Killer Bass Fishing Tubes

Aug 13, 2008
There really are some killer bass fishing tubes available to enhance your bass fishing experience, particularly if you like fishing dock areas. Dock fishing is a favorite of many people, especially those who just want a few hours of quiet without the hassle of a boat. (But, hey, who doesn't like a boat?)

Now, there are times when it is not a good idea to fish the docks. One is during tournaments when every angler there is out in the dock area fishing for a big bass. Big bass love to cover of a dock, and they love to swim through shallow water (you can often see them right under docks and next to them in plenty of locations.)

Such heavy pressure really lessens your chances of catching a big bass, when there's a tournament happening, but when conditions are right, and big bass seek the shallow cover of the dock areas, you really should consider a heavy action rod and a tube.

A 7 foot flipping rod paired with a 4 inch Yum Garrett Mega tube really is a good choice, in spite of the fact that power fishing a tube is not your most common site. Look into this option for your first choice.

It all comes down to a choice between skipping some other lure under the dock, and hoping that you manage to land in a good spot or flipping and pitching a big tube into an exact spot where you know big bass are bound to be hanging out. The

Mega Tube is good because it is really heavily loaded to make it have the bulk it needs to get where you want it to go, but it is also exceptionally sleek, and unusually adept at coaxing big bass to take the bait. Another bonus is the Yum scent that just sets off the feeding response in these big lunker bass. When the bass think they have live bait, they hang on to it as long as they can giving you more chance to get them out of the water.

To rig the mega tube, try about a 17 pound fluorocarbon test line (for clear water) and tungsten weights. Then, tie on a 4/0 wide gap hook, Texas rigged. Peg your weight about half an inch above the tube.

When you cast your tube, concentrate your efforts on making your entry soft and accurate. Cast to areas near ladders, near the sides of docked boats, or other stationary objects providing cover for the big bass you seek. Practice makes perfect, but a good entry and a good location can make all the difference when it comes to catching or not catching the bass!

There are many types of tube lure designs. You can find those combined with various shapes such as crawfish shapes with the hollow body of a tube to create some really effective proucts. There are jig heads, rattles, hooks, trailers, and rattles to use with tubes. Tubes allow anglers to catch bass from the bottom all the way to the surface, and from the shallows to the deeps all year long.
