Hi lads
Anyone used these? hookless, 10 per pack, and they say ideal for 'freelining'.
Can anyone shed light on this technique and the best way to rig these with a hook - They have no split in the body or anything, so im guessing just hook thru the lip?
I assume i wouldnt need a jighead or such like.. perhaps some lead shot above the eel...?

I use these from the boat for bass.A good quality nickel aberdeen about size 3/0.I thread one onto a baiting needle .I have the hook point sticking out about halfway down the length of the worm.I found the best method is to either freeline or to "jig" them.As you say sometimes i will put a AAA splitshot in front of them sometimes depending on conditions.

I use them from the shore for pollack and bass, pollack mark deep water so fish a running 2oz ledger to a 4ft trace with 4/0 long shank wire Aberdeen, hook straightens if you get stuck in kelp. For bass bubble float to 5 or 6ft trace cast out and twitch back retrieve, stop start style. Thread them on to hook so point comes out about a third down the body.
