Gary Yamamoto's Senko Worms: Worth The Price?
Gary Yamamoto's "Senko" Worms have quickly proven to be a "winner" nation-wide for trophy sized bass - but at nearly $8.00 a bag - is the worm truly worth it? I can't help but think that the $2.00 bag of Mister Twister Comida Worms, the $3.00 bag of Lucky Strike Jogger Worms, or the YUM F2 Dinger Worms are just as effective and twice as durable.
Granted, part of the success of the Senko worm is it's "softness." That is after all what gives it it's lifelike action, as it is entirely more flexible than most baits. But I have to admit, the secret to it's success is also probably it's greatest downfall. I don't know about you, but I don't enjoy the fact that after the first fish or two I catch, my worm is completely shredded and torn in half [ even worse if you fish for Pike or Pickerel ]. Every time I have to re-rig, it's like throwing .80 cents in the water - not to mention the frustration of my line spending more time out of the water, than in. So I ask you, are these baits really worth the price, or are the alternatives just as effective?
