Will a Wacky Rig work if the water temp is 55 degrees?

One thing you can do if the water is cold is downsize a bit. Wacky rigs pre-date the senko by a long time.
Instead of the senko, use a Zoom Centipede or Chompers French Fry. Same rig, smaller profile, and it will sink much slower.

Heck, why wouldn't it work? I've used wacky rigged unweighted senko type lures down here in Tennessee in the winter and the bass ate them just fine. Typically wacky rigged lures fall slowly and that's what you're looking for, a slow fall....

A wacky rig fished with a drop shot is a very good option in cold water.My three cold water rigs,I consider cold water as below 50 degrees,is a drop shot rig,suspending jerk bait and a light bucktail jig tied with lot's of bucktail so it drops very slow.With all that said sometimes a rattle bait ripped will just hammer bass.
