There are a variety crayfish imitation baits out there but it’s hard to beat a tube rigged on a heavy jig head. Wired2Fish’s Kyle Peterson demonstrates how to fish a tube on a jighead by “stroking” and bouncing the bait off the bottom. The head falls fast, causing the tube to flair and mimic a backward-scurrying crayfish. Moving the bait quickly triggers reaction strikes from tentative fish. This technique shines in windy conditions, and in shallow and deep water alike.
