I don't understand why you would want that slip sinker to slip all the way down to your jig/hook. But he caught gills so it does work.
Fisherman's Prayer I pray that I may live to fish Until my dying day And when it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray: When in the Lord's great landing net And peacefully asleep, That in His mercy I be Judged BIG ENOUGH TO KEEP.
Chris has been fishing gills like that for years. The bell sinker helps him get the 2lb test line down fast fishing straight down. Really helps in the wind. The bell sinker also helps in brush piles. I use a real small crappie jig tipped with wax worm. Both work great. Been frying a bunch up the last few weeks.Thanks
