OLD FISHIN' TIPSTER'S
TIPS AND TRICKS


Got a question about fishing, that you have never been able to figure out?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.


BEADS AND the CAROLINA RIG

I keep asking Customers why they have the bead below the weight on their Carolina Rig. And, I continually get the answer that it is there as a noisemaker.

WRONG!!! That's so much bull. Someone told them that, and they figured why not try it. But, they did so without really understanding that word 'why'. After the following explanation, 100% of my clients agreed that the value of the bead was NOT as a noisemaker. BUT, you have to pick the RIGHT bead, or you get no value from it.

Here's the REAL story ----- That big heavy sinker makes so much noise on the bottom that, even if the bead did make some tiny sound, it couldn't be heard anyway. Hey, Vern, the reason for the bead is to PROTECT THE KNOT below that weight. Yeah, you know, the knot at the swivel. That weight beats the heck out of that knot, right?!! Gonna fail quick, right?! RIGHT!! The bead is supposed to have a LARGE HOLE in it so that it fits down over the knot. Then, it protects the knot from the sinker.
