Wacky Rig Tool

Recommended Posts

The wacky rig tool comes with a screw on one end of it to hold the O-rings on. I just tried to remove the screw and it seems to be frozen in place. I squashed the tubing part of the tool with a pair of pliers... oops :embarassed2::doh: . Am I supposed to load the o-rings on by slipping them over the head of the screw one at a time? Or does the screw actually come off?

I have the same one, I just put them over the screw one or two at a time. Always remember, if it ain't broke, dont fix it. :)

Buy some 3/8 heat shrink tubing at an auto parts store. Cut it into strips and slide it over the worm, and don't worry about any tools or anything else.

X2 I have the O rings as well just never used them. I heard it doesn't fall right and not only that the hook is exposed so I would think it would be a major snag problem.

I did recently fill mine but don't recall if took screw off or just used a pen.

My advice for heat shrinking tubes would be buy extras and keep them inside the house till there needed. Through out the summer all my pre-cut tubes shrunk due to the heat..

The screw actually is there for two purposes. One is to hold the O-rings and the second reason is to be an adjustment for positioning your senko center. Insert till senko stops, slip o-ring over. Your senko shorter, screw the screw in further till senko is centered. :)

Lowes plumbing section, #83 o rings work great. Just pull the o-ring on the senko with your fingers. I'm averaging 13 fish per senko.

I do get hung up fishing whacky senkos around brushpiles and buckbrush, weedless hooks help a little, but hangups still occur, just have to live with it and go dig them out, because that's where the fish are.
