Rated 5 out of 5 by DOAHBasswranglr Incredible bait
Just like t he 3 inch stick-o, the 4 inch stick-o delivers up the goods when it comes to driving bass crazy. I use the mardi gras color for river smallies(like a jacked up version of a watermelon candy color) and the smallies jump on this thing left and right. Fish it on a split shot rig(put the shot 18 inches above the bait) and this makes hover above the bottom as it drifts. A 3/0 wide gap hook gives you a better hook up rate. These things are super durable as well, I caught 17 smallies on one worm! Worth ever cent. Dont waste money on yum, yamamoto, case, or any other brand. Buy a pack or 20, you wont be sorry.

I pitch this think in between lily pads, as soon as it hits the water if there is a fish around you better believe u got him!!!! Best bait in my tackle box for largemouth. When nothing else is working I go back to my Bass Pro, Tournament Series Senko Worm Green Pumpkin seed

I've pretty much used all of the high dollar ones, and these fish just as good. O-ring em' and they are almost indestructible. its hard to beat the green pumpkin color, I throw that color year around and it never seems to fail me.

Junebug is a great color for stained water because the darkness is noticeable from a distance and when the fish closes in the flake in the stik-o gives a little flash to seal the deal. I would also reccomend a chartruse one or one that has a chartruse tail.
Dollar for dollar I believe Bass Pro Shops Stick-o is the best soft stick bait on the market. It is far more durable than the Senco, and the cost is almost half. I've been using them for years and have no urge to try another brand.
Disadvantages. Well I have both and while the stik o is more durable I've caught Next to no fish on them. I have caught fish on senkos and it's one of my go to baits if I can't get a bite. And yes I have given the stik os a fair chance. I do not just blindly support Yamamoto. The senkos just better.
T-rigged weightless with 3/0 EWG worm hook; 5/0 EWG worm hook for biggest Stick-Os. Long cast and let it sink to the bottom. You will get hits on the fall. Once it hits the bottom, 2 revs on your reel and let it sink again. Repeat. Vary the speed of your retreive, but I've found S-L-O-W works best..
Texas Rig, with a 4/0 off set worm hook. I Cast it out and let it sink, then pause for a minute then work it back, while twitching and bouncing it. The speed you use will vary depending on the elements.
Texas style w or w/out weight. I also wacky rig them with a 1/0 finesse hook. You can also cut off about an inch of the fat end and rig them with a flat headed jighead 1/4 oz. - Really deadly on smallmouth
I use a #1 Mutu light wire circle hook rigged wacky-worm style (hooked thru the worm right behind the smooth section). Cast them out and LET THEM SIT on the bottom for at least 30 seconds with a slightly slack line. If no bite, raise the rod tip to 12 o'clock, reel in some (but not all) of the slack, then let the worm sit again. Repeat this process of "lift and drop" most of the way back to the boat. Bass will pick up the bait and move off with it, causing the line to tighten. DO NOT SET THE HOOK! Simple reel up the slack and the fish will hook themselves. Fished this way, these baits are bass-catchin' magic. (Shhh. Let's keep this a secret.) :))
