Super Glue for crappie tubes

Here is a little tip I use very often. I put just a little dab of super glue on the shank where the barb is on the jig head before I slide the tube up.

Gill I use this little trick to when I can remember to keep the super glue in my tackle box. This trick no doubt doubles the life of a tube skirt and cuts down on the frustration of having to slide the tube back up on the jig head many times a day.
I have heard some ask if the smell would not prevent crappiei bites but I have not found this to be a problem.
My friend Joe Wilson and one of the better crappie fishermen I have had the opportunity to fish with says he thinks it does not hurt the bite a bit and he uses the glue also.

gill & ray, i go to wal-mart to the "women's" cloth abd do-dad section and ask one of the ladies to help me find super glue in the small bottle. I have keep one in my boat and used it over and over without it stopping-up.

Larger, heavier crappiei that really helps out the total weight of a tournament angler's catch. Example: 'I had a limit of 1 1/2-pounders, but was lucky and caught a 2 pound kicker.'
