What is the best way to rig a Senko?
Yamamoto himself rigs a 5-inch Senko Texas-style with a 3/0 Gamakatsu EWG offset worm hook. “Weightless is the most effective way,” he says. After casting the bait to a likely bass lair, let it sink freely on controlled slack line (a tight line will pull the bait ahead unnaturally).
How do you fish a weightless Texas rig Senko?
Throw the 5″ weightless senko’s on a medium heavy 7′ foot rod with a good baitcasting reel. This way you can cast it way out there on those shallow flats. When using the smaller 4″ senko’s throw them on a 7′ foot spinning rod. Go to the smaller bait if the bite gets a little tougher.
What size Senko is best?
The four inch is the best all around size, but I use the 5″ a lot. Don’t use the smaller or bigger sizes hardly ever.
How do you retrieve a Senko?
Picture a paper clip with one of its end tips bent slightly outward for easy on-off. Never out of it: Even torn Senkos can still contribute; just bite off the ragged section, turn the worm around and rig your hook through the tail.
What size hook is best for Texas rig?
My hook choices for Texas–rigged lures are 3/0 straight shank for plastic lizards, Senkos and 6-inch plastic worms; 4/0 straight shank for 7- to 8-inch plastic worms; 5/0 straight shank for 10-inch or longer plastic worms; 4/0 extra wide gap (EWG) for beaver baits and craws; and 5/0 EWG for creature baits and flipping
What is the best hook for wacky rig?
Ehrler’s recipe for a standard wacky rig is to stick a 1/0 Gamakatsu B10S Stinger hook through the “egg sack” (the smooth area) located about 1/3 of the way down on a Senko. The B10S hook is a specialty hook made for tying flies, but its unique design makes it the best wacky–rig hook Ehrler has found.
What size hooks for wacky rig?
We recommend using a 1/0 red Octopus style hook when fishing the most popular 5” size stick bait. The 1/0 hook size is perfect for securing enough worm without exposing too much of the hooks shaft. The Octopus style has a short shank with a wide gap, so you can get a good hook set on a quick strike.
Are Senko worms real?
The Senko Worm is simply a 4” – 5” plastic worm made with soft plastic. It has no flip tail, or curly tail, or anything to give it any action on its own. Many other companies now make their own versions of Senkos, with the Yum Dinger being very popular. They are usually fished weightless and sink very slow.
What color Senko works best?
The best color of Senko for all around performance is green pumpkin with black flake or the black and blue flake. The green pumpkin with black flake is the most versatile and effective color of Senko out there and the black and blue color is best when fishing in murky or stained water.
