Are you talking about the old turkey bone rig? I used to fish this in the sound, way back when. I don't have access to the article you're referring to, so I can't comment on that. I don't see why it wouldn't be effective on the south shore.
It is mentioned in two places:1, the kayaking forum under kayak fishing tournement. Joey2509 "the bait division will include tube and worm which alot of guys will be using". And 2, If you go up to the top of this page and go to magazine and click past issues it is in the Feb issue near the end of the kayak fishing article.
Tomkat the use of an ell tube is very successful rig. Like MakoMatt said he used to use it in the sound. I think thats were its best suited to be used. The tube shouldnt be trolled like a spoon or an umbrlla. The tube is used for an area were u know fish are holding usually under 35 feet. I like to make small slow trolls over good structure . If there are fish around you will have fast and furious action. I and most were I live like to use a light outfit with 20# tied to a planer (which must be used) to get down to 30" then tied to 35 fluro. I personally never used the worms and have great sucess!!!!
up here, north of cape cod , the tube and worm troll is king!
anytime -anywhere- the tube catches em!
without question the number one go to trolling lure.used on lead core trolling line.
the tube is about 25 inches long made from 1/2 inch sergical tubing .
on the hook ,at the back, you attatch a big fat juicy sand worm, the trick is to troll very- very- slow.over productive areas.works every time.
most of the big fish around here are taken on live bait or red tubes!
