Vertical Reaction Fishing - How Tai Au Power-fishes a Senko and a Neko Rig

You may have seen Yamamoto pro Tai Au fishing a Senko and not even realized it. He fishes it fast — faster than anyone I’ve ever seen. “The Senko is probably my number one money-maker bait, but when my non-boaters see how I fish it, they’re like ‘no way!’” says Au. “There is so much you can do with a Senko — I’ve never been on a lake that you couldn’t catch them on a Senko.”

Cowboys, Kreatures, and Senkos on Hidden Lake

We recently received an invitation to visit Arizona’s newest bass lake – Hidden Lake – from Nitro pro Matt Shura. I honestly hadn’t even heard of this lake until Matt called.
