JT Kenney has a hot new technique for fishing a stick worm, like a Yamamoto Senko. When most people think of a stick worm, they think about finesse fishing with light line and spinning tackle. Perhaps their mind goes to fishing a wacky rig. JT Kenney has a whole different purpose for fishing a soft plastic stick bait with baitcasting tackle. JT's sneaky approach allows you to go behind guys fishing heavy cover with traditional flipping baits, and catch some fish that are left behind in heavily pressured fishing situations. Learn how JT Kenney uses a soft plastic stick bait to catch bass out of cover in this bass fishing class seminar video.
