Tired of losing live baits as they wiggle their way off hooks or get short-bit by finicky fish? If you’d rather soak a sardine than a bare hook at 400 feet, try this: After you hook a live bait, poke a cheap sequin over the barb to lock on the baitfish. It keeps the bait from wriggling loose or falling off, and you can easily buy hundreds of sequins for pennies at hobby stores. Works for me!
