    Hybrid lure design (modifying or redesigning lures) is an obsession and last week this one proved itself in my pond for panfish and bass. The design in a smaller size should catch fish under a float with a light chop on the water.

    Note: the centers were cut from from old disc (Ring) worms because the center of the worm is very thin.




    What surprised me was the Senko-like action as it sank to the bottom with tips quivering. Fish hit the lure near the surface in 7 FOW down about a foot and at mid depth with rod twitches & pause retrieve. No one I know use a jig at the center of a Senko but with this design a 1/16 oz ball head jig was the ticket for best action when the lure was dropped or paused mid depth.

    OMG that shiver running back and forth from end-to-end! Lethal! Does it do that underwater with added resistance?

    For sure! The tip & body wobble is the same as that of a 5" Senko except that the smaller lure must have a jig stuck in the middle to increase the lure's descent which is accomplished by whatever the Senko is made of to give it weight.
