Rated 5 out of 5 by marylandboy Best stik bait
Theres no need to pay twice as much money for the Gary Yamamoto senkos because these work just as well. They are killer for dead sticking, and put on shakey heads. The 4 1/4 inch bait is a perfect all around size. Its small enough to not scare smaller fish but big enough to intrest the large ones. You can whackey rig them but i found more success whackey rigging zoom trick worms because when you pull you get more bend from the wom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jMyers excellent bait!!
I use this bait ALOT!! often with a finesse hook and splitshot, fish it nice and slow when water is cooler, have caught alot of bass and several large ones doing this. also as the weather warms up a bit ill fish it on the same rig, but faster with short, sharp twitches, bass will hammer it when they turn up theyre noses at other baits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rockchalk06 Great price
I got sucked into the Senko craze like everyone else. I was unhappy with the price of other brands and the quantity.
I really cant tell a difference in feel or action compared to other brands. I do know that fish tear any brand up pretty bad so being around 4 bucks and a large bag helps keep me on the water using them.
If you use the wacky o-rings instead of hooking through the bait itself, they will last much longer.
I have used these wacky rigged and Texas rigged with great results. My favorite colors in this size are Red Shad, baby bass and Blue Flake. Both seem to produce well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stevelikestofish great wacky worm
This is a go to bait in the rivers of western Virginia. Great bass bait, particularly the camo road kill color in 4 1/2" size.

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.) :))
