  • Proven very effective for California lunkers
  • Healthy profile
  • Salt-impregnated
  • Nice smooth-and-even fall rate
  • Can be rigged and fished a variety of ways
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!
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 57 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not sure about this one When I saw this product I thought It would be ideal for bass and crappie. However when I saw the bait going through the water the tail wasn't moving back and forth the entire bait was spinning, this is not what I expected. I will try the bait again and if it performs as advertised I will send another review. March 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Senko! I use all types of Gary Yamamoto Senkos and these are no exception. A great beat that swims at whatever depth you choose. This color has been a big hit all year long! March 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great swimbait........ I generally fish swimbaits such as the ''ripple shad'' or ''money minnow'' on quarter ounce jig heads with great success in relatively open water for smallmouth bass and walleye. So when I spotted these ''swimsenkos'' in ''watermellon cream'' at my local tackle shop, I knew I had a winner for a slower presentation in shallow water. Last weekend I rigged one on a collarless one eigth ounce jighead and caught three smallies on my first four casts! I'm sure they will perform just as well on a small belly-weighted worm hook when fished in weedy water. This will definately be one of my new go to baits. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gets the job done The first time I used this bait I pulled a ten pounder out of a local pond, I had never caught anything over a pound in this pond. I bought a few more packs (watermelon black/red works great where I live in central florida) and took them out on the boat. I was pulling in 1, 2 and 3 pounders almost every other cast. If the weather is right, this is probably the best bait to use. I returned to the local pond with these bad boys and hooked up on that big bass again. There are several ways to rig them but I just do it texas rig style. They are a bit pricey but worth every penny! April 20, 2013

A: 
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.

A: 
Weightless Texas rig it if going into weeds or lily pads. Texas rig it on a 1/4 oz shaky head jig or with a 1/4 oz bullet slip sinker to keep it more evenly keeled if there arent weeds or pads around.

A: 
I have fished it weightless, with the smallest slip sinker possible, and with a weighted hook depending on wind and conditions. Works best in vegatation - slow retrieve through the grass.

You should go Texas. It'll let the paddle tail do the job.

A: 
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.

A: 
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.
