Tubes Vs Jigs

Recommended Posts

What do you all prefer to fish if the fish seem to be hitting both and why?  I'm fishing the muddy brown WI river.  Shallow rocky current areas and doing well on tubes and jigs.  Pretty new to this type of fishing.  I was just curious as to what you all prefer.  Thanks.

Definetly jigs.  I have a lot more confidence in jigs, than I do with tubes.  I have never really had real good luck with your run of the mill tubes.

I have, however, had great success with the NetBait Baby Paca Craw, which is a craw mimic that is made into a tube.

I have fished jigs for 7 years now.

As I said, just a confidence thing.

I usually like tubes just a little better but if there hitting them both I'd go with a jig cause it will catch more bigger fish.

My advice would be the addition of RATTLES !! Either use a jig with enough weight to maintain contact with the bottom but with a rattle. This will help the bass to locate the lure. Try adding a bright trailer white or chartruse.

With a tube once again i would still stay with a bright color, but in addition i would also add a RATTLE. In local tackle shops look for a rattle you can insert inside the tube. The fish fill be able to zero in on the lure. Stay in contact with the bottom.

Personally i like a Jig early in the season when bait is scarce. I like a Tube late in the summer after spawn to resemble small baitfish.
