We bass angler’s are always looking for new weapons in our ever growing arsenal of tackle. If it is new or different and catches fish, we want one, or two or three…. The tube jig is just such a bait. Although on the market for several years now, tube baits have undergone some changes and are making a big comeback. Denny Brauer, last year’s Bassmaster Classic champion, brought the bait back into the spotlight following his victory using tube baits.
The original tube jigs were 3″-31/2″ long. The new tube jigs are 4″ plus and are bigger in diameter than before. They come with salt impregnated in them and in a variety of scents to enhance their fish catching ability.
