    What bait holder works best for punch bait. They say to use a treble hook but i do not like using them,so what are other good rigs/hooks to use?

    Could you just take a circle hook and dip it in?

    Or is there anything else that would work.

    I use size 4 trebbles and dunk it into DK's and shape it into a ball. Kind of like power bait. That's how I use my punch bait:wink:

    you can buy J hooks with the springs on them that will work and hold the bait .or take an old pen apart and take the spring from it and wrap it around whatever hook you want.you can even cut the spring to whatever size you want.

    Take a look at Team Catfish Mini Furry Thang you can put it on any hook. Works great with punch bait during the hot summer months.

    something new i been doing is using cheese clothe and making balls then using khale hook. its time consuming, but the bait last longer and stays on the hook.
