I was looking for that myself awhile ago until I found an easy way to rig my tubes using a weedless jighead. I take an ordinary roofing nail and heat the end with a lighter and use it to make a slit in the tube and insert the jighead through it, once it's rigged up I use the heated nail tip to "weld" the slit closed, works pretty good and it doesn't take long after you do it once or twice.

I use the same technique Smalljaw... those roofing nails do heat up quick...Now I can make the story of this technique a little better saying I learned this from a well known Smallie Fishermen in Tennessee instead of just stumbling onto it myself....Folks are always impressed as the further the person giving the advice lives from you the bigger the expert he becomes...



Hoot never lies about the size of the fish caught but always reserves the right to create legends and tell stories that are a little on the edge..

Your gonna love this one Hoot. You can really give foks that advice on that cause the distance is farther than you think. You learned that information bout the roofing nail from a guy on a Tennessee web site that lives in Pennsylvania.........

Hoot, It's good to see you on the new site. I have been watching for you, but missed your "Welcome" I'm gonna have to go look for it. Don't feel right if I don't get to "welcome" You back.
