Hey guys!

I usually fish for cats and was wondering what rod you guys recommend for fishing a senko worm, tx rigged or wacky--

Also, I use spinning reels, which would you recommend to pair with it? I would think some 7 ft ML-MH?

What kind of line do you use for bass fishing? power pro braid? mono?

Thanks!

A senko is the perfect bait to start with. I'd get either medium or MH. Medium vs Medium Heavy will be a personal preference. Some manufacturers the Medium is more like a MH, and some manufacturers the MH is more like a medium.

Rods from $30-$70 good for a weightless senko
AllStar classic MH worm rod at Academy or online
No 8 tackle Medium online
Abu Garcia Vendetta Medium at Wmart
Daiwa Jupiter MH at Wmart

Spinning reel around $50--Pflueger President 6935 at Wmart

Line (again personal preference)
I like 20lb power pro braid to 12lb Seaguar Red Label Fluoro leader (both available at Wmart or Academy) for a weightless senko.

How do you attached your leader to the line? Barrel Swivel or direct tie? I never learned how to tie line to line.

I always use barrel swivels for my carolina/catfish rig
