i use a 1/4 oz minimum. i will go heavier depending on how active the fish are. when i am fishing a tube, i like to get it to the bottom and keep it there. im not saying using a 1/8 oz head is bad. not at all, but i have played with all sizes and found my comfort zone to be 14 to 38 oz. thse two sizes pretty much cover everything i need to do. i will go heavier on very windy days, or if i am fishing deeper ( 20 ft or more). once in a great while i fish a tube like a minnow. in this case, i will use a 1/8th oz. but i rarely fish a tube like this.

best advise i can give you is play around and find what you are most comfortable throwing. if you are throwing a 1/4 oz and constantly getting hung up, get rid of it. the more you get hung up, the less time you are effectivly working your tube, plus this will only destract you and lower your confidence level. if 1/8 is what you like, use it. dont worry about what other guys are using. just remember, the lighter the tube, the easier it is for the fish to inhale, be quick with your hooksets or you will have some bleeders.

in that instance you could have thrown your show lace out there and cought a fish. but anything that would mimic a fleeing baitfish, a spinnerbait, jerkbait ( hard or soft), tube, etc. cant go wrong
