I generally use the 4 when wacky rigging, but wasnt sure if I should go up to 5 when fishing it T-rig? Did know if that one inch would reduce the number of bites significantly.

Thanks in advance

I always use 5". Never tried a 4". Do you get that many more bites with a 4"?

Real hard to cast the 4 inchers without a weight, even on a spinning reel

The 3 inch fat senkos cast easier than the 4 inchers on a spinning rig. Surprisingly good producers when fish have seen too many bigger senkos, especially when baitfish are small. They can be fished T-rigged, wacky, drop shot, or Ned rig.

I actually prefer the 6" size. It casts farther and I still get around the same amount of bites, and oftentimes they're bigger bites. I throw the 5" size weightless too. I just prefer the 6" more.

I use them all from 3 inches all the way to 2 seven inchers glued together to make one big one.. it all depends on many factors. location, time of year, water clarity, mood of the fish etc just to name a few.
