this is a fish my wife got a about a month ago. she put a small piece of leftover bloated worm in the water when my son said he was done for the day and it took the bait about 5 seconds later. i got a nice walley on a pond magic spinner just before and have been try`n to get a smallmouth every day for weeks now and just cant get one, tried spinners , topwaters, thin fins, grubs, and tons of worms that just get stolen as soon as i put thenm in the water and today tubes. starting to think that was the only fish in that lake that was not a sunfish pearch or rockbass.

Drop offs + emerging rock piles. Focus your efforts at these locations, and fish off of the main lake points. Like you said, its summer, and its been a hot one...so the right depth is key to your success. Use your tube jigs, let them get to the bottom and slowly drag them back to you. If that doesnt work, snap them off the bottom from time to time. Try your topwaters early in the morning near those emerging rock piles.

Whats best? Who knows, the fishes preference change change daily, even hourly. I always tell people to experiment, sometime the odd colors will get bit.

I'd start with one of brown ones myself, but in the course of the day try to throw all the colors you have. From your picture, I can see the bottom...it looks like a sandy brown/tan color. A good starting point is to try to match your tube as closely to the color of the bottom as possible.

Drip the scent stuff you have on the tube jighead before you insert it into the body of the tube, itll smell a bit longer, and make the jighead slide in easier too.

  1. Tubes, stay natural colored.
  2. This means dark brown, watermelon, blues, dark greys.
  3. Sometimes I'll take a hit at night on white. very rarely...
  4. Not sure why it's numbering my post...
