Vote for the best way to Rig your Tube


Recommended Posts

I think anyone that has read any of the tube discussions going on would see that I love fishing tubes...They are probably the most versatile and go to bait for smallies in my opinion.

My favorite way to rig a tube is t-rigged with an 1/16 or 1/8th oz peg (gremlin pinch kind) at the nose of the tube. My second, but probably equally preferred method of rigging, is t-rig with an internal weight/rattle from basspro in the 1/8thoz range. You'll see I like the little weights unless I'm fishing swift current!

Just my 2 cents

I like the internal weights. Work nice as long as you are not fishing a river, and are very low profile and low snag. Don't fish tubes a whole lot but last opener thats all they wanted.

i'll have to abstain on this one mainly because it depends on how i plan to fish it. i love to fish them with a jig inside and the hook exposed, but also as a texas rig, on a carolina rig, and some times as a swim bait. so for me it varies alot. del

Reverse rigging works really well for me. I rig it so that the hook is out the head of the tube, and the jig head is by the skirt section of the tube. When you pop that it really brings the skirt to life and has incredible action. You get the umbrella effect sometimes too. I've found this to work well on crappies too.

Good Fishin,

I'm with big mike on this one. I love texas rigging them with a light bullet. For the most part, i use 1/8 or 1/16 ounce, unless im fishing heavy cover, then i will increase the weight in order to penetrate the veg.
