Early in the season or pre-season, I fish smaller Gitzit tubes t-rigged with a 1/16 oz bullet weight. I fish this on spinning 6' rod with 6 or 8lb test. In the warmer months I t-rig tubes on my baitcaster with 1/8 to 3/8 oz bullet. I fish these in open water and pitch in heavier cover. I have been using the Strike King tubes for these applications.
