    I think I like this guy already, unless he is also a blatant product endorser.

    Yo Dustin, I have a friend that uses hevi beads all the time and he said they are going to be putting out some new designs that are specific for chum.

    Have you tried any of these new ones?

    Just curious because the rumor was they might make em scented. If figured that shrimp would be a given but if Tuna Oil were on the list I might be heading over to Dick's to pick up a few.

    I'm on a BOAT! There really isn't a huge need to get down that much when you essentially side drift.

    if they are made of glass they will break. I've been using glass beads for years, but I've moved back to plastic, because of the breakage. While the drifts are better the same result can be had from pegging your bead above a weighted nymph, or a hook with some leader tied dropper style off the bend and a split shot on it. Sometimes this makes a difference, but usually not.
