SENKOS

Recommended Posts

Senkos are one of the hottest things for fishing bass. I just started fishing bass last year and it quickly became my goto lure. Texas rigged either weightless or weighted gives it incredible action.

My favorites are cinnamon brown (looks like an earth worm) and the dark green bass color.

They are expensive but worth it in my mind. Start with the 5" 9series and then branch out.

I actually have been using Senko's for a few years now. They are the real deal. You can fish your senko in many different riggings. IMO the key to fishing a Senko is letting the bait do the work for you. When a Senko falls it works in a side to side motion which usually triggers the strike. I usually run my Senko's weightless or Texas rigged. The key is to get that bait to the top so it can drop and flutter. And I almost always work it slow. If you go to www.yamamoto.baits.com and click on the catalog link they show you how to rig a senko or look for a post in this forum that that was asking how to fish worms. I believe that Dan Wood had the rigging page from last years Senko catalog on one of his posts.

The Yum Dinger, by YUM.

I got a couple free packs of these at a Bass Tourny last year. These are the ones that really turned me on to these tyes of baits. They seem to hold up a little better than the Senko. Those Senkos and ther other GY baits are toast after 1-2 fish.

StrikeKing 3X just came out with a "Zero Worm". I know its early, but has anybody tried one of these super strong buggers. I heard those super plastics really float and maybe that is a bad thing for those who go weightless.

Coach Dog,
I have used the stickos and christopherson's ones mentioned above. Both are cheaper versions of the senko but from my experience, work just as well. Hard to beat either of the prices compared to senkos and yamamoto's version... $6.00 for 10 pack? Yikes!

Bass pro even has sticko tackle packs with assortment of sizes and colors, you might want to look into that if you are just starting.

Yup! I be Dan's brother! Funny. Will keep the post to Senkos and all but give me or Dan an email if you get a chance and i can fill you in on the Christopherson stick baits and what not. Looks like he already posted anyway. For the money i think the Christopherson's are worth it. For convenience, the BPS online sticko ordering is probably easiest since who knows when you would get up to Alexandria where the store is located.

nah, you guys are crazy, senkos aren't any good grin.gif...

The zero from 3x will be good I believe. I've used the 3x plastics and they are tough - this one is injected with salt the same as the rest, so the sink rate should be similar. They won't be as tough as a standard 3x with the added salt, but still might be good.

Case Plastics Magic Stik is what I use the most. I get them from T.J.'s tackle (site sponsor). They also sell them down at 4 Seasons Sports. I did a lot of testing on these and found them to be very, very close to the Senko at a reduced price.

Hey guys,

Another good thing about those Yum Dingers is that they come in packs of 15 for the same and sometimes less $$$ than the other brands.

ChrisR71,
You'll find the Outkast Stick Worms to work just as well as the Yum Dingers, in fact the same company pours the plastic for both of them. Indeed, if you do like the Outkast Stick worms, you can buy them from Mike at Outkast for $20 per 100 baits. Good Luck!

Hey Guys,
These baits are awesome here on Vermilion. I use either green/pumpkin-black pepper or baby bass. Texas rigged, no weight, 3/0 Gamakatsu EWG, 17# Green Trilene. I have had two and three bass come out from under a dock after these things.
One hint Chris-- Be a line watcher--- sometimes all you get is line movement.

Dan, where is T.J.'s tackle, and/or how do I find their add/link on FM. I remember you commenting previously on Case Plastics; located their HSOforum but looking for the nearest dealer(online or not). I'm in Edina.

thanks

SERIOUSLY! It was THIS big!

buzbunni,
I can get you a phone number or email if you want to email me. They will be available online soon, but not yet. I will also see if I can get an update on tackle shops that carry these (4 Seasons down in RedWing should have them).

    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!    
    • Can't stand the guy and don't watch his craap!  I was watching videos on the Sherp vehicle which is pretty cool and these two popped up.  When I saw them mowing over Wild rice beds it [PoorWordUsage]ed me off and got me to send it in to the DNR.  
    • ahh good old whistlindiesel, your just part of the click bait generating even more revenue for him now   love him or hate him he sure knows how to generate some buzz   Also he was already on the Mn DNR $hitlist for this and ticketed see below:
