senko's wacky style ????

Recommended Posts

I haven't tried the senko's wacky style yet, but have picked some up for an upcoming trip. How are folks weighing them down? Splitshot, weighted hooks....? Or is that defeting the purpose of the wacky rig and the action it provides?

Just slide an o-ring over the middle of the senko, slap on a Gamakatsu Wide Gap Finesse Hook Weedless #2 and toss it in the weeds or skip it under a dock. Can't go wrong....

Yep, Flourocarbon line is nice to have as sometimes braid will make the bait float. If you use the strike king 3x zero it will last long even without the O ring.

Like CB said, I've never added weight to a Mr. Twister Comida or any other stickbait I've used wacky style. If you want to get the bait down, fish it on a light (1/8oz or less) jighead.

Im the same as Ray and CB. I use Mr. Twister Comida and i have never put any weight on them at all when it comes to wacky.

What pound test of braid are you using?? I don't really ever use brain for this type of presentation. I really like using fluorocarbon, it helps the bait sink and it also is invisible under that water. grin

20 lb test to get them outta the docks.

It just seemed that with out a weight they were surface baits they never went down over 2-3 inches

I use 20lb powerpro and comidas sink nice and slow. The one thing I don't like about comidas and docks is that they seem to bounce quite high when skipping them, and the senkos just glide smoothly under docks. Does this happen to anyone else or is this a figment on my imagination? Also does everyone just hook the o-ring or do they hook some of the worm too like I do?

Its too expensive to hook the worm. We had a pretty slow day of fishing yesterday and I still went through about 8 senkos (me and my kid) and about 40 fish total. I could have went through 30 senkos without it...even when my hooks go through the senko by accident they split in half after a few casts or a fish

I use an eagle claw Kahle hook. Ill tell you what, I lose VERY few fish with them. The only drawback is they are so hard to get out of a fish's face.

It's a rubber o-ring. If you google wacky tool, you'll see how it all works.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
