There we are. There we go. There we go. Comehere. I just want to show your face. C’mon. You got a face full of Senko buddy. Look atthat. He’s got a mouth full of Senko. Weightless Senko that’s what we’re talkingabout today. Not a huge fish but, where doyou think the huge fish come? Let’s talk aboutit, weightless Senko’s. Hey, folks, Glenn May here with BassResource. com. Today I wanna talk to you about fishing aweightless Senko. This is what we’re talkingabout right here. Weightless Senko. Now, ifyou’re not sure how to rig it this way, I’vegot a video on that that’s linked underneaththis video, that shows you how to rig it thisway, but basically I want to take you throughthe gear that we use, and then how to fishit. To start with I got a 3/0 hook. This is afive-inch Senko, so we are using the 3/0 hookon it. It’s an extra wide gap hook. It’s notany special kind of hook. It’s not a flippinghook or a superline hook, it’s just your standardwired thickness hook, and it’s also obviouslynot a finesse hook, so not a real thin wirehook either. It’s just a standard hook size. And I have that paired with 15lb fluorocarbonline. And there’s a distinct reason why Iuse fluorocarbon line, not monofilament, copolymer,or braid. Fluorocarbon, it’ll sink a little bit. Andthat sink rate, it won’t inhibit this lureas it falls. You want it to fall straightdown, and it kinda undulates as it falls. So this line is not gonna impede that action,it’s gonna fall with it. If I’m using braid,braid has a tendency to be buoyant, and sometimes,you may have this happen to you using braidor monofilament, or copolymer line, you throwit out there, and the bait will do this, itwill actually float away from you at an angle,or it’ll fall at an angle. You’ve probablyseen this a time or two. And that’s becausethose lines are a little bit more buoyantthan fluorocarbon. So when I use fluorocarbonthat’s the reason why. I don’t want to impedethe action or change the action of the bait. That’s the exact reason why. Fluorocarbon also is, you know, it’s realsensitive, and since we’re fishing this weightless,you’re fishing it on a slack line, any littlebit of sensitivity that you can gain the better. So, fluorocarbon. And I’m fishing it on a medium action rodwith an extra fast tip. So not a medium-heavyor heavy action rod, but medium-heavy . . . ormedium rod with an extra fast tip that helps. . . the fast tip aids in throwing this baitout there. It’s a real light weight, so youneed that tip to toss it out there again,again bait casting rod. That’s the standard gear. Of course, you canuse spinning if you want. That’s . . . nothingwrong with that. , use an 8lb test, 15lb testline. I tend to throw the bait around heavycover, and around bushes, and thick weeds,so I’m using the 15lb, that’s why I do that. But if you’re in open water? Fishing rockyareas, where there is not a whole lot of vegetationor something where the fish can wrap you up,then by all means, go with 8lb test, 6lb testif you want. Nothing wrong with that. I’mjust telling you the way that I do it. Okay,so that’s the gear, that’s how I use it. Nowlet’s go out and fish it. Okay, so one of the basic ways and the mosteffective ways to fish the Senko is simplyjust cast it out there, engage the reel, andthen let it sink. Let it do its thing. TheSenko flutters and moves and wiggles. Thekey thing is, when it’s falling like thatyou wanna watch the bait. You wanna watchthe line especially. Watch that line to seeif it twitches, jumps, flicks, does anythingodd, because that’s usually the fish grabbingit. So pay close attention that if you seethat, then of course set the hook. Once it hits the bottom, all you’re gonnado is just lift it up with your rod tip, andlet it fall and slack line. Reel up some ofthat slack, ’till it’s just about . . . ’tillyou just about have the bait, but you don’twanna move the bait with your reel. You justwant it to fall straight down, and that’sthe enticing . . . it does the work for you. You don’t have to do anything. Let it fall. Again, now my line is slack, so I know thatit’s hit the bottom. I’m just gonna reel itright back up again. All I’m doing here, I’m fishing an area that’sgot some rocks in here, and some scatteredweeds, and the fish are out here roaming init, and that’s a perfect way to fish thisbait. And that is how I do it 90% of the time,how anybody does it, really. You just castit out, let it fall. A lot of time those bitesoccur on the fall on that slack line and that’sthe hard part, it’s detecting that bite. Sopay real close attention to that line. Ifyou don’t and the fish grabs it, then by thetime you realize there’s a fish there andyou set the hook, you might gut hook fishthem. It’s real easy to do that with thisbait, so pay close attention to that line. I’m gonna show you one other way to retrieveit. Once you’ve cast it out there, now whatyou wanna do is kinda bring the rod tip down,just kinda twitch it. And then just twitchit back to the boat. And you can do this atany speed. Here I’m doing it at a moderate,you know . . . twitching. This is like a jerkbait. But one other way to do it is, you cando it really fast. You can do it slow, youcan do it really fast. You can make it looklike a bait fish just kinda skimming acrossthe surface. Just pop it, pop it, pop it,pop it. And reel it in as you do it. And itlooks just like a little bait fish that’strying to get away from something. And a lotof time, especially when the fish are feedingon schooling bait fish, you can throw rightinto them and pop it like this and you cancatch a lot of fish doing it this way. Okay, very straightforward way of fishingit. One other method I wanna show you here,you cast it out, let it sink, and once ithits the bottom, all you wanna do is dragit on the bottom. And here you are tryingto imitate some kind of a bait fish, say asculpin or something like that, feeding offthe bottom. And in that case you just wannamove it with the rod tip. I like to move itto the side. Some people like to lift up onit, but I don’t wanna lift it up off the bottomhere, I just wanna drag it along. Just movethe rod tip, and then reel up the slack. Andthat’s all there is to it. StraightforwardSenko fishing. If you fish it like this you’regonna have whole heck of a lot of fun. For more tips and tricks like this, visitthe BassResource. com.
