Default plastics

Ok so i'm pretty new to the soft plastics game and this year i am planning on fixing that. But i'm really not sure where to start with it. Senkos and tubes, from what i've read on all these posts, produce really well when rigged the right way. Can anyone give share some tips on the best ways to rig them up and how to work em?

searching for that next bite!

When fishing tubes, especially on the bottom, think crawdad. Sounds silly but that is the best adivce in the world. Start in shallow enough water that you can see the tube. Learn to work it in the same manner a crawdad moves. Even when you retrieve it to the boat, swim it in the same manner a crawdad flees from a fish.
About 90% of the pike I have caught on tubes is when I pick it up off the bottom and start swimming it back to the boat.
