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.

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
