These beads could be helpful if you are looking to add sound to your Texas rig while night fishing. The added noise may be able to help bass find your lure from farther distances than normal.

They clearly would not reflect light but if you had two of them or one with a weight they would create a clacking noise.

Question

What size for Texas-rig?

What size bead would be good for T-rig with an 1/8 oz bullet sinker? I'm more interested in sound than sight.

The bead should be roughly the same size as the base of the slip sinker you are using.

Question

Swivel with bead C Rig?

Can someone in the know please explain to me why you have to have a swivel. I like to make a quick and adjustable C-rig with those little rubber stoppers to hold the weight and bead at a distance….so why would a swivel benefit me??
Thanks!!

I have used bobber stops as well. You don't have to use a swivel unless you are trolling, then you will see that by design the lizard, fluke, etc. will spin giving you lots of problems with line twist.
I frequently use the rig as you do with bobber stoppers, for quick adjustments, I call it the Modified Carolina Rig and it's quite handy.

Hi, thank you for your inquiry. If you wanted to when you are rigging as a Carolina Rig, you would attach a swivel to the opposite end of the leader length with an improved clinch knot. Tie the line to the swivel through one of the line eyes. Make sure to pull the knot down tightly and trim excess line from the knot.
Slide a bullet weight onto the end of your main line so that the point is facing up the line. Place a metal, glass or plastic bead onto the line below the bullet weight.

Attach the main line to the swivel using another improved clinch knot. The main line will attach to the eye on the opposite side of the swivel to the one used for the length of leader.
