Hi Ian

I always fish it dead-depth, if you fish a float with a long bristle, shot the float so the whole bristle is showing.
The weight of the cat-food should then dot the bristle down.
The only time I'd fish it overdepth is if the lake is towing a bit.

If you want to Hair rig it use a Korum Bait Spike (6 For 1)
i have just started using them and i am very impressed how well the hold the bait on. i used them yesterday and was casting aleast 75 feet with them and the bait stayed on cast after cast.

If you're using a pole and the meat is soft, tie a small cable tie around your pole about 12inches shorter than your rig away from the tip. Dangle your hooklength over the cable tie and ship out. When you're shipped out a small twist of the pole will release the rig into the water and the bait stays on.

Works well with paste also [:)]

When using cat food I hair rig it if Im on the pole and never had a problem.I suppose it depends on which food you`re using though.

I'd recommend the Koshida variety - not only is it cheap but the chunks of meat are just soft enough to strike through but not too soft that it falls off whilst shipping out.
I'd use a size 12 hook for a full-size chunk or a 16 if you slice one in half.

1 tip.........Keep a baitbox of water and a towel on your bait table to rinse your hands,cause the jelly/gravy gets everywhere and it stinks.[}:)][;)]

Ian,

When I hook the meat I tend to cut it through with the line and then slide it down to the hook. This means that when you strike the bait will fall off ensuring you are ground baiting in the vacinity of your hook bait.

Great info, great guys, great fun, thats Maggot Drowners
