Another vote for senkos wacky style in purple or green.

Do you guys use the O-ring trick? Learned it from a fishing guide. You slide a rubber o-ring to the middle of the worm with an applicator. You get a lot more fish per senko (which is nice, those senkos get pricey).

I fish a lot of TX rigged Senkos, been tearing them up lately on baby bass color fished weightless. But they are the most fragile rubber worms I’ve ever seen. I’ve tried about 3 different brands and they all suck in the durability dept.

I caught 19 Saturday morning fishing a Texas rigged weightless Senko through grass beds in 7' of water on a big flat just off a channel bend. Only one good one, about 5 pounds.

They will catch bass. When I first moved to the Snake It was easy and a convince to catch bass some evening on every cast on a Blue Fox Spinner...... But now I'm bearing down and that Spinner will not on a daily basis catch as big of bass I'm catching now.

If I could have only one lure to catch a bass?
Your Sinko is a great lure but it's only effective in the top tier of the water column.
I would go with the 10" Power worm that I could rig to fish the top, swim it in the middle and especially the bottom in cover; Like brush Piles.

Senko's are great on a Carolina rig or finesse rigged several different ways and fished on the bottom.

Bass season opened yesterday here. Went out yesterday afternoon. Caught 5 nice ones and 3 dinks in an hour and a half. All on a wacky rigged 5" watermelon Senko.

How does “bass season” work? Can’t catch them any other time? Can’t keep them any other time but can C&R?

Honestly curious. We don’t have fishing “season” here, just go whenever you want same limit all the time.

If they're not in season it's catch and release only. Went a couple times in the last two weeks and caught some nice ones but it pains me to have to put a good one back so don't fish much till open season.

Yep. Must suck to live where there is a season on freshwater fish.

There are fish with no season on them that can be taken all year inluding all varieties of sunfish, yellow perch, black and white crappie, rock bass, pickerel, bullheads, suckers and carp. More popular game fish are generally protected during the spawn but there is something to fish for all year round if you are so inclined. I generally only fish spring and summer anyway and hunt sept. - March. To me it would suck a bunch to live in a state where you have to own land or pay for a lease to hunt. Or where it's 90+ degrees in the shade for weeks or months on end.
