Sporting a classic tube shape, Strike King®'s Coffee Tubes are enhanced with real coffee bean granules and coffee bean oil to give the tubes an earthy tinge and a naturally strong scent/taste big bass are eager to slurp up. Not only does the coffee scent/flavor entice and encourage fish to hold the bite longer, it also works to mask human scents. They are salt-impregnated too!
The 3-1/2'' Coffee Tube has a hollow head and is most effective when rigged with an internal tube jighead for dragging, jigging, or fishing structures with the hook exposed.
The 4-1/2'' Coffee Tube has a solid head and a hollow body. Great on a Texas rig for flipping and pitching.
Work in Progress
I have seen Coffee Tubes used numerous times on Flats Class to catch Red Fish. I have had three days to fish these lures. The material is awesome, STRONG. Hooked into a good sized Jack. It came out in new condition. The jig head had to be replaced but the Coffee tube was in tack. The only suggestion is purchase the Strike King Jig head along with this product.(available from Bass Pro Also) Seems to hold better with the longer barb other wise the coffee tube starts to slide back from jig head. Nothing a bit of super glue wouldnt fix if I had it on the boat that day.
Like to test these out a bit more but they have showed good promise. Need better weather conditions than the first 3 times. I'm sure they will produce. Will update with pics when they do...See you soon.

Best Tube Ever
i have caught tons of bass on it and all were 2 lbs or more on Seneca lake and at a couple other places in louisana

This is the best tube or soft bait I have used. I recently caught a 5+ lb large mouth and a 23" walleye on the same tube. I think the coffee flavor is what makes the difference.

I don't use the tube jig hooks. They get hung up too easily, and are a pain to rig. Just rig it texas rigged with a 3/0 offset worm hook and a 1/16-1/4oz bullet weight... lighter weight for slower fall.
you need to throw it over the cover and reel it in to the cover. i have actually done this before and i almost caught a fish on every cast. in my my private pond there is stick ups everywhere and i have filled my pond with largemouth,smalliesblue catfish and bluegill. my pond is 30 feet deep in one spot and is usually about 50 degrees.
You can fish it texas with a wide gap hook and a sliding worm weight, or purchase BPS EZ tube weights which places the weight inside the tube. I prefer the EZ because I don't like weight exposed, but try both. They will have very different actions.
At you local Bass Pro Shop store or on their website. They come in many sizes to fit any application that you are looking for. Heavy for thick cover or lighter weight for cases when you just want to fish them in open water.
Unfortunately, the Strike King Tube Jigheads are currently not available. However, we do offer a number of other branded tube jigheads including a few of our own Bass Pro Shops Tube Jigheads. To locate these and more, do a product search for "tube jighead".
I use a Gamakatsu EWG 3/0 hook and use what I call a semi Texas rig. The 3/0 hook is just the right length to allow the point to pass through the tenticles and not the body then come up the other side where I just skin the point, makes for an eaisier hook set in my opinion.
Use internal jigheads to fish any type of tube. The jigheads come in many weights and sizes depending on what type of cover you happen to be fishing. You can find these jigheads here on the Bass Pro Shop website or at you local Bass Pro Shop store.
I've used these for Inshore Red fish. Suggestion is to rig with a small (#2 or #3) split ring on the jig head for bettter action. I also added scent. I havent tried to double the lure because of shallow water fishing I've done. Hope this helps a bit.
Yes a tube can be Texas rigged. I would use a wide gap hook that will fit the size tube you are going to fish. When fishing a Texas rigged tube I like to keep the bait compact so I peg a bullet weight, or use a XPS E-Z Tube Weight. XPS aslo makes Finesse Tube Jigheads, and Weedless Tube Heads. A simple round ball jighead will work as well.
