SENKOS....not just for Bass anymore

Recommended Posts

   Went fishing today and had a little luck,caught 4 small ones . On one cast, I was dragging my SENKO along the bottom and felt a "TAP-TAP",so I stopped and waited.After a few seconds of no action I began my slow dragging retrieve again and then suddely.......WHAM!!!. I set the hook and began a good fight,As the fish got closer to the bank I noticed a yellow color :o. To my surprise,what I caught was a fat ,pot bellied yellow catfish,or "mudcat" as ive heard em called. This was certainly a first for me. So now I know theres more than just bass and sunfish in this pond ,the fishing could get to be a little more exciting,when im tired of cranking for bass,I can lob a hook full of crawlers out and sit on the bank and wait for the bite to come. ;D

I fished my first tourney last night as a co-angler. The only fish the guy caught who owned the boat was a bluegill, yup, on a senko with a 2/0 hook.

On a similar odd note, I caught a shiner tonight on a spinner bait. Go figure.

Nice, nice...Seems to me that Senko's seem to be the magic.

I'm a live bait fisherman myself and hope to land some major mo-fos this weekend since I rangled up somewhere around 100, 9 to 12 inch long Night Crawlers outa my front yard (try it) and am headed out to Large Mouth Central; I'll letcha know!...BTW I've never lost a tourney. Wish me luck!!!

Nope, they are not just for bass.  I have caught a crappie and a huge snapping turtle on one.  That was interesting, to say the least.

Snappers have a negative attitude when hooked.

Pulled in a bluegill once on a swimming senko.   It came up a bit the tail I saw it and just reeled in slow and steady, it didn't let go till it was out of the water and over the boat.

Well I have caught a catfish on one before too and also a frog and a bat. Although the bat was not in the water when I got it just afterwords.  :)

I feel sorta left out.  I have been fishing seko's for years and can't recall one fish I caught that wasn't a bass.

What am I doing Wrong?  :-/
