, they aren't biting at all.  

Be careful...

PWE, you should consider taking *** ***....they are much cheaper and last a whole lot longer than the name brand senko.

One of my friends believes that if they aren't biting a senko, they aren't biting at all.

I have a friend like that too. He is under the "stickbait spell"....topwater early and stickbait the rest of the day no matter if he's gettin' bit or not, it seems as though he's forgotten that he has a boat full of other lures and plastic baits.

I'd rig one Texas Rigged Weightless with the baitcaster... maybe even with a small splitshot... get up in the thick moss and heavy cover... It's virtually weedless when rigged weightless... On color I really love the watermelon... don't know why it catches so many fish....

with the spinning rod, I'd rig it wacky style... sometimes a different look will get their atttention... I've caught big bass both ways.... I fish a lot of small lakes down here in Texas with super thick weedy cover- frogs work, but the Senko rigged weightless is the true money maker, and also works good at night....

Zoom flukes work great as well, but not as weedless as the Senko.... :)
