Sure do. I fish them in a lot of situations that require a smaller bait. I've had phenomenal luck with them on Chequamegon Bay of Lake Superior for smallies, as well as on Lake Okoboji and other lakes close to home. My 7-9 smallie came on a Teaser Tube this spring which is Bass Pro Shop's 2-3/4 tube. I don't have a "Go To" color. My colors are adjusted to the lakes I fish and the water quality of said lakes. I have them in something like nine colors and use all of them throughout the year.

< 3" tubes can and will take decent fish when the conditions call for a smaller bait.

As far as rigging, normal tube jigs are too large. You can use a ballhead jig instead. For weedless, Owner Rig-N-Hooks are available in EWG worm sizes to fit the Bitsy's. The Rig-N-Hooks are extra short but have the gap needed for tubes. They're a perfect fit. The Bitsy's will also float an unweighted light wire hook, makes for some fun topwater on light tackle. I had a 5 lb bass explode on one of them at night while twitching it on top :D

Go on TW and search tubes. There are several small tubes available from different companies that are cheaper than the Bitsy's.

Uhh 7.9 pound smallie? Can I see a picture? I bet that thing was a freaking hog. Congrats man! I would love to see her!
