Well I use the bead as an attractor. This fish has a perfect hook set in the upper lip. I have caught fish with just the pink worm as well, no bead. I usually run the bead like 2 inches from the hook.
Thx I was just curious. They way i was taught is to have the bead and a hook then about a ft below have the bag n hook.
It really is amazing how many fish bite the bead.
Ive seen a lot of pics lately where guys use em like you, just as an attractsnt above the bag. I just wonder how many fish you miss because they bit the bead and you cant hook them???
