Bass Pro Shops® Bass Teaser™ Tube Review
We very much liked the BPS teaser tube. Can use a tube jig head or texas rig with a EWG hook. Had a little more success rigged via the latter. Wouldn't go much larger than a 1/0 sized hook for it.

Great Bedding Bait
I like to fish the tributaries to the susquahana in my kayak and have noticed that these tubes perfectly match the crayfish in the creek where the smallies come up and nest and have also found it not out of the ordinary to catch 18-20 inchers just by dead drifting them over the nests

By far my favorite smallmouth lure. Its the perfect size for fishing in the river. I catch fish when others dont and more fish than others when they are catching some. Its my go to bait for smallmouths in the river. I wont even try to use 3-1/2 or 4 in tubes when i have these. I used the smoke and pumpkin seed colors the most but im sure almost any would work. I use a standard 1/8 colored jig head on low wind days and 1/4 jig on windy days. The cheap jig heads also get unsnagged easily because the hook bends easy. the expensive jigs get hung up and the line breaks before the hook bends.

good little tube
I like working this little tube on small lakes. It works like a charm.

It depends on the fish species, the clarity of the water and outdoor light. This tube is geared toward bass. General rule with bass is match the color of the water. For murky water, go darker. For clearer water go brighter. It sounds a bit backwards, but thats the rule for bass.
I bought some of these tubes along with some 1/8oz bass pro xps tender tube jig heads. It seems like the 3/0 hooks are rather large for these tubes. I also have some 1/8 oz ball jigheads with size 1 hooks, and they seem too small.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
Note: I used these tubes in a small creek with good results! But It seemed like i could not get a very good hookset and lost a few. I think this is because of the hook sizes or possibly my technique.
i share your sentiment on this bait. i rig these up with a 1/0 gamakatsu ewg hook (texas-rigged) ...insert the hook at the top approx. 1/8" and straight out the side. i go through the tenacles vs. the body. i put an unpegged 3/16 oz tungsten weight above it. i hope this helps. don't forget to set the hook on a slack line to maximize the hookset.
There is a 1/16 oz tube jighead here on BassProShops that has a larger hook than the 1/8 oz. I bought both sizes and was surprised that the 1/8 oz hook is smaller. I used the 1/16 oz with the puke color and caught largemouth bass with it.
When using these tubes, I would use a 2/0 EWG hook with a bullet weight or a jig hook that has a weight on the hook. For the bullet weight you should do a texas rig and if you use the jig hook you should slide it up the tube and poke the eye through. After this to fish a tube you should cast it out and let it sink, let it sit for a few seconds and give it a few light tugs and let it sit for another second. If you are in a good area and the fish are there, HOLD on because they will smash this like there no tomorrow.
i fish these tubes the same way as you would fish a regular tube. Just use a jig head and run it through the tube body, or you can use a sinker and run the hook through the body. Then just bounce it off the bottom and wait for it to sink before you work it again and you should see results.
fisha123 I use a 1/8 to 1/4 oz tube jig on these and most other tubes, the weight depends on the depth I'm fishing and the line size. 6 lb test and 1/8 oz is a good starting point. Push the jig all the way in and punch the eye thru the tube and tie it on. I usually do a lift and drop retrieve after the bait reaches the bottom. Good luck and keep a tight line.

i just reel in in mid speed and they will hammer it
I normally rig it with a small 1/4 ounce weighted hook. On the cast I let it sink to the bottom then retrieve it like a jig with short jerks. Normally on the drop is when I get most of my hits on this bait. I hope this helps. I always recast to the same spot at least three to four times to entice a bite.

if you fish in moving water, just let the drag of the line pull it along the bottem.
