Hey, folks. Glenn May here at BassResource. com. And if you’ve watched my videos for a whilenow, you know that I don’t like to have one-trickpony tackle in my boat. Now, what I mean by that, the thing is say,for example, O-rings for wacky rigging orspecialty jig hooks, things like that thatjust take up space. Certain specialty weights, specialty typeof tackle that you can only use when you’redoing a certain kind of fishing, for the mostpart, I don’t like. I like versatility. I like to make things work for a variety ofthings, for me. That way it’s more useful and I’m not carryinga whole bunch of stuff in the boat. So, what I want to talk to you a little bitabout is what I used to have for two baits,this right here. What I used to do. . . there’s a type of sliderweight that you can get, that weight thatyou put inside of this that gives it an internalweight. The problem is that it’s a specialty weight. You only got one use for it and it takes upweight and space in my tackle box. Well, one day, I was putting them away, andmy wife saw this and I’m not gonna say she’sthe originator of this idea but it’s a brilliantidea. But she was looking at the drop shot weight,that’s one of these right here, a little dropshot weight. She was looking at that and said, “You knowwhat?I think I got an idea. Why don’t we put that on the inside of thetube?”Well, I thought about it and this is whatwe came up with. So, I got a. . . This is a hook. This is a high-performance hook. This has got a wire clip on here that holdsthe bait in place. I got a link to it in the bottom of the descriptionso you know what this is. Well, what you wanna do is there’s a littleopening in here and you want that hook togo right through. Well, the problem when you first get theseout of the package is it’s hard to get themto get in there, it’s very tight. So, once you get them in there what you firstwanna do is pull them apart. I’m literally pulling like that. Now, when you do that the hole. . . it’s hardto tell but it’s a little bit bigger. A little bit bigger and that’s all you need. Now, the hook can go in here really easy. See, I’m not forcing it. Now, it just slides right in, okay?That’s what you needed to do. Pull it apart more if you need to but thatopens it up just a little bit. Now, what I do is I take a little bit of scenthere, it’s a gel scent. I just put a little bit on just for good measure,just a little bit on there. What that does is this gives a little bitof lubrication. That way I can fit it in here a lot easier. I just smeared on the inside of this tubejust like this and I flip it around. So, I’ve got. . . this is the wire part firstand put that in here and now that lubricationmakes it really easy. I just stick it all the way up. Now, it’s at the very end of it. Now, you need to thread the hook through thathole that we made. Hole is right here. First thing you wanna look at is how is thisgonna sit on a bait. It’s gonna sit like this. Notice the shank, the angle of the shank. Your hook point has got to go in at that angle. That’s critical to making this work right,which is perfect because when you bring yourhook pointed like that, it goes right intothat wire right there. I just felt that. I don’t know if you heard a little clickwhen it went in, but…and you bring it through,flip it around here. Now, you’ve got this little wire, bring itup past the wire just like so. It’s a tight fit sometimes. There you go. And then you just clap the wire right on theshank of the hook. There just like that. See, it holds it in place now. Now, you just need the hook to go right inand lay flat on the top just like so. Now, you got yourself a weightless tube baitwith an internal weight. Now, why do you wanna do that?Why is that important?Well, if you’ve done the other ways of riggingthem with a jig, with an exposed hook, witha weight in the front or a say, for example,a bullet sinker, the problem with that isthey tend to get hung up, especially in rocks,or wedge into rocks, they’ll wedge intothe crooks of branches, weeds, in the littleV-part of lily pads. They’ll get hung up all the time. When you’ve got a rig like this, now you’vegot yourself an all-terrain four-wheel drivevehicle of tube base. You can literally throw this anywhere andalmost every time it’s gonna come back out. What that means is that now you can go inwhere the bass are hiding and dig them out. You can throw it into thicker cover, intothicker bush, go in where the big fish are,get more bites, you’re gonna catch more fishand you’re gonna be more successful with tubebaits. I hope that helps.
