    HI but now WA
    Aloha! Well I'm up to fish Nu'uanu Resevoir again and the only bait I could get is frozen sardines. How would you toughen them up to stay on the hook? I was going to just cut them up and heavily salt them over night but is there a better way?

    You could always wrap them in nylon stalkings or cheese cloth like I do with chicken livers. I might have to try using sardines as they do come in oil, mostly that would put out a good trail.
