beads for crappie rigs
« on: Dec 08, 2005, 08:34 AM »
I usually add a small bead between my trebel (size 12)  and sinker on my tipup  when fishin for crappie

red,yellows, white and oranges seem to be most effective

what do you all use?

If I use a bead or beads, I almost always stick with red.  Looks like an eye or a blood spot, IMO.

I use sizes from 1/4in to 1in red and white beads on my tipups-more bass on whites and more pickerel and crappie on red
