I'm starting this topic for some conversation about Tube baits. I fish them weedless with a small weedless bullet type weight on the head and mostly skip them along the bottom.

I don't usually break them out till just about now each year.. went today when it was realllly windy and pulled about a 2 lb small mouth and a little 8 inch northern while trying to control the bait in the heavy wind. Used a chartreuse with black specs berkley tube today.

Just lookin for tips and/or conversation about tubes.

what i do is pitch them around heavey cover form 2-7 feet and let it sink and watching my line the whole time cause if its bouncin or movin i set the hook right there. Because they mostlikley hit on the fall

Yeah.. tube's get hit on the drop .. all of a sudden instead of going straight down on the drop your line stars going out away from the weedline etc. Only thing I have a real problem with is sometimes I don't wait long enough and try to set the hook too quick like I would with crankbaits etc which are more fool proof, thus pulling the tube and hook outa the fish's mouth.

One thing I noticed tonight when I went back out again.. the bass weren't exactly large the 3 total I caught today with tubes.. the hook going trought eh side of the mouth and coming out a small gay between the eye and the eye socket of the fish. It didnt' cause any harm any of the 3 times.. but seemed a little wierd to me, haven't never hooked a fish near the eye even double trebles of a larger rapala.
