Mostly Texas rigged with an 3/16 bullet or wacky rigged, it's hard to have enough patience for true weightless.

I like using the larger senkos in the winter and deadstick them on deep points and other structure. Sometimes it takes several minutes for a cast. Ive caught some really nice bass doing this

Do you need more backbone in a Rod to fish 6" Senkos Texas Rigged over an 1/2oz jig. My thinking is the 6" Senko because you need to pull the hook through a chunk of plastic first. Let me know your preference

Mostly weightless Texas rigged over grass and let it drop in the holes.

This. There is nothing like picking off 4 pounders consistently by doing this in the winter.

Mostly texas rigged. Sometimes I even throw a weight on there to get it deep and get longer casts.
