Mastering Smallmouth Bass with Angler’s Choice Ammo Tubes

Written by Ryan Miller

Hey fellow anglers! 🎣 As a proud member of the Angler’s Choice Pro Staff, I'm excited to share some insights on one of my go-to baits from Angler’s Choice: the Ammo Tube. The exceptional soft plastics from Angler’s Choice that have elevated my game, whether I'm fishing the vast waters of the Great Lakes or hitting my favorite local spots.

Why I Love the Ammo Tube Over the years, tube baits have earned a permanent place in my tackle box. Their unique design and versatility make them a must-have for targeting smallmouth bass. These baits perfectly mimic the natural prey of smallmouth, such as gobies, crawfish, and baitfish, which is crucial for enticing those stubborn bass.

Dominating the Great Lakes Fishing the Great Lakes presents its own set of challenges, from the varied underwater structures to the often unpredictable conditions. Angler’s Choice tube baits rise to the occasion every time. Their soft yet durable plastic can take a beating, which is essential when you're after those big, hard-fighting smallmouths. One of my favorite techniques is drifting and dragging these tubes along the bottom with a heavier jig head. This method creates maximum disturbance on the lake bed, mimicking prey scurrying around and triggering aggressive strikes from bass. It’s especially effective for covering large areas and locating schools of smallmouths.

Versatility Beyond the Great Lakes But don’t think for a second that these tube baits are only for the Great Lakes. I’ve had incredible success using them in rivers as well. Their adaptability makes them ideal for various water conditions and bass behaviors, no matter where you’re fishing.

My Favorite Rigging Techniques 1. Texas Rig: Perfect for heavy cover, letting you fish through weeds and brush seamlessly. 2. Carolina Rig: Excellent for deeper water, allowing the bait to glide naturally above the lake bed. 3. Jig Head: Ideal for bouncing along the bottom, mimicking a crawfish or goby.

Tips for Success - Match the Hatch: Pay attention to the local forage. On the Great Lakes, greens and browns mimic gobies and crayfish perfectly. Whether is the 2.8 or the 3.75. - Vary Your Retrieve: Sometimes a slow, steady pull works best, while other times, erratic twitches can trigger strikes. - Focus on Structure: Smallmouths love structure. Target rocky points, drop-offs, and underwater ledges where bass like to hide.
