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.

Spring is prime time to go fishing and these baits will help you catch more fish! Don't worry about trying a dozen different baits, focus on these key categories, especially when the conditions get tough! 

Many anglers think of Spring as the time get out and power fish. While this is a great plan, it doesn't always pan out.

Underwater Drop Shotting | Crystal Clear Bass Fishing Footage!

This is the clearest Underwater finesse fishing footage we've ever captured! We even included the "above water" angle so you can get a full picture of what is going on. These bass can't resist the drop shot and the finesse tube. 

Spring smallmouth are incredibly aggressive, especially when the spawn begins. Its very educational to watch how they interact with the finesse baits. We were amazed to see that the fish's dorsal fins stand up as soon as the baits touch the surface of the water. Before they can see the worm they're already on high alert, waiting for it to arrive.. It makes you wonder what else they're aware of!
