If its in open water with no moss or weeds flip the hooks around you will catch them then. by flipping the hooks around so they are on the bottom it will no longer be weedless.

I've got a 7lb brown trout on the wall that came out of the Meramec River many years ago. MODoC quit stocking browns in there after a couple big floods wiped out all of the rootwads and graveled in several of the best holes. They still stock rainbows and there are a lot of them 16"+ in there. 4lb SMB are not uncommon, and there are several 5lb+ smallies caught in the Mac every year.

The upper part of the Current River is loaded with trout. Several miles of it are managed as a trophy section. That stretch is loaded with 18"+ rainbows and browns. No soft plastics allowed on that section, but the section below holds a lot of big fish too. Further downstream it transitions into smallmouth water.

Same deal on the Niangua, except there's no trophy section, so no restriction on soft plastics. Several miles of really good trout water, then many more miles of really good smallie water.

Missouri is great place to live for people who like to fish. We have a lot of variety here.

I've never caught a BG that was big enough to inhale a 5" Senko. I got into some RES at a conservation area lake a couple weeks ago that could have done it. The biggest one was 12.5". He's in my pond now, along with a few of his buddies. ;-)

We call that one the Pink Stinko. It is my A Number One go-to bait for stream fishing.

The fish literally will fight over those things when you drift it out of the riffle into a pool.

I've had days where two bags of them wasn't enough to make it to the end of a nine mile float.

My family has fished the Meramac for five generations now. I love that place.

I second Augie's senko advice. I would only add that cracking tube baits with a lead head across the bottom is a second favorite for me, but the strike patterns from the SMB can be tricky.
