Rated 5 out of 5 by carps88 Best all purpose soft-bait! I have been using these for year's. They work great for all fish species. Use large bubblebum gum color for large northern pike's. March 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Marabou11 The forgotten one This is the lure by which I have most of my personal records with: 80+ smallmouths in one day of fishing, multitude of 4 and five pound smallmouths and my second biggest smallmouth ever, at 5 1/2 pounds. I fish it texas style with or without a split-shot or belly-weight. I fish the 3" model in rusty melon and the 4" model in golden shiner. December 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by EelRiverBandit Excellent lure This is an excellent lure. It slides over lily pads, weedbeds, rocks, and any other area where there is heavy cover. It has a great action and attracts bass like roadkill attracts buzzards. October 23, 2012

Details:I'm a newbie bass guy (there are no bass where I live) and making a trip. I picked up some 6" black Slug-gos and 4/0 hooks. But I am unclear as to whether I need a weight, like a bullet weight for texas rigging?
A:No weight. Fish very slow with small jerks.
A:Depends how you are fishing it, they are great weightless you just cast them out let them sink down a couple feet and bring it back to the boat with a twitching motion. The Slug-go is one of the original softl plastic jerkabaits, anything you read about fishing other soft jerkbaits (such as the now popular "flukes") will also apply to the slug-go.
A:Both! some times using weight is the way to go. Other times you need to go with no weight . The wind will help you make that choice. If you are going to texas rig it then go with as little weight as you can! But try wacky rigging this worm.
A:When selecting lure colors for freshwater fishing there are two factors to keep in mind. The first is to "match-the-hatch". To do so, you will need to find baits that mimic color of the prey of the species that you are targeting closely. For instance, when fishing in a large lake with heavy amounts of shad, a silver, black, white, or blue based color (depending on the color of the shad in the lake) would be appropriate to use. If fishing a pond where the main forage may be small bream (such as bluegill) try using a chartruse and white or firetiger color.
As well, base the colors that you are using on the water situation that you are facing. If fishing in clear water, lures that have a more subtle or natural color would be great, as this will not spook fish. However, if fishing in water that may be murky or muddy, try using a lure with a lot of flash so that the lure can allow the fish to hone in on it.
Details:what has better action, catch more bass etc.
A:The Slug-go is a true jerk bait and works best with a twitch and pause technique. The Senko is a drop bait that is best used by letting the lure just flutter down naturally after it lands on the water. With both lures it is best to use on a semi-slack line. Watch the line for a tell-tale tick or move to the right or left. Then reel up the slack and set the hook firmly.
A:If could take only one bait fishing ...give me a bag of Slugos!
I fish them with just a light off-set hook, no rigging of any kind is needed. And the lighter the line the better the action. I use the 3 and 4 inch for bass and the 3" for trout.
I've had the best luck with the rainbow,
white and black. (When you can find the black.)
Cast them out and let them sink slowly, then retreive with light taps and let them fall again. They look just like a dying bait fish and bass will kill them!
I have found that they out perform any and all other soft jerk baits and most worms.
A:let me just start off sayin that they are both great baits in my tackle box. but, just gotta tell u that the senko is not a jerk bait. u do not jerk it while reeling in. this bait is meant to be fished slow. u let it fall slowly to the bottom. then lift up slowly and let it drop back down. great bait. senko is a jerk bait and has pretty good action. but, do not buy the 3 inch ones, i made that mistake. they are too small to even texas rig.

A:I would have to say that the Slug-go has better action. The cut top design allows it to dart wildly about. I also want to point out here, that the Senko had a terrible time staying on my hook. I had an easier time using the Slug-go. This is not to say that the Senko is bad. I still caught fish with it. Just not as many. I was using either Stren 65lb braid or 30lb braid with it.
I'm probably going to try it with fluorocarbon as well to see if I can enhance the action. I hope this helps.
Details:What is the best hook size and style for this bait in the 6" variety?
A:3/0 - 5/0 worm hook, depending on shank length. You want the hook point coming up through the first notch in the slug. Be sure to bury the eye, knot, and crimp if on wire in the slug if you are fishing in weed. May mean a smaller, wider gape hook for wire traces.

A:At Lunker City they also have the Texposer hook that works well. (there's a chart there of recommended hook sizes for different lengths of slugos)
A:use a 2 or 3 hook both work well. the style that will let the bait last a long time is something with a twist lock oor Mustas ultra point Impacy keeper hooks

A:Slug-Go makes a 4/0 & 5/0 for this. If you check their website, you will see it. The packaging also has the proper hook to use. According to that, a 5/0 is also a great hook to use on this. Right now, since I am out of the Slug-Go hooks, I am using a Gamakatsu 5/0 & the bait works very similar. I would recommend using the Slug-Go version first though. It works the best.
