We all know Senko’s catch fish.
A lot of fish.
And, there are so many good color choices to pick from. Yet, I always find myself throwing one of three different colors in certain places. And while I won’t say these color choices and covers are absolute, I still have to always try them.
Your mileage may vary.

Peanut Butter and Jelly
Okay if you make me choose a favorite, then I reckon this is the one. Not only am I partial to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (with milk) in real life, but, a PB&J Senko is one of my top colors to throw.
For whatever reason, if there is visible leafy, standing vegetation (cattails, elephant ears, etc…), I am casting a weightless PB&J up in that stuff.
It may not matter that much to the bass, but a weightless PB&J Senko is one of my confidence baits in this type of cover.

You can bet your next hook set that if there is thick vegetation like moss (or slime ugh!) or other matted grass, I am for sure letting a Baby Bass-colored Senko (weightless) sink along the edge of that stuff.
One of my brothers and I used to whack ‘em big time on a pond that had a ring of thick moss from the shoreline to about 15-20 feet out.
I’m sure that certain times of the year are best for Baby Bass-colored Senkos, but dang you can get bitten with them in that matted grass.
The Yum Dinger is a solid option too for this color if you run low on Senkos.
South African Special
I like the darker-colored South African Special in only specific conditions. Yea it probably doesn’t matter much at the end of the day. But, if there is thick matted vegetation with any exposed wood structures like stumps, laydowns, or another adjacent similar cover, I am throwing a South African Special weightless Senko.
Think stump fields immediately offshore from thick grasses and you’re getting smacked with bites on a South African Special colored weightless Senko.
Please share with everyone what your favorite Senko colors are and where you like to throw them!
