Guys what have you found to be the best way to hook meat?

Just let it toughen in the sun a bit then stick it on the hook, usually stays on fine and you just strike through it.

Hair rigged using a Drennan quick stop if theres no snags. In the margins / up against snags I bury the hook in the meat.

I use lumps on hair rig. But I put a bit of anti tangle tube on the hair and that helps stops the line pulling through the meat.

I used to push the hook or pull the hair loop through and then use a piece of grass or reed as a baitstop to stop it pulling back through.

I always use a baiting needle although I'm always fishing the pole & so don't worry about it flying off on the cast. As others have mentioned....a bit of grass under the bend of the hook or a pellet band pulled inside, also works.

Pellet band just pulled through so it expands inside and holds the meat. Never had a problem with it, but tbh either that or hair stop or hooking it you can't go wrong with any of them tbh.
