Yamamoto Senko - $4.99 to $7.69

If there's been one lure that has changed the face of fishing over the years, it's the Yamamoto Senko. With its wide range of uses and subtle natural action, the Yamamoto Senko has quickly become a favorite with anglers all over the world. The beauty of the Senko is in it's simplicity. The Yamamoto Senko may just look like a thick round plastic worm but the fall rate created from the large amount of salt impregnated in the body drives fish mad. When rigged weightless the Yamamoto Senko falls horizontally with a seductive side to side tail action. Try wacky rigging or texas rigging the Yamamoto Senko and experience the versatility and effectiveness it provides.

Comments: Great worm but not durable. Fortunate to get one fish per worm. I really believe Yamamoto is intentionally making these softer so that you will have to buy more for $0.75 a piece. I pretty much only buy two colors I can't get anywhere else - 912 and 925. They need to make a new worm called the senko Duralast!

From: Mark: Conyers, GA 9/25/14

Comments: AWESOME! let me spell it out for you. A W E S O M E !This lure is amazing. first cast BOOM! I fist thought the thing I caught was a weed but it was a bass.

From: Max: FL 9/14/14

Comments: I use 3/0 EWG hooks for the 4" and 4/0 EWG hooks for the 5". Always texas-rigged. Let it fall on slack line, work it slow, and keep your eyes on your line. If you are fishing it right, you won't be able to feel the bite on your rod until you've reeled up the slack.

From: Kevin: NJ 7/28/14

Comments: These are my favorite senko worms to use hands down. They straight up produce strikes when no other worm will. My only complaint is the durability of the bait. 1-2 fish on it and it's done.

From: Trip: Simpsonville, SC 7/16/14

Comments: I must admit I have bought these worms several times but never could bring myself to use them. I finally decided to this past weekend and wow I cleaned house with them. Its now my dirty little secret. I will be stocking up on these for sure.

From: Brian: Akron, OH 7/5/14

Comments: No other stick-bait will ever out perform the Senko. When nothing else works in my arsenal these always prevail. Green pumpkin with any color flake seems to do justice for me. Definitely worth the money.

From: Juskivel: Delta, CA 3/29/14

Comments: This is just such a good bait. It is worth the cost because they catch so many fish. I fished this along side a yum dinger and this caught fish when the dinger failed. I noticed that the yum dinger had lighter green pumpkin color than the Yamamoto senko that was a little darker which made a huge difference in the lake that I was fishing.

From: Mike: Northern IL

Comments: This bait catches fish no arguing that but it costs way to much for so little when there are cheaper options that are the same or might even catch more fish!!!! Like the big bite baits trick stick they are amazingly better than these. do yourself a favor buy these and see that in a pack of 10 you'll catch 5 fish and on a trick stick a pack of 10 will catch you 25 fish

From: Luc: sharon pa

Comments: Believe these reviews! I am generally super-wary of any hype, but I can't believe the difference the Senko has made in my action rate. I go thru a bag per trip easy, and that's way more from fish than basic wear and tear. I wish I had a dollar for every time I used another brand, got nothing, then threw the Senko right in the exact same places and yarded out nice bass. The 4" straight worm gave me my personal best this summer - a 12lb bass that was my only touch of the night.

From: Eric: Charleston, SC

Comments: AMAZING! I grew up with the senko it is the bait that got me into fishing. its so easy and it works so well! i have caught bass off of this bait all year around. I always have one rod hooked up with it. I rig it texas rigged but with no weight in my opinion its effective in water 12 feet and below. i have caught bass in less than 2 foot off of this bait

From: Jacob: Virginia, USA

Comments: Durability solved! Forget the O-rings and find yourself a clear milkshake straw.  Cut about a 1/4" off it. Slit it open then wrap it around the center of the worm for wacky rigging.  Now hook through the straw and the worm.  And its invisible.  You'll get 5 times the fish per worm, if not more.  These are the real deal, Thanks Gary!

From: WildBill: Cortland, NY

Comments: the best summertime bait there is. when the bite is on, its on with garys. You will have 20 fish days and most definitely will run into a lunker or two when fishing these right off the banks.. tackle warehouse also carries the elusive, and by far my go to, motoroil red flake.

From: Mike: Mass

Comments: Everybody knows that these things aren't all that durbale... but they do have an awsome action texas or wacky rigged, and i feel that they have a slightly faster sink rate then the other soft stick baits.All in all a awesome fish cathing bait. Cant go wrong with using one of these.

From: Mike: NJ

Comments: For those wacky rigging you MUST use an O-ring. With the O-rings these things will last for ever. And a someone else pointed out try Mend it to make last longer. So with that said please no more rubbish about how expensive they are. These things flat out catch fish! Also here's a tip for the O-rings, you don't need to buy the tool. Take a small needle nose plier and load the O-ring on it. Once you do, slightly open the plier to create enough room to pull the senko thru.

