Tube Fishing Tricks For The Fall Transition

Are you struggling to catch fish right now? The Summer to Fall transition can be a difficult time to keep track of the fish. In recent weeks we've given some key tips on consistently catching fish during this transition but if you're still struggling, this video is for you!

The finesse tube is an overlooked gem for consistently putting fish in the boat. With the recent successes of the Ned Rig, Dropshot, and Neko rig, the tube has fallen to the wayside. Make no mistake, it is still an amazing producer!

Tim has seen consistent success on a tube for years, especially during difficult transition periods. In this video he breaks down the where, when, and how of catching bass on the tube. If you’re tired of struggling and ready to see success, tie on a 1/4 oz finesse tube and head to the lake.

Trolling Motor Installation: Minn Kota Ultrex

Step one in our bass boat retrofit is a new trolling motor. We're upgrading from the Maxxum Pro to an Ultrex 112. Matt explains each step of the process as he shows just how quickly and painlessly these motors can be installed. Start to finish the installation takes less than an hour.

If you've considered the Ultrex for your next trolling motor its definitely worth the investment! Once you've experienced spot lock, heading, and a few of the other features there really is no going back. It adds an incredible level of convenience to your day on the water.

We use the 112 lb with 52" Shaft. If you are combining with Humminbird Electronics be sure to use the "Link" version of the motor so you gain all of the available features.
