    I never have used a Yo-Yo, but always did like the way they made things more efficient.

    Take a few pictures of yours rigged up if you could.

    i have seen yoyo's get "sprung" and ruined on 5lbers in a pond. I am sure that if it is tied to a small tree limb that is limber then it would be OK for something bigger. I just never really seen the benefit over a limb line with or without an inner tube shock absorber.

    James, I think crappie may have been the main fish in mind with the yo-yos. I have caught a lot of crappie and white bass on them and also eater channels, but I use only minnows for bait.
