With the cold weather season, it pays to slow down your retrieve as the metabolism of fish starts to slow. Often monsters will be lerking in deep water during this time of the season. Giant tubes can often tempt these monsters into biting. Monster tubes such as those made by the Red October Bait Company and Lindy Tackle have giant tubes up to 14 inches. These tubes will resemble a ball of baitfish darting and changing direction when slowly retrieving the lure with constant jerks. I have landed a few monster golden dorado on the tubes made by Lindy and plan on trying out the Red October lures on my next visit.
