Rods n Rigs - Nail 'em with the Senko

E-mail Print PDF
May 29, 2014

If I had to choose one technique for bass fishing in the majority of scenarios I encounter, it would be a wacky-rigged Senko and, more specifically, the nail-weighted rig. This is a go-to technique for me year-round, although I don’t throw it as much in summer and early fall because of my love of topwater fishing. Nevertheless, it’s always on the deck, rigged and ready.

My son Richard and I catch lots of big ones with this technique. The 9-pound 5-ounce largemouth we used on our banners for years I caught on a nail-weighted Senko during an FLW tournament at Clear Lake. I’ve really worked on refining my tactics, so let me offer a handful of tips for nail-weighting success.

Beatin' the Bank with Bernie Schultz - 2014 Toledo Bend Elite

May 23, 2014

Toledo Bend is a massive body of water. So big, in fact, much of it serves as the border between Texas and Louisiana. For any angler, its size is intimidating. Just choosing a place to start can be daunting.

My track record on Toledo Bend is weak at best. Although I’ve cashed some checks there, they’ve been few and far between. In fact, the last time the Elites visited there I finished dead last. But the water was much lower then. This year it’s high with plenty of flooded shoreline grass — something I was glad to see.

I had anticipated the question my companion asked almost as soon as the highway we were on took us close to the Columbia River.

“Stan,” Charlie asked, “What the heck are those bass boats doing out there?  Do they use those bass rigs for salmon too?”

My friend Charlie, like lots of other newcomers to the area where the Columbia River divides the states of Washington and Oregon, didn’t expect to hear much about bass in that part of the world.
