I use glass rattles when I fish bucktail jigs for striped bass or weakfish but often lose the rattles. But not since I made the rattle part of the lure. Take a small piece of rubber tubing used for air hoses in aquariums and wet it. Slide it onto the hook shank of a bucktail jig and then slide the glass rattle underneath the tubing and above the hook bend. The tubing holds the rattle in place even after a heavy strike.
