What are your favorite bass tube baits?

Tube baits today are not the tube baits of ten years ago. It is also not just for light lines in clear water. Tube baits are made for flipping, and flipping accounts for more bass on the line than any other lure out there. One of the best tube baits is a Strike King Flippin Tube in a blue and black. This is especially good for stained water bass fishing. It has the bulk you need for these conditions while it still has a compact design that makes it perfect for flipping. It is easy to get into the heavy cover when you are using The Strike King Flippin Tube as well. It cuts through heavy winds too, making it even easier to cast. To use this tube, to rig it like you would any soft plastic jerk bait. Use about a twenty pound test line and any good 4/0 hook. You may also use a drop shot rig when you are using this flipping tube to catch bass. You really can use a drop shot anywhere you would use an Carolina Rig. Just use about a 3″ tube, and rig it like you would a grub. Thread your tube onto your hook about 3″ down, then go through your bait, leaving your hook completely exposed. You will see especially good results using this method around grass beds, boat docks, and points. Another good way to rig your tube is using a leadhead jig. Use it as you would a jigging spoon or swimming bait. If you use this in conjunction with a 1/8 to a 3/16 ounce jighead Also, don’t discount the good, old “Gitzit” tube. It is good for light line casting, and really does work well rocky banks, steep bluffs, and similar areas with structure. Try it Carolina rigged and cast under docks and see if you don’t find yourself reeling in the bass!
