    I thought I would be interesting to see among you bass fishermen, what worm you feel would give you best results if that is the only brand of worm you could use for an entire year. This is not one of the questions that your answer depends on the time of year...so no switching back and forth.
    There are tons of other worms out there so please just keep your answers to either Senkos or Roboworms. (Thanks) :)

    So....If you had choose and could ONLY PICK ONE of these worms to fish with the entire 2022,
    which would you pick?.................................and reasons why.

    SENKOS or ROBOWORMS?

    Basically.....what could be your cup of tea?

    Senko

    OR
    Roboworm

    Thanks to all who participate
    and remember you can only pick one.

    I don't consider myself a bass angler, but I've caught more bass on a senko than robo. Not much, like a dozen bass. Senko is my answer.

    My only decent, recent bass was on a robo. Pretty sure he ate it because it had your scent on it, since it was one of the ones you gave me.m and no, VinnyBass , I haven't forgotten...

    Hey Vinnie,
    I only use robo worms for drop shot so I would have to go with Sinkos. Obviously I won't be fishing for awhile.

    Yeah...I am glad you are Ok. It still sucks about what happened to the boat.
    Anyway...We will see what you use when we fish at Murray. :)

    I think I would have to chose the roboworm. Dropshot is my go-to bait for San Diego lakes. Senkos have done well for me, but I don’t enjoy using it as much.

    Reins is my actual choice but since you limited it to those to its Roboworm for me in a landslide. I barely use Senkos as-is so it's not much of a choice for me

    You said pick one..ok, robos! But if it's a shallow lake, brush and stick ups, then Senkos! But if it's a windy day, then Robos! But, if it's a deep lake, with trees out deep, but brush up tight..it would be Senkos up tight, dropshot Robos out deep! But then a lake with lots of rock, start with Senkos, end with Robos...unless the wind doesn't come up, back to Senkos. Or at San V..throw everything in my boat! Did I pick just one......

    Robo worm if the choice includes all lengths and colors made, which from the displays you made , Vinny, it looks like it does. If the choice is one size robo ,or one size senko that would be tough.

    Reason why robo , the colors, Drop, Shot T-rig, fly line robo worm, skunk busting.
    It's just more versatile. Even makes a decent jerkbait.

    Actually there was three police cars and police questioning some crazy guy who was threatening people so I wasn’t the center of attention.

    I have had better overall success with Robos on drop shot compared to Senkos rigged otherwise. But Senkos will work on a dropshot too, especially Slim Senkos. Robos have better pricing. I will go with Robos but could make Senkos work about as well too.

    What's next, are we going to have to pick just one color and one size next? Do you realize that if you had to stick to only one bait in one size and one color, your expenditures at TW would go way down? Is that your plan? If so, can we have a cut of the savings?

    Heck....TW and me are buds....when I need something, they are always there for me....ha ha
    I also like the skinny senkos to use on a drop shot and regular senkos for everything else.

    Have to say I like TW too, just not a red carpet customer like yourself.

    FYI, I have caught lots of bass on 2" Senkos. Got several bags of them on closeout when they were discontinued. Even got an 8.9 lb. bass at Barrett on a 2" Senko on a dropshot, that's finesse fishing. But you can cut a 4" slim Senko in half and it is about the same diameter as a 2" Senko.

    Have never gotten a bad bait from Gary Yamamoto. His stuff is pricier but it does work. Fat Ikas are awesome too, love the way they fall away from the rod when rigged backwards. They are like the Flying Lure but catch way more fish. I even use them in the bay to fish bridges and dock pilings. Awesome the way the bait will bump into vertical structure on the way down.

    Damn, I love fishing.

    I have no place in this matter since my quest for an LMB is still proving rather difficult.
