I was exploring a cove for Bluegill a couple weeks ago with little success. I decided to try something different. I purchased these tube jigs about a year ago but never tried them. I tied on a pair of these jigs on 1/32 ounce jig heads and started catching crappie, bass and gaspergou on almost every cast.
I then tried them below the spillway along the rocks. I caught crappie, green sunfish, warmouth, gaspergou and buffalo on the jigs.
So I took them out to the main lake and did some exploring. They worked great again. I caught bluegill, green sunfish, small bass and gaspergou. The only problem is they aren't weedless so when I found the bluegill in the submerged weeds in shallow water I had to switch over to a fly rod and top water popper.
