larger tube jigs
« on: Mar 27, 2022, 09:06 AM »
i was able to find a larger tube jig prbly 4" at a local store... but when i asked about a longer jig head to put in it they didnt have it... a regular jig head hook length would put the hook way up in the tassles... hard to get the minnow on and prbly hard for the fish to get too as well...anyone have a source for a longer hook model?  i dont even know if this bigger tube jig will bring more fish.. just thinking it will be more visible... ideas/suggestions?  this is for lakers by the way..

Look at buckeye lures and VMC also make a jig head that works good in that situation.

you can always stuff a weight in front and put the jig farther back in the tube.

try some Alkaseltzer chunks or a rattle in that tube if you want attraction.  i also stuff my tubes with berkley trout paste.

yes and noise from the fizz.  my point was to use sound instead of size.
