Caught By

5/10/2013 2:05:36 PM

On the left, a 1+ lb bass caught on the Senko. On the right, a 5.59 lb bass caught on the Power Worm. Do "big baits" catch bigger fish? You be the judge. @bucketmouth landed his 9.59 on the BPW also.

      @greatness627 nice. The wacky rigged senko never fails. I always catch lots of good sized bass with senkos.
    12. greatness627 0
      Use whatever you feel confident with. That's very important. If you're not feeling it, go with what you've been slammin' em with!!! @felps2016
    13. felps2016 0
      That's cool the majority of the fish I catch on senkos I use a 5/0 wacky rigged ill give the 2/0 a shot next time I go!
    14. greatness627 0
      @felps2016 Wacky rigged...ALWAYS. 2/0 worm hook, weightless. Spray the Jacks Juice Garlic Oil before and during.

      Hello, Alex. Hope you weren't affected by those nasty storms in your area yesterday? @alexlaneri
    31. greatness627 0
      As soon as I find the right trailer hooks, I'll post a pic. @rogerdale257 Good luck with them worms. May require a little more patience, but my buddy is living ...more proof of catching bigger fish.
    32. greatness627 0
      Absolutely, looked for trailer hooks last night but no luck. Academy's down here had the 12" power worms on clearance for $2.99 Regular price at Bass Pro ...more is like $6.99. We hit up very store! Lol @rogerdale257
    33. Roger Connolly 0
      Absolutely. I'm looking forward to using them. 5/0, I need to buy some bigger hooks, lol. Once you get the trailer hook on, can you post a pic of how you put ...more it on there?
    34. greatness627 0
      Trailer hook may mean more hooksets of smaller fish, but it's all about experimentation and optimizing tactics. 👍@rogerdale257
    35. greatness627 0
      We're actually gonna add a trailer hook and see if that increases hooksets. My buddy had a fish almost jerk the rod out of his hands this past Thursday. Grabbed ...more nothing but worm maybe? @rogerdale257
    36. greatness627 0
      Nice!!!!!! Check out my buddy's blerts. @BucketMouth He's been slaughtering the bigguns with those worms!!! 5/0 worm hook with a 1/4 oz bullet weight, Texas ...more rigged. @rogerdale257
    37. Roger Connolly 0
      Picked up some Berkeley Power Worms today. I'm going to try them out the next couple days.

      Those things are deadly, bro!! Cast, let it hit the bottom, twitch twitch, set the hook baby!!!!!! 👍
    40. Roger Connolly 0
      Me too, I love them. Also watermelon and black flake and green pumpkin and black flake, I believe.
    41. greatness627 0
      I love the Yamasenkos in Grn pumpkin/watermelon. @rogerdale257
    42. greatness627 0
      That's the only way I fish mine as well. I just buy the tool at Bass Pro. It comes with like 15 and they sell bags of 25 o-rings for like under $3 if I'm ...more not mistaken. @rogerdale257
    43. Roger Connolly 0
      Apparently I need to use the O-ring trick as well. I like to wacky rig senkos a lot, and the larger bass throw them every time. Where do you get your o-rings and ...more what size?
    44. greatness627 0
      The worm slides right out at times. Lol. @rogerdale257
    45. greatness627 0
      If not mistaken, that's exactly what my buddy uses. Jacks is really oily and it stays on my baits really well. But it has cost me more senkos when fish jump ...more cause I use the o ring trick. @rogerdale257
    46. Roger Connolly 0
      I use BANG brand garlic spray. Any idea how it compares?
    47. greatness627 0
      ...my buddy @BucketMouth turned me on to that stuff. We use it religiously on EVERY bait we cast, before and during. I don't even remember the last time I fished ...more without it. You can get it at Bass Pro
    48. greatness627 0
      @rogerdale257 Hey bro, just saw your message. My notifications act up sometimes or I'm waiting too long to view em and they fall off my main screen. Anyway, ...more Jack's Juice in garlic oil...

    77. greatness627 0
      Sounds like one of them great battles where the hooked fish actually reels you in to him before he eventually tires out. I need to add some of them lures to my arsenal. ...more Thanks for the advice. 👍@TxRvrAdv
    78. TxRvrAdv 0
      It was a battle to keep that hook from straitening @greatness627 some times when the bite is real slow I will pick up my spinning reel and throw a b. spin. I've ...more almost always had good luck with them

      @TxRvrAdv that's crazy!! A month ago I wouldn't of known what a B.S. was, since I'm fairly new to bass fishing. Fished with @MulletHead in Houston a ...more few weeks ago and that's what he was using.

      @lukeface Green pumpkin has been on fire at Lake Dunlap. We're hoping to fish some of your area lakes soon...they've been producing some really nice fish.
    101. Lukeface 0
      Black and green pumpkin seem to be the best for me, but I'm usually fishing at night. Watermelon green has produced also.
    102. greatness627 0
      @bassslayer420 my PB is 5.40 That's my buddy @BucketMouth holding up the biggest fish from Lake Dunlap yesterday.
    103. greatness627 0
      @lukeface Thx for the tip. My buddy and I are experimenting with different baits and methods of fishing...the power worm has definitely put more pounds on the boat.
    104. Jackie Ricks 0
      Nice fish that's your pb right? @greatness
    105. Lukeface 0
      Love the power worm!! I've caught plenty of 5+ on the 7" but have changed to 10" and have for sure seen a change in bigger fish. Try it on a dropshot! ...more Deadly.

      @greatness627 I was going to say! I can't imagine fishing through a morning full of hail and lighting storms. Haha I lived on Dunlap a few years back. Nice fish!
