Reverse Rigging for Senkos and Other Stick Worms

OK, guys... a number of members have asked about the reverse rigging for Senkos, Yum Dingers and similar style worms we used to fish on top of heavy algae and weed mats to get those explosive, blow-up strikes from quality bass during late summer. So, here are a few pics to show this simple adaption...just run the 'tapered' end of the worm in on the front of the off-set worm hook so it can glide over top of the slop easier than the blunt end.



Fish it on 20 to 30 lb Sonic Braid...work it like a scum-frog and inch it along on top of the There is still lots of hot weather bassing to do all over the map, so give it a shot at your local, weedy lake!

Comment by Mark Sleeper on July 26, 2016 at 9:10pm

they varied in size the biggest ones were 3 pound size

Comment by Allen Morgan on July 26, 2016 at 6:42pm

Gary, I'm going to warn you now!  Once you get a taste of Smallies fighting in current, you'll become addicted very quickly!  I've been chasing stream Smallies off-and-on since May, and I can quickly see that becoming my M.O.

Shame on you  LOL!

Comment by Gary Boysen on July 26, 2016 at 7:33am
I never fish in rivers. Not that I don't want to, it's just that I never really have done that and I am not experienced at river fishing. My only spot on the river in the past 10 years has been the Passaic River by twin bridges in Fairfield. Come to think of it, I don't think I have ever caught a smallmouth bass.
