    To keep your bait from sliding Down , wrap the top 1/4" of the worm hook shank with dental floss, apply super glue to the floss, slide worm on hook over the floss into place.
    You'll be amazed how it holds, works well for drop shots, senkos.
    works very well for plastic swim baits, if they roll on the hook, it changes the swimming action.

    Similar idea is to tie a bobber stop knot on the hook shank with mono or braid and add a drop of nail polish. Makes a nice keeper for straight shank or jig heads.

    So do you treat the hook with dental floss and glue ahead of time or when hooking the worm?

    You put on the dental floss, two or three layers, then the glue, then slide the worm up the shank, and let dry. Once dry rig the rest of the worm thru the hook.your going to need to adjust the worm if theres a flat side.

    I have used electrical shrink sleeving, cut both ends at a 45 degree angle slide on shank and melt with a lighter, it's like the rebar hook, but it doesn't hold as well as dental floss ,super glue

    Another way is to use CPS spring bait keeper before insert ewg or rebarb hook. Using glue work but no matter what Senko is not gonna last long especially when you catch those small, jumping ones. It would get torn up in half by the hook point.

    What lasts by far the longest is fishing Senkos wacky style and using the O-rings. There are several tools and rings now to do that. And if the middle of the worm starts to get beat up, just slide the O-ring off center a bit.

    I use a EWG hook on all my senkos. The bend prevents it from slipping, at least in my experience. Perhaps you could use a different hook and skip the glue?

    For the 0 rings I use 1 size smaller hook(1/0) and run the hook all the way past the ring. The worm slides up the line unharmed, every time. I get 20 fish on one Tiki Worm( my favorite Senko style Worm) Eventually the worm will inexplicably disappear. Still better than going thru 10 packs a day.
