“Tube Terrific.” That’s what I want to talk about today. The thing that never ceases to amaze me about tube jigs is how they continue to catch fish. Whether it’s Walleye, Smallmouth, Largemouth, Lake Trout—everything, it seems, hits a tube jig. Even though there are exact replicas of crayfish and gobies and sculpin that look much more life-like than the tube, the tube is still the gold standard.
Now, you can insert a lead head in it, cast it out, drag it along the bottom and have the perfect imitation of a sculpin or a goby or a crayfish. On the other hand, you can rig it texas-style, and flip and pitch it into the weeds and reeds.
It’s one of the best Largemouth Bass baits ever designed. The only mistake you can make fishing a tube jig is not fishing it at all.
