    They are like a stick bait made of plastic. Bass Pro shop calls them "sticko's" not quite like a senco, but basically the same thing. They are just a straight piece of plastic. CATKING......... Stick to cattin............ :p

    a "senko" is a heavy soft plastic stickbait made by Gary Yamamoto, you can find them at Dicks and Gander Mountain for about 6 bucks a pack.

    Hi, Bass Pro doesn't sell the senko. Cabela's has them in their catalog. Gander mountain also sell's them. I have found that the new finesse worm works just as well as the senko. I caught ten bass with the same finesse worm on Saturday.
     
  10. D**k's has a huge selection of the Yamamoto original senkos. Plus this week they have the Yum version (Dingers) on sale 3 get 1 free. They had a pretty good selection of those as well.

    Tried "senko's" for the first time this spring on a Texas fishing trip at my son's suggestion. I am a true believer in their effectiveness at catching bass. They really out performed all of my traditional soft baits that I had with me.

    They actually wern't "senko's" they were "Kanami's", very heavily salted, tear easily. I was able to find some at a local wal-mart. We went through $50 worth in 4 days of fishing.

  12. I don't know about the online store but the Bass Pro here in Cincinnati does sell them. I just bought a few.

    they are on an endcap in the middle of the fishing area.

    Kinami Flash is a real Senko. Just marketed under a different name with less in a package...thus costing less. Look closely at the package. It says "Yamamoto Enterprises".
