It's a versatile soft plastic lure that can be used in many ways... Texas-rig, Carolina-rig, weightless/weedless, wacky rig, flipped and pitched in heavy cover, or around wood and docks. It does it all. From Largemouth Bass, to Smallmouth, to Spotted Bass, it can produce bites year 'round. So, here's the question...
Are Yamamoto Senko's the best soft plastic stick bait on the market? Virtually every lure company you've heard of has copied it. Some are cheaply made, and some are well made. I've personally been using them since they were first introduced to the market. Some brands are very durable, but don't have good sinking action. Some are loaded with salt, easily cast off your hook, or last for only one or two fish.
I've tried them all. I've been Bass fishing for a living, as a professional guide and tournament fisherman, for over 22 years, and recently launched my own lure company, CPF Lures. I did this to solve many of the problems I saw in lure industry. With my business partner, we set out to simply create baits that work. Baits that are designed to catch fish, not fishermen.
Obviously, we did not design, or create, the Senko. Gary Yamamoto did. We just feel that we've made it better with the introduction of our 5.5" Stickler Pro. Hope you enjoy the video!
