Haven't used GYCB products in years.... Can't justify the price for a bait that tears that easy and IMHO doesn't catch any more fish than a YUM Dinger, Gambler Ace, or some other knock offs I've purchased at 1/2 the price of GYCB. Skipping a T-Rigged GYCB Senko is akin to burning money. :doh:

I used the Gander Mountain ones for a while. Pretty good bait. I would only use GYCB senkos in the smaller sizes because the do shimmer a noticeable amount better than the off brand.

Yum Dinger! Or better yet, the Wacky Worm Wacko...made locally in PA and they happen to be the best I have ever used. Call Lou and check out the colors/prices/quantity and they will bang-for-buck beat out anything I have thrown in the Senko style.

Honestly I have not found a replacement for the gary senko, but I have found uses where a yum dinger is actually better. The gary senko produces more fish for me but the dinger is no slouch. I love to pitch senkos into cover to see if theres a fish I missed with my jig hiding under there. Yum dingers come into play for me when I'm targeting suspended fish in off shore cover, where I want a slightly lower rate of fall. I have found this useful for when the senko falls a little to quick and the fish needs an extra second to look at it. Personally though I seem to do better on jig :lol:
