senko's wacky style ????

22 posts in this topic

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?

I have never added weight when i'm fishing my senko wacky style. Just hook it in the middle and go fishing!!! I love fishing senkos this way.

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.

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.

    •   NSA To Provide "Smoking Gun" Proof Obama Spied On Trump Mar 24, 2017 5:43 AM   Yesterday, Republican Devin Nunez Nunes held an explosive press conference outside the White House in which he told reporters that communications from the Trump team were picked up and disseminated within the government during the 2016 campaign.  Not surprisingly, the comments ruffled some liberal feathers and the mainstream media launched an immediate smear campaign calling for Nunes to resign his post immediately.  Now, according to Fox News sources, congressional investigators expect that a potential “smoking gun” from the NSA establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee as early as tomorrow.   The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.   The FBI hasn’t been responsive to the House Intelligence Committee’s request for documents, but the National Security Agency is expected to produce documents to the committee by Friday. The NSA document production is expected to produce more intelligence than Nunes has so far seen or described – including what one source described as a potential “smoking gun” establishing the spying.   Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretappedhim in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.   The key to that conclusion is the unmasking of selected U.S. persons whose names appeared in the intelligence, the sources said, adding that the paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration.   Because Nunes’s intelligence came from multiple sources during a span of several weeks, and he has not shared the actual materials with his committee colleagues, he will be the only member of the panel in a position to know whether the NSA has turned over some or all of the intelligence he is citing. If true, of course, this could put a 'slight' taint Obama's claim of a "scandal free" eight years in the White House.   **snip**   .........If Nunes is correct, and Trump was being wiretapped for reasons having nothing to do with Russia, that entire narrative falls apart, and the press will now have to spend the next few weeks building up an entirely new narrative to "justify" why Trump was being wiretapped on Obama's watch.   Link     Delicious...

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
