Tested and proven on California lunkers, Gary Yamamoto's Senko has quickly become a sensation throughout the United States. The Senko's salt impregnated, has a healthy profile, casts like a bullet, and features a unique smooth-and-even horizontal fall when fished weightless or wacky style. It's not magic, but it's pretty darn close.

There aren't many sure things out there anymore, but after four years of fishing with Senco's, I can absolutely guarantee you more bass in the boat. What proof do I have? Over the past two years my log book shows I've caught 665 bass on Senco's alone. On a spring day last May in Wisconsin I landed 72 bass in about 6 hours, all with Senco's. Four of them went over four pounds. The 4" Senco is my favorite and believe me I've experimented with many sizes and colors. I rig it weedless on a 2/0 Gamagatsu extra wide gap hook, skin hooked back into the body of the lure. No weight is needed. My favorite rig is a 6' medium action g-loomis IMX spinning rod with 20lb test, 6lb diameter Power Pro line with a three foot flourocarbon leader. This set up assures you a solid hookup with little chance of loosing a trophy due to light line. My favorite color? Any color works as long as it's watermelon w/black flake. :) That's all I purchase anymore. It covers all conditions, all the time. I can't tell you how many novice fishermen I've introduced to this wonderful little bait with great success. It's as close to being THE perfect lure that I've ever found. Ask anyone that's tried them and I'm sure they will agree with me. Give them a try, you'll be glad you did.

This senko can not be duplicated. I have tried many other senko's like this but none compare to the way these sink and how bass can not get enough. Pulled 15 bass pond fishing an about a half hour. Awesome product to use anywhere

Before a weeklong family trip to Michigan I purchased some of these along with 1/0 Gamakatsu Finesse Wide Gap Hooks and the tool for placing an O-ring on the worm. I haven't fished for largemouths in over 30 years, and I caught 50+ in a few days of fishing. Biggest of the week was a 3 pounder caught on the edge of some lily pads. Heck, my 9 year old daughter caught a couple of nice largemouths on a 4" Senko wacky rigged--and it was her first time ever fishing! I even caught some nice fish off our dock using a bobber (to give me enough weight to throw the worm out far enough). While I don't think using these behind a bobber is ideal, I was amazed that I was still able to catch fish that way. The key (for me at least) was to fish these slow, without any added weight. Most of the strikes were as the worm was sinking, and you really have to pay attention as the strikes are often very subtle. Made for a great week of fishing!

Where to even begin with this bait...
I never thought very highly of stick baits having fished with many other brands of them, then I got on to the 4" Yamamoto Senko in Green Pumpkin/Black Flake and Red Shad colors and the fish practically caught themselves. This bait is remarkable technology for such a simple looking thing.
Sitting on a pier fishing the rocky shallows of the point, I just dead sticked them and within an hour had 5 small mouth bass to call my own. I couldn't believe the results these put up.
If you haven't tried these, you owe it to yourself to give them a shot.
4" is my personal go to as it is just big enough (seemingly) to entice lunkers while also being small enough to get sucked in by your more common 1.5-2 pounders.
3/0 EWG hook texas rig weightless is the way to go!
