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!

Allen-Got a small Bass last night on the Middle sized (3/8 OZ.?) Black Jitterbug . Got two small Bass on the flyrod with poppers too. Not a great night but fun nevertheless.

One of these days I'm going to have to go out at night and try my Black jitterbug blind casting, and listen for the explosion :)

No Gary ,I have never fished Merril Creek Reservoir!

Great Bass there Gary . Congratulations pal! My biggest Bass that I weighed came in late June years ago on a Sluggo fishing in Waywayanda .Still carry the pic in my wallet. A 21.5 " 5,1/2 lb. Bass .Another hog I have a pic of but no weight and length is this one caught in Cupsaw Lake in July in 2009 .What a year for Bass and Pickerel that was! I believe this one pictured is my PB but no proof of it's weight and size . It took a Hula Popper .

   As to the Buzzbait I haven't even tried it yet . These are the months for trolling deep cranks for Bass when fishing in the daytime as well as the techniques you mentioned .  but in the dark some great fish can be caught at night .The Black Jitterbug being the obvious classic Lure .

John, I've tried buzzbaits, but have not caught anything with them yet. With the hot weather hitting now, I think deep crankbaits, heavy jigs and dropshotting will be needed to get down to the deeper, cooler water for the big bass. I was out on Aeroflex yesterday for about 6 hours from dawn to noon and didn't catch anything. The front had come through, so the bass were a little finicky. I just couldn't figure them out. The windy gusts didn't help. Even with a drift sock and anchor I was getting pushed all over the lake. Depending on the weather, I'll be hitting Merrill Creek Reservoir on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Never fished there before. Have you?

This has been an outstanding week of bass fishing on the yak. June has been very good to me. Gotta hope July continues to be productive. My personal best was beaten consecutively within a week. From 16 inches to 17 inches to a big fat female bass at 19 inches. Wish I had a scale to weigh her. I'm guessing 3 to 4 pounds. I have a scale now, so going forward I will know length and weight.

Anyone  Buzzbaiting Bass ? I think it's about time I try that again .Never did catch a Bass on a Buzzbait but I've given them a chance only a few times long ago.
