5 inch senko
« on: 04/12/21 09:17 UTC »
Just a sample of my many tries with the 5in Senko mold.  Don't think the purple will catch anything but it sure is pretty.  Not trying to match any particular color; just having fun now trying different combinations.  Some look pretty good

Bass  are generally not that fussy and you've got some dandy baits to tempt them now. Nice work.

Nice looking baits.  Do not sell the purple one short.  Guarantee it will catch fish.
I find it incredible that I have to explain to a grown American citizen that taking a knee during the National Anthem is disrespectful.

Nice start you’ll be surprised at what works when you didn’t think it would the red one is easy to see when site fishing when there on the beds and it’s so much fun making creation’s no one has ever seen and yet you catch fish with it.
May your days be filled with sun shine and you always have a tight line. AMEN

Looking good. All of those colors will catch fish. Red will definitely work.

Ditto-

Bassmaster magazine had an article on purple worms back in the 1980s where they stated that purple was the all-time top producing color (at that time) and was a personal fave of mine for a number of years... there were no mixed baits like we see today, but be assured that purple DOES catch fish!

You're referring to the light purple one second from the left?  That thing will for sure catch fish.  Wacky or weightless T rig and just twitch it to give it a dying shad appearance- I promise you that thing will get bit.

I'm taking them to Lake Norman in N.C. in June (family summer trip).  Will let you know how the purple one works.  Thanks for the many nice replies and encouragement.  I'm going to keep playing with colors.
