3” Senkos work amazing for a worm hatch, especially the watermelon flake colors

I've been using ribbontail worms from the various bait companies for a long time to target Stripers. I've mentioned it before on SOL. My favorite is the Culprit Fat Max, which they make in many colors, and in 6", 7" & 9" lengths. :howdy:

I've used the largest Yamamoto Senko worms ( 6/7") in black or blue for stripers and done really well with them. I rig them like a double hook Slug-go but with smaller hooks and with smaller weights. The only problem is these worms are expensive and that they rip apart easily. One bait = one fish.

Snook, Reds, Spotted Seatrout and Flounder on ZMan Ned Rigs,using TRD's and the 4" TRD's.

Dang!  I thought I "discovered" that. 

 

Look at Z-Man's Trout Tricks.  They're just a worm.  (Buoyancy of Z-man's plastic holds them up while the jig head is on the bottom.  Very effective.)

I have had some success with the 7" and 9 " Slug-go SS which I believe are more commonly used in freshwater fishing.

DZ, that is a nice setup - I imagine this at night during a sand eel bite to be lethal. What weight is pictured here?  Just curious.

3/4 oz worm head thru wired.  I generally use the largest senkos  available which is 7”.  Bass pro makes knockoffs called stick-o’s which are more economical
