Either mount them on a pennel rig or use the fillets for tipping off smaller baits for whiting.

Sprats for bait.

Try mounting the sprats hook through he bottom lip and the line pulled back
towards the fishes tail tie the tail onto the main line.

that way the bait will be taken head first.

Prior to cast slash a line through the fish helps the bait trail .

If long casting use a lot of bait elastic.
when that bait is in the swim make another trace and get it pre baited in readyness.
