For years we've preached that if you're going to throw a stickbait it had better be a senko. The market is beginning to change however as more and more companies step up with niche baits that are very effective. In this video Matt lays out 3 senko alternatives that are worth checking out.
Day in and day out, the senko is still #1 in our book. We're not arguing its effectiveness or its consistency. But the next time your fish move shallow, get pressured, or you need a bit of scent to help seal the deal, you need to try one of these alternatives.
The products used in this video are as follows:
Yamamoto Senko: Day in and day out, this bait is deadly on bass of all sizes!
Gambler Fat Ace: Looking to save a buck and get the added benefit of garlic scent? The Gambler is a fish catching machine!
Jackall Flick Shake: When a slow fall is key, the flick shake consistently outperforms the senko. The bait sinks incredibly slowly when mated with a lightweight wacky rigged hook.
Reaction Innovations Pocket Rocket: When the fish are on a wacky rig bite, this bait stands out from the crowd. With unique detailing,a medium fall, and outrageous action the pocket rocket is in a league of its own.
