Stupid Tube Jig..is.... Not stupid! LOL
« on: January 01, 2018, 11:09:01 AM »

I'm making a round head mold to pour 28* EWG jig hooks in various weights. 1/8, 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 oz and 3/0 Mustad Ultra Point hooks. The round head makes rigging them much eaier. This hook makes for a more forward line tie and less weed catching.

So far I'm really happy with them.. I'm excited to use them soon.  :)

I tried my hands at plastic once years ago....  :o  Not for me... So I make everything else and trade with those that make custom plastic.  I buy very little from the normal places.... I'm not normal.  :P

I've heard that... ;D

Funny that someone brought up the 'stupid' rig Thursday or Friday so we had to borrow a tube from the neighbors along with a jighead to rig one up to show people. Had it sitting on the table the rest of the show. I admit we had to ask one of the college anglers to rig it for us because I couldn't remember what the heck the 'stupid' rig was... ::)

Your jigheads look pretty darn good for that rig. Not sure if and when I will ever try it myself.

I gave some to as friend that fish's the hot pond with me all winter. He fished these with 100% hook up ratio. And 100% no snags.... He is now a believer too.  :)

The slider baits above wont rig right on the stupid tube head. They have 3/8-1/2in of solid body where the lead goes.  :-\'

Just tool yourself a mini melon scooper and scoop that solid part out of there... Something like that.

I've actually wondered how I would handle similar with the few tubes I own that have a solid head.

I think Lake Fork Tackle makes a craw tube that might work.

They look pretty good, I just need to know if it's hollow all the way to the head. I like all their color options too. http://www.lftlures.com/catalog/lft-craw-tube

I scrapped the first mold... Made a new one tonight... I'm super happy with these... 1/8, 1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 oz



  Hey Mike,  Just curious, why do you like the second mold better.  Another question, ummmm are stores selling jig heads under the stupid tube name??  LOL

My new mold has the eye closer to the lead, Has 4 better size choices.

We caught over 180 bass today using these stupid tube jigs.... Biggest was 4.3lbs. My arms are sore...... Going again tomorrow.  :)

Yes... Secret Lures sells the "Stupid Tube Jig"  Glad you watched the videos.
