Reversed skirt tube
« on: 07/10/21 16:41 UTC »
Has any one Stuck the head in the tail and the hook point out the front so it like a skirted jig with out a tail.i will probably give it a much faster fall but a totally look on the way up with the skirt flailed .

I have not tried it, but it could be just the ticket at times.  My mental image would be similar to a fly called the Reversed Spider.  It works very well in moving water for trout.

Have a bud from a different forum who suggested I put part of a plastic worm into the tube hole and reverse hook. He says he has caught bass with it.

Back in the 70's I use to put a twin tail on the jig hook and then put the tube on the regular way. Looked a lot like a crawfish and the twin tail created a air pocket up towards the front of the jig; so the fall was slower and the jig would ride up off the bottom.

It did a good job. Fish would hit it very hard. I think they thought it was a crawfish. Caught both largemouth and smallmouth on it. First you would rig the tube, then I would put some worm oil or scent on the twintail so it would be easier to get it in the tube.

One guy would put foam ear plugs inside for buoyancy.
