I like the original Senko but this "fat" Senko worm is awesome. The most effective way (I found) to rig them is a weightless Texas rig. The weight and shape of the worm makes casting easy, it falls/sinks more naturally and it skips much better than the (smaller) original, as well. And on pressured waters, b/c of the unusual profile, it will get you bit on a more consistent basis. I've casted both, original and the Tiki-Bamboo Stick (worm), and by far the Tiki worm gave me way more success! And when people ask me what lure gave me all this success I just respond, "oh...just throw'n a Senko." I'm not lying am I!?
