Strike King Flip-n-Tube
these are great lures, they are really good for flippin (probably why they are called flippin tubes). I like the junebug color and I flip it into pads or wood and I watch my line the whole time. I let it sink to the bottom, hop it up about 1 inch off the bottom and let it sink again. Watching my line this whole time, I just do that a few times, and flip back in. Great techinque that catches big bass.

Flippin tube !
I like the design that Strike King put into these flippin tubes. The solid rubber head comes in handy for holding your hook in place or if you want to use a screw & lock hook also. I usually toss these in thick vegetation to try and entice those lunker bass to strike. These tubes have solid weight to them so they will fall through that thick matted grass. Strike King offers plenty of colors for any application you might need them for. I like the bleeding tubes because the tails are a blood red color and I get good results from them. Buy some, you will not regret it !!!!!

I've caught fish on this tube, but to me it doesn't last long. If you fish in heavy cover and aren't getting many bites, you still have to throw a new tube on pretty regularly. If you catch a fish, you might as change it then. Like many baits today, it's too impregnated with salt and looses its weight, color, and texture fast in the water. You can catch fish with this bait, but many tubes, even cheaper ones, are more effective and less frustrating.

FLIPPIN NITEMARE is right these are great for fishing the spawning bass on there beds and flippin. texas rigged is the best try to rig weightless but if wieght is needed i usually dont go over a 1/4 oz or a 2/0 hook try to get as close as u can to a crawfish color or for the big smallmouth try anyhting goby really anything black, blue, watermelon or a shad color is the best. get two packs there worth it.
