When fishing the oft-dirty waters of South Carolina, sometimes you need to draw a little more attention to your baits. I rig up glass beads from costume jewelry to increase my strikes. The large beads are loud in the water and heavy enough to use alone without lead if the current is not too strong. If you get dragged around to yard sales on a Saturday morning, don’t dread the outing: Take advantage of the great deals you can get on beads that no one else is fishing.
