Trapper Tackle is pleased to present new VITAL Series Plastics from Zee Bait, exceptional baits for use with our hooks.
Made from a unique plastic blend, lightly salted for incredible movement and durability, these made-in-the-USA baits feature Zee Bait's anise scent.
Tubes are an incredibly under-rated bait, but the savvy angler will find them indispensable. Used well, they can be effective in just about any body of water on most any day of the year, and are offered in cool colors you can match to whatever local conditions you encounter.
For a weedless presentation, thread a wide gap hook through the nose and secure the hook into the body on the outer wall of the tube.
When cast, the tube will spiral on the fall with the tentacles undulating, giving an injured baitfish look. In jigging the tube off the bottom it imitates a crawfish, making it especially effective for feeding smallmouth bass.
Tubes can be rigged as bait using a Texas Rig, Carolina Rig, or on a dropshot rig. For a flipping technique, try them on our x-heavy offsets. However you use them, adding our award-winning Trapper hooks will ensure your best results!
