    anyone else fishing them? bought a large bag at the *****house (TWH) thinking I would save a few bucks. they are no Senko IMO. Fishing LNL yesterday, got (4) bites, and missed all (4) fish. 3 came up jumping and threw the hook which is very strange, as I rarely miss fish on a senko. Not sure if they were not eating it, or the plastic does not have as much salt, so its denser for hook sets. but they do have a little shimmy, they did get bit, if in a tourney, would spend the exra bucks and just use the OG stick bait.

    Another example of the love/Hate relationship most of us have with Senkos.

    Most of those stick baits will get bit. As to missing fish, check your hooks for sharpness.

    Try those next. Hit lnl for an hour one bite. The type you feel solid tick, lift up slowly swimming off the bank slowly with heavy weight Swing, got her for a split second and pulled off. 3/0 gammie ewg and all. Maybe it’s me

    Hit them right away! The first tick is them sucking the whole thing into their mouth! You are running the hook all the way through the bait and then skin-hooking the point, right?
