Power Stroking Tubes for Smallmouths

When many bass anglers think of fishing a tube for smallmouths, small to medium sized tubes presented in depths of 10 feet or less and a slow, subtle presentation come to mind.

So if fishing waters where smallies stage on deeper water structure and cover, try power stroking big tubes jigs to connect with some of the biggest bass in your waters!
