It is no secret that the Yamamoto Senko is one of the most versatile lures to ever hit the bass fishing scene. If you polled the guys making a living on the Elite and FLW tour circuits, (and could get them all to be totally honest) I think you would find that almost all of them rely, at some point during the year, on the fishing catching ability of the Senko.
It is also no big secret that one of the hottest new presentations over the past couple of seasons has been the advent of the “Swing Jig”—basically a football head leadhead with a free-swinging EWG style 3/0 or 4/0 hook attached by a fixed ring. This head style has proven effective with a variety of soft plastic lures, but has been principally associated with creature style baits, like the Yamamoto Kreature or the Flapping Hog. But, as I’ve come to realize over the past couple of months, this head works wonders when coupled with other plastic body styles.
