Rated 5 out of 5 by LBassAssassin My number one Worm!!
I use these first and foremost when it comes to my bass fishing arsenal. Its my secret worm and it was showed to me by my father who has used it for smally's and largemouth for several years with great results. I have tremendous luck on these and just landed a 5 pounder, a 7 pound WV hawg (in my picture) and also had another 7 pounder on with this worm. Highly Recommended!! My go-to worm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bassgal Great value
I have fished with a lot of different brands of stick baits, and most all work well. I have had my best luck with the 4 1/4 size, catching the most fish and my personal best, a 12 pounder with this size. The Sticko is my favorite, because it is inexpensive, relatively tear resistant and is available in more colors than most of the other brands. I like to rig them with a 1/0 wide gap hook, and throw them weightless for most shallow situations, wacky rigged for thick weeds, and Texas rigged for deep fishing on structure. I almost always have one tied on one of my rigs where ever I go to fish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BuckHunata Killer bait
I use these wacky rigged for bass throughout the entire season and let me tell you they have caught their fair share of bass landed an 8 lbs bass up here in Canada on an inland lake not to mention many others being from 1-7 lbs went through over 100 in the opening week of bass season i cant keep the fish off these, for the price you can't beat them either sure like most soft plastics they don't last long but you think a bass can tell the difference between a Gary and a bass pro senko??? Answers no if i thought so i would be throwing "higher end senkos" (Truly just higher priced). I use the dark colours on bright sunny days and the brighter colours on cloudy days or evenings, wacky rig them cast them to cover and hold on tight... Quality is great depending how you rig them four stars only cause wacky rigging they tear easily otherwise awesome colour selection and an overall affordable great bait

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoDogs My go-to bait
These little 4 1/4 inch Stiko's are my go-to bait. I especially like the Baby Bass color and the Red Shad. I fish from the bank at a local city lake and have caught several quality bass, two of them in the nine pound class. I fish them weightless with a 2/0 light wire Texas-rigged hook, using a light action spinning outfit with 15 # Spider wire stealth in HI-Viz yellow with a flourocarbon leader., so I can see it and the fish cannot. You can cast that a long way. I just retrieve it with a slow erratic sideways twitch in shallow water, or in deeper water, with a slow lift and pause to let it rise and drop. It is very hard to hang it up. This is a great bait!

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.) :))
