    Anyone wacky rig their worms? I've only used a Texas and Carloina rig, but I saw a fishing show where the guy was using senko worms by hooking in the middle.

    Going to try it tomorrow. Anyone had any luck with it?

    i sometimes do. its a great way to attract bass. the worm resembles an injured bait fish.

    Sometimes its better to throw them on a spinning reel, because if the worm flies off in midcast on a baitcaster it means birds nest

    It is especially good in a high-pressured fishing area. I love using the green/white laminate Senko, hook it through the egg ring with no weight. First cast I ever took with this setup I caught a 4lb. 8oz!!!:smile2:

    Senkos are a great fish catching bait. You can wacky rig through the egg sak or another way that works great is to take an o-ring (metal or rubber) and slide the worm through the o-ring to the center ofthe sack, then hook your hook through the o-ring only.The hook never punctures the worm. No damage to the plastic and can not be thrown off. This is the same o-ring as used on the fronts of crankbaits. Purchase the size that fits your senkos. Good Fishing

    Around New Year 2004-2005 I caught my biggest LMB ever, 4.8 lbs, on a yellow wacky worm. We were in Orlando Florida and I was fishing a retention pond at the back of a subdivision. There was a lot of fuzzy mossy weeds in the water.
