6th Sense is constantly coming out with new products, and they have done it again with the Bongo 3.7. This bait has 3D scales to give it a lot of realism. The bait is 3.7” long and has a thin body that also allows for increased action of the claws which moves more water and can attract more fish. This bait can be rigged a ton of different ways, and I’m going to talk to you about a few of my favorites for the Bongo, which are the texas rig, carolina rig, chatterbait, and as a jig trailer.
Any craw style bait matches up perfectly for a texas rig. When you rig a bait like the bongo on a texas rig you can cast it out and work a slow retrieve back, flip it to shallow cover, or even punch it through thick vegetation. I’d recommend a 4/0 EWG style hook. The 4/0 6th Sense Stout Widegap hook is a great option.
I throw a carolina rig a lot, and it’s actually one of my favorite techniques. I plan to be throwing the Bongo on a carolina rig when I’m looking for a more compact look than your traditional carolina rig baits. Once again, I’d recommend a 4/0 6th Sense Stout Widegap hook for the bongo on a carolina rig.
Having different trailers to pair with a chatterbait is key. Trailers have a big effect on the type of depth you’ll get out of a chatterbait, and how much action the bait will produce. The bongo can be rigged vertically on a chatterbait or horizontally. The horizontal presentation will give it more of a craw style look, and keep it higher in the water column, and a vertical presentation will give a more bait fish style presentation.
I think when most people see the bongo at first they think jig trailer, which was my first thought as well. One thing about the body of this bait that I really like is how thin it is, and also how streamlined it is. This will allow me to cut down the body of the bait, if I need to make my jig more compact, and a smaller profile. Sometimes bass want a smaller profile on a jig, and having a trailer like the bongo that you can cut down, makes a big difference.
