    Thawed out bait a couple days old that won't stay on the hook works good at times that way but if there just nibbling it doesn't work very good.
    I use mine with j-hooks so I can set the hook.

    Definitely not stupid. Works great when fishing for channels with small baits.

    While fishing for carp, I've caught more than enough catfish to know that hair rigs work on cats. It's really not necessary though.
