Fishing tube jigs  Csf 24 17 Tip 1

you know when I look at these lures they look so simple I’m gonna hold one up so you can see it really well this is a tube the actual plastic grub and inside is a jig head much like the one that I’m holding up here in my right hand if you think about it it’s a really simple lure it doesn’t really have an action tail it’s just a tube of plastic where they’ve cut the ends off and it looks a little bit like a squid for some reason this is probably the number one grub and jig combination to use for smallmouth bass when you’re fishing for them near the bottom I’d say virtually in any lake in North America especially in deep water I think one of the reasons these works so well is that they’re designed to be fished along the bottom where smallmouth do a majority of their feeding especially on crayfish leeches bait fish sometimes they’ll suspend up but a lot of times you’re around boulders and shoals and rock piles the second thing is when they grab this thing in their mouth the jig head is covered so they’re very soft and supple and smallmouth tend to try to eat it so if you don’t set the hook in about five seconds that fish is going to be hooked really deep so they work extremely well you can cover a lot of water with them now you can see the way of rig DS the jig heads are butted right up tight to the front of the tube that’s very important so you actually I wet the tube with a little bit of saliva take the jig head and then I insert it in as far as it’ll go and then I let the eye of the jig pierce through the top now the type of jig that you use is very important if you’re fishing in shallower water less than 10 feet deep you should be using a 1/8 ounce jig head or lighter even 1/16 if you have calm conditions clear water spooky fish and you need to use light line the deeper you go the heavier jig head you have to use or if the wind starts to pick up because the key is to keep this type of a grub close to the bottom now let me tell you a little bit about the different styles of of tube jigs this one that I’m holding up is a traditional tube jig head when I say traditional you can see that the eye is sticking out 90 degrees to the shaft of the hook and this is fine and it works well in open water or if your vertical jigging it right underneath the boat but if you’re dragging this type of a jig a tube over a lot of rocks and debris on the bottom it’s most likely to get hung up because the front of it will get jammed under a rock that’s when I like to use a jig head that has a 60 degree okay so you see here that one is 90 degrees the eyelet goes straight up this one in in the front the eye actually is 60 degrees and I have another one here that’s the same so when you use that type of a jig head as you’re pulling it it tends to pull the head of the jig up into the air it helps to climb over rocks as well so also these two jig heads are just straight weight there’s nothing in it this particular jig head has a rattle you can probably hear it so this is the actual rattle that’s built in some anglers will snap on rattles and sometimes the rattles make a big difference especially if you’re fishing this collared water or very deep water and you’re trying to attract a fish from a further distance so using a simple tube with tube jig heads is one of the best ways to catch smallmouth bass
