One question that regularly pops up when discussing the myriad of soft stickbait choices in the bass fishing market today…
Is one soft stickbait better than another when it comes to catching bass?
Though many sponsored anglers tend to claim their supporter’s bait is best, they will also often quietly admit they will default to the grand-daddy of soft stickbaits, the Yamamoto Senko, when the chips are down and money is at stake!
There are also quite a few “regular” folks touting the features of the Senko and how it outshines all other softstick bait brands at catching bass…
I will admit, there have been many days when the Yamamoto Senko came through for me even after starting with a competing, usually less expensive brand at the beginning of the day.
A couple of years ago I was introduced to Mister Twister’s soft stickbait version, the Comida and started fishing it with considerable success on many outings.
Since the Senko vs Comida (as well as other brands) question seems to always loom, this past season I tracked how the Comida fared vs the Senko on numerous days on the water…
What I discovered is very interesting as explained in the following video…

Thinking back to the days when I saw my first spinnerbait, I remember a lure with blades just like an in-line spinner but configured in a way to make it weedless.
My first reaction?
What an odd looking contraption…
I definitely had my doubts it would catch anything much less bass. After a little more research, I finally broke down, bought a couple and even caught a few bass on one my first time trying it. I was hooked for life 🙂
Initially I saw the spinnerbait as a lure that could be fished like an in-line spinner with a basic cast and retrieve approach. Little did I realize Continue reading
If you are fortunate enough to live in southern areas of the US and your local waters do not freeze over during the winter, piling on the clothing and hitting the water for a little bass fishing helps reduce cabin fever.
Even though a fair number of hearty souls brave the cold winter chill and head out for a little winter bass fishing, many struggle with the “catching” part of the success equation.
