    for those who use plastic for crappie, do you use jigs with barbs to help hold you plastic. are do you just use the ball and plain hook.?

    I use the ones with the small barbs. They seem to help hold the tube on better.If you are having trouble with fish ripping the tubes off, a simple fix that works great and saves your tubes most of the time is to super glue the tube to the jig.I always do this when fishing for white bass. Hope this helps. Allen

    When I use a small jig I put the ball type inside the tube. Big jigs I use spiked ones. A drop of super glue helps alot keeping the tube on the spiked jig.
