Netbait Salt Lick

If I'm out fun fishing or if I know I'm gonna be throwing a stickbait all day, I'll go for this one. It has a very similar action and it's more durable. They have plenty of colors to choose from and they're loaded with pork fat.

Lunkerhunt Lunker Sticks

This is just another one that I throw every now and then.

Keitech Salty Core Stick

The only other bait that I think rivals the Senko itself is this bait. They have a salty center that gives the bait an awesome action on the fall. They're super soft as well. I highly recommend these!

Yamamoto is the only way to go for me when fishing that type of baits.


This question gets asked usually once a month is why there is some much popcorn eating going on up above.

I use Gary Yamamoto in tournaments and other brands for fun fishing. Gary Ys aren't as durable but the action a lot better

I've been using the Barlow's brand lately. Heck of a deal if you live close and can avoid shipping expenses.

When they're feeding, it doesn't really matter much which brand you use. When they're flat out not going for it, I've seen the Yamamoto senko outperform other brands. There are so many senko-like alternatives these days that there must be a few that are equally effective, I just don't use them enough to have found them yet.

I sure do love the Gary Y. But I feel like they sure are not as durable as they use to be!

Ones I like: Yamamoto Senko, Yum Dinger, Wave Worm tiki stick, LFT hyper stick, and Grande Bass Snake-0.

All of them work well. I wacky rig the solid bodied ones and Tx. rig (weightless) the segmented bodied ones.

Yamamoto for me. Love the senko and its action when falling. Have tested several brands in the pool and no comparison. I order enough Yamamoto to get free freight. Only need a $50.00 order.
