90% of the time weightless wacky rig. 10% texas rig. For drop shot I prefer a finesse worm

if you're not punching or otherwise fishing the Senko in really heavy cover, it's easily handled with medium or medium heavy powered rods. I very rarely fish a Senko with any weight, and I don't like to fish it on heavy line, rarely using anything heavier than 12# fluoro. If you're not using a heavy wire hook when you rig it weedless, there's no issue setting the hook with light line and a medium power rod.

I usually don't have the patience to fish em weightless so I'll put at least a 1/16oz weight on it

Wacky!!! You get the most action out of a senko, no matter what size you use. Make sure that you use the o rings so you don't loose your bait when casting it. I Can't remember the last time that ive texas rigged a senko...

Works great in the heat of summer also. Painfully slow.

1/8 oz. tungsten not pegged works great for post spawners in the spring.

Weightless, nose-hooked.

Weightless: because they are sinking, you don't need a weight. A bullet weight just drags the worm into the bottom behind it.

Nose hooked: for more hookups. Texas rigging is evil :evil:

Rigged wacky weedless, sent skipping across the surface to intended targets then allowed to wiggle and jiggle on the fall. Once on the bottom it is dead sticked for up to 2 minuets depending on the activity level of the fish.
