Gary Yamamoto's Swim Senkos have proven to be very effective for California lunkers, and are quickly becoming a sensation throughout the U.S. Characteristics such as a healthy profile, salt-impregnated and a nice smooth-and-even fall rate. Swim Senkos can be rigged and fished a variety of ways help make them the perfect tournament bait!
Great Worm, Great Swimbait
Now, I don't know if you can classify this as a swimbait. Regardless, I have just started using swimbaits during this year's prespawn, and I have to say that the Swim Senko has been by far the very best. I have also been using the Yum Money Minnow, Lake Fork Live Magic Shad, and the Owner Ribeye, but the Swim Senko always outperformed them. I think it is because of it's slender body which gives it better action in the water. Anyway, I like to use either a 3/0 or 4/0 swimbait hook. Any weight will do depending on the depth you are fishing. I prefer the Owner Twistlock Weighted Light Swimbait Hook, 4/0; it was designed by Gary Yamamoto specifically for the Swim Senko, and it seems to work the best. I also like using the 3/0 Flashy Swimmer swimbait hook. It has a small willow blade atached to the bottom of the hook and gives the bait a bigger profile; it works great in place of a spinnerbait.
All in all, this is a heck of a bait. It's very versatile and it catches big fish. It's not very durable, and it is obviously expensive, but it is a very dependable bait.

I was intraduced to the swimin senko this last spring. What a lure this thing is! I live in northern colorado and largemouth fishing is not all that popular. I fish a lot of old gravel pits in my belly boat. Ive been catching 3# plus all year! Gary's other lures may be some of the best lures on the market!

I've been using Swim Senkos for a few years now. Here in SE Michigan, it's become a favorite of mine for largemouth bass.
I've also found that freswater drums (Sheephead) and Northern Pike will hit them as well, having caught a 12.5 pound Sheephead and 30" pike on them.
The only negative I have is that they're expensive and don't last very long. They are soft enough that they tear easily. I've also had many that had their tails bitten off.

I've never fish at night with these but I'm sure it could be interesting. I think you should rig it with a 5/0 weighted hook and maybe a rattle tube inserted in the back portion of the swim senko....give it a try and please, let us know if it was good.
Use either a 3/0 or 4/0 weighted swimbait hook. If you go weightless, use a 5/0 Gamakatsu EWG Superline hook. The 4/0 Owner Twistlock light swimbait hook was specifically designed for this bait, and it seem to work the best in my opinion. It will also help to make your bait last longer. Good luck.
It depends on what you want to do with it. If you want a slow moving bait that stays off the bottom go weight less I like texas rigs too. If you want this lure near the bottom us a carolina rig with a bullet sinker above the barrel swivel. I always make mine weedless by using offset shank worm hooks.
