Rated 5 out of 5 by WDay Favorite Smallmouth Plastic
I discovered these worms this springs and have caught a large number of smallies, primarily on my home waters of the Willamette River in Oregon. I like the size, the darker than average cinnamon
color (with chartreuse tail) and the toughness of these worms. I get better results with these than I do with my old standby Sinkos or Yum worms. Plus you get more per bag. Even better if you can get them on sale. I prefer to Texas rig or drag them on a dropshot rig. Bass Pro: It might improve your sales if you would reduce shipping costs the more a person buys instead of penalizing them for ordering more merchandise. Seems like shipping should be free after a certain dollar amount, say $50 or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boo711 Great Bait
I have been fishing these for years and My hot Color is Pepper Frog Hot orange. Looks like a night crawler. Catches bass like one. No weight Texas rig, I am yet to try it Wacky. I do use a 1/0 Gama Skip Gap hook Keeps it straight. great hook sets.
Give the Color a try. You wont be sorry...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishngamer Bass Pro Shops Stik-o Worm Review
I would have to give the Stik-o worm a solid 5 out 5 stars. First time out with it caught inside of a half hour I caught 1 large mouth bass and 2 good size pickerel with it. Works just as well as the senko worm.

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.) :))
