    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.
    TIA,

    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.
