What is the optimal way to bait the bug with the double hooks? I used one for the first time in April for bluefish (unsuccessfully) using mullet fillets through both hooks, but was unsure if it was hindering the flutter.
You rigged it correct. I try to keep the strip no more than a couple inches longer than the hair. I also trim it up neat. I cut the top corners off so its pointed and sometimes fillet off some of the meat so its not to heavy and I split the tail. The extra buoyancy of the balsa makes these work a little better than the foam ones.
