Finesse means thinner walled and more action (lighter line presentations) and you have your flipping tubes which have thicker noses.

The tentacles will flare out and close up again with the twitches, emulating an octopus or squid pretty well as well. (stroking a tube bait)

A good sharp twitch on the bottom gives it a good darting action along the bottom. Looks very much like running bait (goby/craw) going from cover to cover.  (snapping a tube bait).

This idea has caught me. Spotties are primarily crustacean feeders and a tube bait squirming around on the bottom is more like a shrimp or crab, especially something like the crawling tube baits from Get Bit Baits.

I've got some tubes and 60 degree heads on order.

I think most people out there in the bays are using small fish like baits and presentations. Something different is definitely worth a try. I've played around with creature baits and caught a few fish, but I've never had the confidence to really work them. Your experience with tubes is great inspiration to give tubes a serious trial.

Thanks again for the great info!

I just spoke to Dan Elsner, owner of GetBit Baits that specializes in tubes. He is open to discussing with us the benefits of using tubes and how it can help. Are people interested in this?

The site is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I just placed an order to give their stuff a try. Figure it was well worth the investment in learning new baits and should add to my arsenal in pulling up those spotties.

I'd be interested in a thread on this or a webinar if we can swing it.

Same here. I have been loving my tube baits for fishing pilings. Any info from a bait maker would be awesome!

If you look at their pro staff they are all freshwater bass fishermen, as you would expect. We all know that's where the money is in fishing.

Give yourself a year and I'll bet you could be their pro staff saltwater guy.

I remember many years ago there was a 6 inch "tube Worm" that had the typical feelers at the end of about an inch and a half long. The color I bought was an orangish-brown. I remember thinking at the time it would be a great worm to use in Newport Bay where I usually launched my little 12 foot aluminum boat off the east end of Park Avenue on Balboa Island. I used a small 3/16 oz sliding sinker and a 2/0 or 3/0 worm hook, and my usual red Garcia Ambassador 5000 loaded with 12 lb test Stren monofilament on my Fenwick 1255 "Lunkerstik" rod. I caught lots of Barred and Spotted Sand Basss and a few nice halibuts working it and drifting through the eelgrass, Caught a couple nice White Seabass, but none were legal size. I wish I could remember the name of that plastic tube worm. It worked pretty good in freshwater for Largemouths too. I may still have a couple laying around in an old tackle box out in the garage.
