Soft Stickbaits for Skipping

The next time you encounter a situation that calls for a skipping presentation, such as a boat dock, pier or overhanging branch, try a soft stickbait. When rigged Texas-style and weightless, a Yamamoto Senko or Venom Salty Sling skips as easy as any bait on the market. Additionally, they offer a profile different from the normal skip-baits like tubes and jigs. The combination of better placement and a different look can trigger bass holding deep beneath overhead cover.
