Gary Yamamoto Senko - 4''
a friend gave me a bag of these a couple years ago to try, 4" 020 colour. i'd never heard of them and i thought hmmmmm, gee thanks... but now i owe most of my enthusiasm towards fishing to him. getting skunked is a thing of the past. big bass, small bass, big crappie, and pike all love em. 2/0 or 3/0 offset hooks and some 10 lb power pro with a 4' flourocarbon leader will seal the deal. even good for fishing over scum and lillypads(lose the flourocarbon)...trust me, there will be a bass 3' from you under the scum and the senko will show you he's there. in deeper water just be patient on the fall. and let it sit where it lands. yank it in a bit and let it drop again. you could pull a bass out of a puddle with this one, buy lots tho bcuz they tear. other stick baits dont compare. yamamoto got it right

the Senko rules!!!!
this 4" senko was an experimental color for me. blue with chartreuse flake. i threw it because i had ran out of a different color of senko. so i changed to this color and the first cast with it i had a 10 lb bass and the next cast an 8 lb bass. you can imagine the me and my buddy in the boat. we were going nuts. the pics are attached. i love this worm. great big fish color if your in the right waters.

Love Yamamoto Senkos
These Yamamoto Senkos are a necessity. I've got bags and bags of them because all they do is produce. I like to pair them up with the Luck "E" Strike Perfect Worm Rig. Usually I use these locally for both large & smallmouth bass, but found fishing the canals in Florida, the Bream loved 'em too! Pics attached.

probably my favortite shallow water lure. i find that 4" watermelon laminate is dynamite, but pumpkinseed in 3'' works great on crappies too. I've had limited success with the 5'' models, sole because i dont use them near as often as the 4''. but my picture to the side were all on 5'' chartreuse laminate.
