I've never tried them but I bet they would be killer on a c-rig. Or for bed fishing, I bet those tentacles would just dance in the their face.

I've fished regular tubes unweighted and they will float quite a bit before taking on water and slowly sinking.

At times it's absolutely deadly. Steady twitching, or a twitch and a pause or do nothing in choppy water and let the ripples work it for you. Try different ways until you hook up.

Nice but who sells them?

From what I have read Carlson Tackle was recently bought by Erie Dearie

Looks like they bought them in 2003 and dont see them on their outdated website.

Here is a standard tube rigged on a small floating jighead. The little fish are more interested in the splitshot LOL.

Interesting that a standard tube is pretty floaty as the tail rises above the head.

Surprising that the 20# braid is not that visible too.

Just tried the same tube with a 1/O EWG and it just lays on the bottom.
