HOME-MADE BAIT SOCKET

Being quite a novice at the fishing game I like to have a number of different kinds of bait, so I make them during the winter months. One of the propositions I ran up against in making my own baits was some method of securely fastening the treble hooks to the bait and after unsuccessfully trying to buy some screw eyes such as are used on the “regular” baits, I finally hit on the following scheme:

I bought a box of screw eyes and a box of stationer’s aluminum eyelets. Then bored a hole in the minnow just the size of the eyelet and put in the eyelet until the ridge came down to the bait and drove it flush with a hammer (Fig. 1). I took a screw eye and with a pair of pliers bent the eye slightly on one side (Fig. 2). Then put on the treble hooks and screwed them into the bait in the usual fashion. I used one of these home-made baits on my vacation trip and of a total of twelve strikes did not lose a fish due to the hooks pulling out.
