Slug-gos or Senkos? Why?

Recommended Posts

Sluggos are more versatile, they catch a larger variety of species.

The Sluggo is a soft "jerk" bait. That's what it was designed for and what it produces best at, as far as presentations go. You can cast it and just let it fall to the bottom, jerking it off occasionally, as well. So it's quite a versatile bait. Let a Suggo just fall - with no action on your part - and it will swim off the spot you cast it to, with no internal action per se. The Sluggo has less internal "mass" and sinks a lot slower, permitting this "gliding" action on the fall. This allows for more angler interaction, and consequently, where the jerk-bait action can be imparted by the angler.

The Senko however is a very different animal. This one is specifically designed to be used as a drop and dead-sticking bait. It's internal mass is very dense, allowing it to fall rather quickly. This quick fall rate, when fished on a Texas rig (with no weight), will cause the tail to wiggle frantically, which is very enticing to both LM & SM bass. And it will fall - basically - straight down most of the time. Rigged Wacky style, the Senko's both ends wiggle, which is really a dynamite presentation in some situations, i.e.: post cold front and inactive bass.

Each is designed for a specific action. Each can be used in each other's intended presentation, but less effectively, in my opinion.

I mean I guess you do have a lot of time while you're letting it fall to the bottom but...

I love both. The sluggo is better fished in shallower water because it sinks much slower than the senko, with a more erratic retrieve. The senko works better in somewhat deeper water with a slower retrieve. You need both to be effective many days.

Both have a place in my tackle box. i preffer senko knock offs to the real deal.But the slug go has a special place in my heart. IMO i would compare the slug go and the fluke or bass assasin not the senko. All catch fish though. i use both in different situatuions. shallow and deeper. senko has a faster ROF(rate of fall)

Two different baits altogether.  Yes, you can dead stick a Slug-O, and yes, you can work a Senko like a soft jerkbait, but each is best suited for their intended tasks.

Incidentally, the Super Fluke has pretty much replaced the Slug-O in my bag of tricks.
