    How many of you add rattles to your Senkos?

    Where do you insert them in the worm? What's your technique?

    What size rattle for a 5" worm?

    I want to try it for night fishing to get the attention of bass in the darker conditions.

    I just add a glass bead under my tungsten when I want a little more noise.

    Under the hook, basically the middle of the senko?

    I'm confused where to insert it, some articles say between the hook point and hook eye, others below the hook (assuming that's what you're doing), and some even say in the tail. What size glass bead for senkos?

    I'm talking about t-rigging for flipping . Are you talking about flylining?

    I'm talking about T-rigging or wacky. Insert rattle in the head (between eye hook and point), middle (below hook), or tail of the worm? I'm unsure of the optimal placement.

    T-rig I would use a glass bead like swings said wacky I would say pick a side depending on brand of bait prolly the meaty end it should not effect action that much and at night prolly won't matter much.
