Rated 4 out of 5 by BassMasterDave Good Wacky Rig Worm
Never used a stick bait before so I got these with my last order. Didn't get much attention when Texas Rigged so I almost gave up on them. Just as a last ditch effort I tried Wacky Rigging one. Slammed a 3 pound Large mouth first cast and a 2 pounder 2nd cast. The lure was pretty spent after that lol. I have the darker blue flaked stik bait but I'm fishing in some pretty murky water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Potomacrew An alternate choice
My friends and I fish the non tidal Potomac for bass. We target smallmouth but do catch largemouth. River levels and clarity can range from moderately high with heavy stain to almost crystal clear. When our primary white or chartreuse don't work and the fish want something a little more subtle, this pattern is great.
They cast well and you can rig tex'sposed or wacky and they work well. Either way in the shallow water of the Potomac or the many creeks I fish, I go weightless..

Rated 4 out of 5 by longmountainman As Good As Berkley
I used this worm wacky rigged on the Juniata River, PA in early October. Caught at least (30) 1-2lb small mouth in a 6 hour kayak float. The action and responsiveness are as good or better than the Berkley alternative.

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.) :))
