Techniques for Fishing with PRO-CURE Bait Scents, Attractants, and Bait Brines (1810 words)
Start by placing your top hook into the body cavity at the 9 o'clock position (left side of the spine) and carefully working the hook through the spine so that it comes out the short side of the bait between the 12:30 and 2:30 position.
If this top hook is placed too deeply into the body cavity it creates a 'hinge' point, and you get a roll where the head of the bait is rolling in a 2 or 3 inch circle, and the tail is rolling in a wide 6 to 8 inch circle.
Note how shallow the top hook is into the baits body cavity, and that the trailing hook measures between the notch of the tail and the tip of the tail.
