blacks

Post by andy1_i »

can anyone tell me the proper way to bait up with blacks on a pennel? ive just been putting them on like normal lug but only half way then folding the other half up and elasticing it on,in effect doubling it sort of.

thanks

If youre using defrosted frozen blacks easiest way is to thread them onto a baiting needle then elasticate them and then slide them onto your hook length

Hi Andi, I do it the same way as you describe, Half the worm up the main hook, then fold it over onto the top hook, and elasticate it, makes a chunkier bait, and less likely to slip down over the hook tip. Cheers..Mick

Yeah - just bang it on without any care or thought towards neat presentation- you could just mush it all up into a big snotty ball and stick it on a 10/0- :((

turboman,not being petty (ok maybe i am).

my bait "presentation" isnt too bad,i do a ribbon and bow with my bait lacky and maybe a couple of squid tentacles for dangly bits.

oh dont forget the fact that the bait looks good on the hook but gets battered in the drink,oh god im getting pedantic.

but will try the "snotty ball on a 10/0" anything is worth a try.

tight lines fella,and may COD shine upon you ;)
