Just looking to get a kid a lot of bites. Fish size doesn't matter. Which worm do you choose?

1) Senko
2) Trick Worm
3) Finesse Worm

I generally choose a watermelon or green pumpkin color variation, but at times they want a blue fleck, purple, or black. Vary the way it’s fished, they may want it hopped of the bottom or laying dead still. Great technique for the kiddos. Good luck to you and your children.

If you just want bites/numbers, the 4 inch slim senko will get more than the standard 5”

Good call on the swamp crawler—get way more for the $ compared to the senko
I’d cut off an inch to get more numbers (would catch plenty of sunfish on a wacky shortened to 4.5 inch swamp crawler also)

Zoom finesse worm. Color is irrelevant, have not found a color that doesn't produce, the presentation is the attraction.

Another vote for the senko and Zoom Trick Worm. I also some strange baits, like a 4" to 10" worm, rigged wacky style. I have even used a crawfish, wacky rigged and got bit before, just goes to show you they will bit almost anything you get to them, AT TIMES, but not always. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Senko or Reaction Innovations Pocket Rocket. The Missile 48 is killer too.

Its pretty close for me.. my best days fishing wacky weightless was watermellon red Senkos. But that was in a small pond. I went through 3 bags over 4 days.. bass up to 8lbs., but if I was fishing big water.. a Zoom Trick Worm in Houdini color is really good wacky rigged.
