First Senko bass

Berg03
My brother kept telling me to use a Senko. It was my third cast out when I caught this litle guy. I had multiple other big bites just could not hook em, my question is how long after feeling them grab it should I try and set the hook? Should I set it as soon as the pull it? Or give them a second to take more in there mouth?

I like to give them a second or two. Maybe reel in the slack a little bit then set the hook.

Yup as with most plastics they seem to hang on must be that soft texture, every now and then they will bump and run but most of the time they just want to engulf things!

I set the hook once i feel the fish, but like TT said, reel the slack in first. If you see you line moving, just the hook and reach for the sky.

It really is, I am looking for some spots to fish the willamette with it near Salem area, anyone know some good spots they would like to share with me? :D I have fished the slough off river road a ton and I plan on using it there, just wondering anyother spots.

Thanks
