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.

Summer Worm Fishing Tricks

Worms, colors, hooks, and even rod tips that will make you a better worm fisherman this Summer! Its time to fish a worm for those lethargic summer bass and we're going to tell you everything you'll need to know. 

Anglers often overcomplicate this style of fishing. Pairing a straight tail worm with a shaky head in either a natural or dark color is often all it takes to be successful in the summer. Keep it simple and focus more on your technique than complicated color selections.

Senko Fishing Challenge!

Tim and Matt go head-to-head for 20 minutes! Both are armed with a 5" senko, each rigged differently. May the best rig win! 

The senko is a proven fish catcher that works all over the globe for a variety of species. There are so many different ways to rig it but two methods stand out from the crowd. The first is the wacky rig, in which a small hook is secured in the middle of the bait and allows for maximum action. The second is a larger hook Texas rigged, allowing for the bait to be fished in and around cover.
