Sweeney Lake (MN)
Omnia Community Member reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Tubes technique and Strike King Coffee Tube on Sweeney Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Great lake to fish. The public ramp doesn't allow trailers so make sure you canoe it or kayak without a trailer. Also make sure the homeowners that boat on the lake actually see you. A couple have not paid attention and have been very reckless in how close they get."
Mississippi River (Monticello) (MN)
Tubes and crankbaits on rock banks with boulders in the most current available. The crawfish were colorful, green and red.
Mille Lacs Lake (MN)
Dragging Strike King Coffee tubes in 10-20 feet of water in areas where rock switched to sand was most productive. Used a bunch of different colors, and as long as it had some kind of green pumpkin look, it would get bit.
Mississippi River (Monticello) (MN)
Nate Hunhoff reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Tubes technique and Howie's Tackle Shorty Tubes on Mississippi River (Monticello). Additional comments from this report: "Snapping a tube, feel for good rock and milk that area. Tube was getting bigger bites then a ned but ned was getting numbers."
Lake Vermilion (MN)
Howie's tubes are fantastic! They seem to be tougher and last longer then other tubes and they flat out catch smallmouth.
Pool 12 Mississippi (IL)
Dragging tubes over rocks. Sunfish imitating colors worked best
Lake Belle Taine (MN)
Scott Clark reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Tubes technique and Yum 4" Tube on Lake Belle Taine. Additional comments from this report: "The water is clear enough, look for the clumps of weeds and work the edges with a tube or ned rig. Also work the deeper weed edges."
Lake Dubay (WI)
Nick Carpenter reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Tubes technique and Yum 4" Tube on Lake Dubay. Additional comments from this report: "Fishing around rock and some woody debris, throwing the fluke around the stumps and wood and the stupid tube for cleaner-ish bottom while trying to avoid snags "