From: Armando, NJ

Comments: Theese are the best senko, and there is no doubt in my mind about it. theese are great for wacky riggin but theese tear easily so the o rings are a great idea for theese senkos. but if you are goin to texas rig i dont reccomend theese senkos i usually use dingers for texas riggin

From: Mack: Canada

Comments: There are mucher cheaper baits out there than this, and mre durable too. With this bait you'll be lucky to get 2 fish over a pound before it rips off. This lure is a fish catching machine dont get me wrong, but you may as well toss some butter on your hook and use that. An the price is ridiculous, i can go out and buy fish for cheaper.

From: Josh: Canada

Comments: there just isn't anything like a senko. people will try to convince you to getting a bunch of other cheap baits that look and feel like a senko but just dont get the same reaction. The best thing about these baits is the way they fall; and when you're flippin and punchin thats what matters. ask anyone and they'll tell you. Senkos will catch fish

From: Jeremy: Silicon Valley, CA

Comments: Absolutely the best stick bait on the PLANET!!! I've tried the others that claim they out fish SENKO and they don't,PERIOD!!!!!There are a couple that are close to SENKO but that's it,just close..This is the GO-TO bait for most every fisherman. Keep one tied on at all times.

From: Tony: West Chester, PA

Comments: Let it never be said that these things don't catch. Learn to texas rig them with a 4/0 EWG hook and no weight and you're good to go. Perfect bait for just about any condition and for every level of fishing experience, especially beginners. Though you can get them in damn near any color under the sun, you'll probably settle on a few. If you're looking to try them out for the first time, I'd recommend three colors: Black/Blue Flake for dirty water or low light conditions, Baby Bass for super clear and/or sunny days, and Green Pumpkin/Black Flake for everything in between. You won't be disappointed! Throw them near or right into cover for best results

From: Mark: South Michigan

Comments: You can't beat a 4" black senko for catching smallies. These are not durable, but like the man said, I'd rather have 5 smallmouth in my livewell than 5 senko's in their bag.

From: Greg: AL

Comments: what has not been already said about the senko? they just flat-out catch fish. wacky, dropshot, T-rigged, carolina rig. anything you think of, the senko does it. its just the most versatile, fish-catching bait i have ever used. if you have not used senkos yet, you owe it to yourself to get a pack or ten.

From: Cullen: Ashburn, VA

Comments: The water was pretty cold so I got the 3 in. version in cinnamon brown color...WOW.I used a weedless Gamy spit/drop shot hook(in my mind the best wacky hook ever) wacky riged it and threw it out weightless. I probebly got 20 strikes and missed most of them until I learned when to set the hook. You got set the hook IF YOU FEEL ANYTHING! As the McDonald's logo says..."I'm lovin' it!" God bless!

From: Elijah: Mystic, CT

Comments: I bought this in a 5 inch baby bass color and took it out on a trip to a local lake that i fish often but don't normally catch any. About ten minutes in i caught a good 3 pounder. This bait is good for pros as well as beginners. I rig it on a 2/0 gamakatsu offset round bend hook weightless with bang scent and it works great. My little brother of 6 years old even cathches em on these things. the action when it falls is awesome and really catches fish. Even though they are a little bit pricey, its what gets the fish in the boat. I cant wait to fish these in a tournament. Tight lines.

From: Dennis: Orange County, CA 

Comments: This bait is phenomenal. It is good for pros as well as beginners. I put my buddy on one of these senkos, taught him how to fish them wacky style and now he catches big ones left and right. The best thing you can do is go out and buy a couple of Owner, 2/0 hooks, that are no bigger than your thumb. Rig it whaky style and i can promise you, youll be ripping them out left and right. If that dosent work for you then nothnig will. Caught my biggest bass(8lb.) off of this!! Watermelon Magic will work wonders!

From: Grant: SC

Comments: The Senko is the greatest lure ever.I've won thousands using them.It consistantly outfishes all my other lures combined.I keep one tied on at all times.It can be used  in any water condition or color.I see where others complain about breakage,but what the hell nothing can compare to itCatch 1 or 2 then pop another on.I've tried Wave worm,Yum dinger,Hyper stick and all the others,they just don't catch fish like the Senko does,Period....

From: Tony: West Chester, PA

Comments: Ive used the 5in, 4in and 3in senko wacky or texas rigged all catch fish.  Although it breaks easily u can still catch about two fish one the same worm.  So far the 5in caught me my biggest fish of the summer.  Also great for smallmouth is the 4in senko.

From: Kenny: Philadelphia, PA

Comments: Very new to bass fishing, pretty much only been fishing since about May 2012 and have been trying a little bit of everything from jigs to spinnerbaits and crankbaits and nothing has given me the kind of success in a single day that a wacky rigged Bama bug senko has. Caught 9 bass in about two hours including a couple 2 lbers and a nice 3lber which is about as big as the fish get in my pond.

From: Alex: O'Fallon, MO

Comments: Glad someone else noticed!! These Senkos do catch Bass, but are not durable at all. Wave carries a cheaper, much more durable brand..These are so soft,they will break when you cast them..At $5.99 a pack, Mr. Gary needs to refine his product,and make it more durable..Wave hands down is the better product..Senkos are my Go To bait..But i vowed to never buy these again..Luckily,my local bait and tackle carries wave!!
