Bass Pro quality again
I have used the Bass Pro tender 3" tubes for years with great luck. I found the magnum tubes a few weeks ago at my local Bass Pro and thought about giving them a shot. I could not have been happier.
These tubes are coated in a heavy dose of salt. This is great for covering my scent. The tail action on these tubes is great. Lots of action in the water. I found that a good quality 4/0 or 5/0 wide gap hook works great for these. Texas rigged is the way to go with these. I run a 3/16 ounce bullet weight pegged with these tubes and have great luck throwing them with a 7' Heavy or Medium Heavy rod.
I was very impressed with the amount of colors that these tubes come in. There should be a tube for every water or setting you decide to fish. I have been using the grey/black, blue/black and green pumpkin. For central Oklahoma waters, these colors seem to work best for me.
My only real complaint on these, is they are very soft. Its great in that the fish tends to hold on to the bait longer, but I can only average about 4-5 fish per tube. The good thing about a tube is you can rotate it 45 degrees and re-hook. I found I had to do this about every 1-2 fish. With the amount of tubes in the package and the great price on these, its hard to beat.
Give these tubes a shot, you wont be disappointed.

My go to tube
This is a great tube to use on smallmouth and largemouth. Taken my biggest smallmouth of 3lbs on one of these tubes out of a creek. This lure also boated me a 5lb largemouth last summer. All on this size and the puke color.

I have caught my two biggest bass on this Magnum Flippin Tube- a 7.6 and a 6.11 in the same day! Anyway, I've been using a 3/0 Gamakatsu EWG Hook and while it works, it seems like the hook barely fits length wise. Forget about trying to use a 4/0! I'm wondering how ya'll are rigging it for a Texposed and Texas Rigged presentation for flippin/pitchin into trees. Please advise on recommended hook style application. Thanks!
I use the exact same hook you do man, 3/0 Gamakatsu. I always "TexSpose" it. I have to use all of the bait, I mean when I put the hook back in through the bait I'm at the end of the plastic body where the skirt starts, and the hook goes through the body just barely. I then proceed with the texas rig, then tuck the hook back in to the plastic a little bit.
I would go with some of the crustacian colors that the Keys provide. I'm not sure what colors the shrimp or crabs are down there, but that would be a start. When it comes to the Ocean, I would go with bright colors, with a dark contrast. like a light green body with brown or black tentacles.
Any of the goby colors work for most situations I am faced with as long as they have a slight purple color to them. I prefer to fish them on a 1/4 to 1/2 oz. exposed jig head as I am mostly fishing the bottom from 2 feet to over 40 feet deep.
I use only crayfish in the spring and then white or shad in the summer to match the hatch. You cannot go wrong with the jig heads offered by Bass Pro Shops. I use as light a head as I can get away with. You catch more fish with lighter lures.
Watermelon/ red, watermelon/ purple/ gold flake. White or pearl, Black/w red flake and a chartruese tail. Watermelon. Pumpkin seed/ chartruese. I do not use a jig head. I use a True Tungstun weight 3/16 to 3/4oz. on a Gamakgatsu skipping hook. The bait bait will be locked into place on the hook and won't slip down and I peg the tungstun weight with a True Tungstun rubber peg.
Yes you can; Texpose about a3/0 straight shank hook[Owner] possibly!,with a 1/2 oz. to a onne oz. bullet weight on the front of the tube.You can also use a 7 in. to 10 in, or bigger worm riggrd the same as the tube ;but you might also want to try a worm hook from stout 3/0 to 5/0 in heavy cover. Good luck!!
Yes they will work fine for heavy and thick weeds, but you may need heavier weights to get it through the mat. In super thick stuff I use a short grub rigged Texas style, or a pig and jig with a good fiber weed guard. Make sure you trim your weed guard, and spread the fibers out to further protect your hook.
Yes, tubes are an excellent choice especially for heavy cover brush grass or combination of. The tube is a compact lure and very aerodynamic in that with it's compact size and being pegged you have great control for precision flipping and casting. The tube is one of the most versitale baits on the market and the Bass Pro Flipping tube comes in a great array of colors for the what ever water clarity condition you may encounter. And do not hesitate to use a braid in a 50 to 65 pound range with the tube. to get those heads out of that thick cover. I like to flip into brush and try to hang the line over a limb or twig and work the bait with a vertical presentation, 3 or 4 up/down motions of the rod tip from about 10 to 12 o'clock postion and then reel it in and flip to your next spot and repeat and a foot or 2 can make the difference in getting a bite. So work the brush pile over good and don't hesitate to go back into a spot 2 or 3 times before moving on. You may just agitate one into biting after going in there a third time.
