I could go on for days with all the techniques you could try for bass...but I'll just name a few that I know
work for me. Try spinnerbaits. Try crankbaits(I like squarebills in stumps&rocks, lipless in grass). You're right about Senkos...great worms...there are several good ways to rig 'em too...wacky style, Texas, Carolina, drop shot. By being in a kayak, you can reach fish that guys in boats miss. Fish way up in the shallows, under docks and boats, rig your Senko Texpossed without a sinker. When it gets hot and the bass won't hit anything...toss a bubblegum worm(that's right...pink) into a tight spot and hang on!
