Wacky weightless, and I am not talking about the crazy skinny dude that lives down the road. I am talking about the Gary Yamamoto  Senko, a stellar soft stick bait.The Senko ca be rigged many different styles but my preference is a four inch weightless wacky. Is there an easier way to rig a bait.  The thick body and dense plastic give this a bait a perfect balanced weight, which makes for easy casting and the bait sinks quite fast.Lets put this bad boy to the test.
In the video I make a simple back hand cast and before the Senko hits bottom WHAMMO, as Cookster would say "FISH ON".Lets try another cast to see what happens.
A simple bait that will land you some decent bass. I had the opportunity to talk to Gary Yamamoto about his baits.Gary told me that the key to weightless wacky is the horizontal fall, as soon as you add a weight, that smooth descending free fall no longer exists. Gary's preference is a Texas Rig, but he also likes wacky as long as its weightless. If anybody knows how to rig a Senko, it would be Gary.I prefer the four inch over the five inch. I like the size, weight and the fact that it is easy to control.A few Senko BassIf your looking for the perfect soft stick bait, then look no further. The Senko is a thing of beauty, it'll have jaw dropping Bass in a frenzy before it hits bottom.
