I rig mine with the jig inside, when I am pitching from shore I move the lead to the very top of the tube, if I am verticle jigging I but a inch gap in the front of the jig leaving a small air pocket. I also prefer the Carolina Rig versus the Texas rig.

Why, Rick?
Since you werent specific I will give the reasons for each.
Jig inside the tube - I am usually trying to imitate crayfish, with the weight inside it makes the tube sit more like a crayfish on the ground tenticles up and when jigged it pops up then settles back to the same position moving the teticles.
Verticle jigging with a gap in the front of the tube - This causes the tube to spiral when it falls creating more action and mimicing a wounded fish.
Why I prefer Carolina rig is I have lived in N. Carolina and not Texas.... just kidding (not about living there about thats why i prefer it). The weight in a carolina rig is above the swivel and a glass bead in between them both... When jigged the weight hitting the bed attract the attention of the fish the weightless tube behind settles at the speed of the river or at its own weight in a lake which gives it a longer ation time then a Texas rig which gets sucked to the weight. I just seem to have better luck fishing it this way.

Did that answer your question?
