Some guys drag a tube bait (tubebait) across the bottom slowly, not Mark Zona. He’s here to give you tips on how to fish a tube the way he fishes a tube, cracking it! Some folks think this is just a smallmouth bass technique. FALSE! Cranking a tube will catch all species of bass. What is cracking /snapping a tube? I’m glad you asked. It may look like he’s just jerking the bait back to the boat frantically, but that’s not what’s going on. In the full video, available at Mark Zona talks about how to work the tube to generate bass bites, how to catch bass while cracking a tube, how to set the hook on a bass and the equipment you’ll need to successfully catch fish with this technique.
