gotta love the Senko. That is a Guntersville phenom when the grass gets topped out.  Just throw it out there and hold on  ;D

I couldn't vote because I'm torn between the Texas Rig and The carolina rig. I love both of them and they both have their places in certain situations
My biggest fish I have ever caught come on the ball and chain using a brush hog. She weighed 11 and change.
As of this time of year both are workin extremely well on spawning flats and flippin bushes. I like to throw the C-Rig on ledges too.
I wanna go fishing right now!!!!!!
Hunting is a way of life: Love it, Teach it, Live it. But most of all.... RESPECT IT and pass it on!

The fish in my avatar was caught on a weightless fluke in Florida! 12.86lbs and she was released to have her babies for us to catch another day! My all time fav is the ribbit! Let's GO!

  I go weightless most of the time, sorry i left that out @--0--0128.  I love those Gary Yamamoto Senko's, they are the best.  I had to go try the local pond last Sunday evening but the water is still pretty cold up here.  We are supposed to get 1-2 inches of the white stuff today unfortunately so bass fishing is going to be put on hold even longer  :'(   Catch a few for me down there

Weightless 7 inch trick worm or weightless 4 inch tube are my faves. Also love the chatterbait, some swimbaits, and a jig spinner. But if they're hitting a buzzbait that just makes me giddy!

I agree, when they are hitting top water baits there is nothing more fun than that!

Texas rig mostly, but it depends on the structure I'm fishin'.

Don't know if I could pick just one method as my favorite. I fish several ways. Texas rig put my PB in the boat and I also like crankin' a lot. I like the yammies too, but lately have gone to throwing Grande Bass Baby Rattlesnakes and been doing real good with them. Fish them with a 1/8th or 3/16th tungston or on a shakey head.

I put down the texas rig cause you can fish it almost anywhere. You can't do that with the carolina but I've caught alot with the carolina. Have not done much wacky stuff.

##$%#1119 The Tube bait has always been a real crutch for me, sure would like someone to show me something on how to catch fish with them!  @--0--0125 I've tried different jigs, hooks and all i've ever caught on them is Flounder  @--0--0117

I picked the Texas rig but the carolina is a strong second for me...just depends on what I'm fishing.

I usually fish 'em with a straight shanked No.2 hook run through the length and exposed. You can either swim it or short hop it to mimic a crawdad. Have also rigged it weedless with a crooked shank by entering the nose and then exiting about 3/8 down, turning the hook and tucking the point into the hollow bottom of the tube. I really like 'em around docks and boathouses as they skip better than any bait I've ever tried.

At certain times, the wacky rig outshines every other bait out there.......BUT.....If I can only have one bait to fish with all year, it would be a 3/8 Arkie jig, watermelon with a watermelon or green pumpkin trailer.  This is the all terrain bait for all seasons.  You can flip it, pitch it, cast it, troll it, bank it off the back of your partners head and pretend it was an accident, swim it, over the shoulder, through the legs, etc....Anyway, jigs work all the time.  DT ##$%#1115
