Thinking about it myself a couple of days ago. I haven't heard from Russ (gotsnodooks) since he announced he was moving to NSB.

He hasn't been in any of the FBRC Monthly contests, which is the precursor to the Classic.

So unless I hear from him I will be having an open Sleeping Spot and Back Seat.

Like any Bait, it has it's time and place.

I like to use a Heavy Action, Fast Tip Rod (same as for Heavy Punching) rigged with 65 lb Braid. You need that strength if you get hooked into something and want your approx $25.00 back (Rig plus Jigs and Baits).

There are time when it has Shined for me and others when I couldn't buy a bite. During a Feeding Period like before/after the Spawn and Fall when fish are feeding heavy it is Good.

I have also had good luck during the Summer when the water is low and the fish are more concentrated into the deeper cuts. The Competition Factor seems to make them hit it harder.

Usually it os a One Fish at a time deal, but I have caught up to 3 at once.

Not something I want to throw all day but will if it is the Deal of the Day.

I can see where Trolling with it should work to.

It's a winter time suspended fish deal around here also. We can only have 3 hooks so the top 2 I either cut the hooks off the swimbait heads or use a hitchhiker.
 The majority of the time it's the center arm that gets bit so I like a bigger swimbait , like a Keitech 3.8 on it and something smaller on the others. A grub works fine also.
 A stout rod is a must and I like 25lb. test . Braid works also.

I have a lot of success with A-rigs for bass in the winter and early spring months in deep water reserviors. Once the water hits around 50f I can't buy a bite on the rig.

I have one 4 arm umbrella rig that I bought to troll for Stripers. It's a much heavier version than what are used for bass. I think the arms are 15" long. and there's about a 2 ounce weight to the lead portion. Umbrella rigs with 4 or more arms are a popular set up for the Chesapeake Bay, but as I mentioned, in MD waters they're still restricted to only two hooks, so most folks rig them with a combination of dummy baits, such as Sassy Shads, which do not have hooks and those that do, usually the at the center and the rear most position.

Umbrellas are also used for offshore trolling, and again mostly with teasers that have no hooks, and one center lure that does and is on the back end.

I use them for stripers, troll a nine bait rig with bucktails. Never really tried for bass with them, just not a way I’d really enjoy catching them. I’ve run them on my heavy action baitcasters, but I have an old heavy action ugly stick spinning rod I usually run it on.

I think the concept is a valid one. I know folks catch fish with them. That said I tried it for awhile and man that thing is a lot of work to fish. Just wasn't something I wanted to continue fishing. Trollng may be a great idea with it though. Sure beats casting it.  ;)

Fished at the lake on 16 July 2019. Extremely hot day (94+) I got in lake at 0810 by time I parked and got to boat launch area. Within 10 minutes and about 20 casts I got my first fish on a 5” Senko work (watermelon w/ black flake). Approximately 2 lb bass in shallows. I moved down bank and caught 3 more bass before 1100 near the breast. After that I went in a cold spell as the temps got high. I put a heavier worm on with a split shot and 7” worm. Got out to the deeps and picked up a few bites. Finally caught a 3-4 lb bass. That was the end of the day for me. Too hot and couldn’t get consistent bites.

Anyway I think you can catch fish here on senko but weather seemed to play a big part in lack of big day. Started out strong but just couldn’t capitalize on it all day

I bought two smaller, lighter versions a couple of years ago, with the idea that they might be good for chasing Crappies or other panfish. My thought then was for trolling them, not so much for casting.

I was still living in MD then, and the law there restricts them to two hooks, so I rigged two small jig heads with grubs on each one, and the other connections I added small willow leaf spinner blades.

Only used one of those rigs, one time, and caught some fish with it. Slowly trolled behind my boat, in shallow water, it's a good way to target the panfish. I don't think I would want to cast it, even though I do have some gear that's heavy enough. Can't imagine casting the bigger, bass size rigs, but folks certainly do it.
Good idea! Troll it with one of my drift fishing heavy rigs.
