Best Tube Fishing Bait

Omnia collects thousands of detailed fishing reports from anglers across the country to power our local recommendations. Here are the top Tubes recommendations for using the Tubes technique mentioned in fishing reports from anglers near you.

Strike King Coffee Tube


Reported by
Omnia Community Member

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."

Reported by

Tubes and crankbaits on rock banks with boulders in the most current available. The crawfish were colorful, green and red.

Mississippi River (Monticello) (MN)

Nate Hunhoff reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Tubes technique and Howie's Tackle Shorty Tubes on Mississippi River (Monticello).

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

Xzone Lures 3.75" X-Tube


Reported by
Bob Downey

Pool 4 Sloughs at Pepin (WI)

Pre-spawn conditions, water temps unseasonably cold for late April in the mid 40s. Found smallmouth grouped up in current seams behind islands in backwater channels. Relating the sand ditches near the current seams. Both stupid tubes and ned rigs worked well.

Eric Scrivner

Lake Vermilion (MN)

Eric Scrivner reported catching Smallmouth Bass using the Tubes technique and Xzone Lures 3.75" X-Tube on Lake Vermilion. Additional comments from this report: "Fished the west end during the last week of July and it was a tough bite. Tube jigs on wind blown shoreline rocks were the most consistent bait but could catch smaller bass on everything finesse. Caught a few largemouth and smallmouth on whopper ploppers as well, but it wasn’t a consistent pattern. Mostly struck out with the dropshot on deeper structure like rock piles and reefs except for dozens of 8-10” smallies and a handful of walleyes from 18-24”. "
