I dont like mine to spin. I have better luck when they jig straight and true. I use a round head and jam it up as far as it will go.

Sounds good Hammer but it will certainly suck when those pike bite it off 10 times/day.

Or you lose it to snags.

They should make jigheads with the eye in line with the hook shank.

My open water tube season is over now. I would, however like some for next year. I;d start with $30 worth. 3/8 oz. #2 hook I think. Maybe we can meet up on the ice?

And Slayer..Why are you putting your tube jigs away..one of the best times of the year for tubes...especially if you're a trout guy.
I wont totally put them away, but I go thru 90% of them at 11-mile. It closes in a couple days.

Unless Im fishing 11-mile or up north I dont fish much for trout. Local eyes Ill be hucking metal mostly..

A lot of good trout in Aurora...and they love tubes..
But thats the thing- If Im fishing local waters, or waters that have both eyes and trout I prefer to fish for eyes.

Actually the eyes in Atown like the tubes pretty good also. But unless Im in a boat, Ill be hucking metal off the dam. That lake in Wyo its pretty hard to work tubes in a 25-35MPH breeze!

Havent had my boat on Atown in 2 years.

Yeah, the harder the wind blows ...the heavier the jig. You may have to increase the weight of the tube from a 1/4 or 3/8ths to 1/2 or 5/8ths with that kind of wind...or you'll never see the line twitch or feel the hit on the drop.
Yeah but if you go to heavy its nearly impossible to keep the tube up off the bottom/weeds. If I go 5/8ths Id hafta up my rod and line. **** Dat. Plus I'd hafta practically rip it in =no time for the deadly drop-
