Tubes are great for smallmouth bass and largemouth bass. Most anglers prefer to use the tubes for smallies over largemouths, but both species of fish will eat these baits.
Rod, Reel & Line
Tubes are usually fished on lighter line for smallmouth bass, but you can go with heavier tackle for largemouth bass too. Other fish will hit a tube, but most anglers target largemouth and smallmouth bass with them.
