E veryone knows drop shots and small jigs are standard operating procedure for bass. Problem is, the bass know about finesse fishing, too.

Use a fish-finder. You can set the hook as soon as the line goes taut and reel the fish in immediately, or you can allow the fish to run for 5 to 10 seconds keeping the line slack before setting the hook. Yet often times just one or two boats catch fish, while everyone else in the fleet gets skunked. I like to use circle hooks in these situations because it makes the hook setting process simple and easy.

Because the tube is above the bass, it will create a nice silhouette that is very visible to the fish - I believe more visible than a tube that is trolled at the same level or below the level at which the fish are holding. This will prevent the striper from feeling the tension in the eel and becoming spooked. After several lifts I felt a powerful thump that almost pulled the rod from my grip.
