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 

Nice. Yum Dingers are Senko knock offs as well.

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

"SS" Have not seen them for a while:)

7" worm on a 1 oz jig head (aka "jig worm") has been my go to bait for decades.

White, yellow, Chartreuse, Bubble Gum, Tomato, all work well for me.

Brands don't matter, bulk bought or name brand both work.

I've used the largest senkos with a weighted swimbait hook in calm water or slow current around bridges. Cast it out let it fall, slowly lift up on the rod, reel in the slack, repeat. Nailed them on this. Most hits were on the fall. As previously stated, they are expensive and rip apart easy. I like the swimbait hooks with the screw spring thing to attach the bait. Stout hooks really do a number on them before you can even cast them out.

I caught a 76 pounder on a Garry Kumanato worm wacky rigged.  Best ****ing hook set of my life! 

 

76 lbs? That’s a hell of a fish on any bait

Yes, The late Tim Coleman used Berkeley Power Worms and 1/2 ounce Andrus jig heads.  I copied his technique and have used them with great success.

Berkley power worms are a great product
