Gary Yamamoto Senko - 6''
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by it8theB8 What more can you say? Simply a dynamite bait almost year round! Rigged weedless, wacky or weighted they just get the job done time and time again! April 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by pillsburyluhrs Hard to beat These stick baits are tough to beat. For whatever reason Yamamato is able to make their baits somewhat softer and that has proven a big plus in getting the fish to hang on to the bait longer, resulting in a much higher hook up ratio than most competitors I have tried. Conversely, it also means that they don't last as long. Purple has taken over as the best color in the last 2 years for me. Used to be watermelon with black and junebug. The old Natural shad is also hard to beat if the fish are not biting. October 29, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by PrinceC Too soft! That is what makes them good but you go through a ton of them. Personally I prefer the Yum Dinger & would buy those first. August 20, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Johnathan Great when wacky styled One of the best senkos out there, my only problem is the price. WAAAYYYYYY too over-priced. YUM Dinger are my alternative, same results, twice as cheap. January 5, 2012

Details:Honestly, I can't see how anything could bite on one. Fish will bite on anything, but I'm surprised to hear that they actually work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
A:fish it weedless. Size 4 wide gap hook, feed at least an inch and up to 2 inched of the bait over the point of the hook, then pull it out of the side and feed the rest of the hook turn it 180 degrees and measure where the bottom if the hook lines up, bend the worm slightly and reinsert the hook all the thru the bait. Then push 1/16" of the hook back in the bait. The bait should be straight when you are finished. Cast to 1-10 feet of water and let the bait sink - the longer you leave it the better. 90% of the fish come on the fall or in the first 10 feet of the retrieve. Reel it back and try it again. Watch the line closely because with it weightless you don;t really have contact and bites can go undetected.
A:I use the rubber o-rings and a senko tool to put the o-ring in the correct spot. It seems they work best with the ring a little off center. Then you use a circle hook placed through the 0-ring, not the Senko. Throw out the Senko and the Bass will almost always hit it on the fall.If you feel the hit simple start reeling in the line and a circle hook will set itself. it's as easy as this, good luck!
A:Hook it right in the middle so the worm sinks like it fell into the lake. You can buy wacky rig o rings that you put in the middle of the worm and it will help the worms last longer. You can use weedless hooks for heavy weeds. When you get into this type of fishing there are many things you can do with nail tip weights to make one end fall faster and tumble the worm or to make it fall deeper. That should get you started. Good luck!
