I fished it just the way it is and it worked ! As a matter of fact outfished a buddy 2 to 1 and he was using reg crappie hook and a minnow I am confident that this is a rig i will continue to use .

The hooks are no 6 and no4 Mustad ,the beads are Miyuki glass seed beads for attractant.

I watched a you tube video and a guide on the Chippewa  Flowage was using a very similar set up with a glow bead .maybe 4mm. They were fishing it under a bobber with a split shot . The jig hook  was horizontal . With live bait minnow hooked through the lips up through  the nostrils , they said the crappies will be hooked in the mouth rather than the lips. And from what i watched it was very effective.

While personally I wouldn't use that setup on live bait. People twitch for gills and crappies all the time using small bobbers and tiny jigs. Most thread on small micro plastic such as gulp minnows, pretty effective in shallow water. A non weighted  hook would  give you a  slow drop if that's one is looking for. A micro split shot can always be added to the line.

Seeing this is a pan fish thread the picture might be a little misleading. He might be thinking about slipping a bead onto a small jig hook such a #6,8,or10. If you super-glue it over the bend, or add small plastic, I suppose that would work? Innovation and different ideas is what makes fishing so great.

I’m not sure I follow....

You are using a jig hook, only there isn’t a lead head.

I don’t get it
