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!

So far, they totally ignore anything that doesn't wiggle naturally. No shiny junk for them  I am personally responsible for the breeding of smart bass in my little pond. They keep me entertained in exchange for me occasionally supplying them with gourmet dinner. In return, I release them back into the pond to breed more.

Maybe you need to slap those pond fish upside their heads with some wacky worms! Have you tried Keitech swimbaits .They work good around here but you know your water better than me,

Lowly canada worm. My pond fish will not hit artificial lures.

Well, I haven't been fishing for years, but I relapsed. This bass was 16" I hope I got the picture loaded.
