    Owner mosquito vrs baitholders

    For Perch, I use 6lb test, # 4-#6 mosquito hooks and 2" sandworms in camo, red, and new penny. Usually cut the 6" worms into 2" pieces if I cant find the 2" ones

    Also, I just pin them through, instead of threading the bait on. Haven't had too many problems.

    Owner mosquito vrs baitholders

    Owner mosquito hooks do not have the barbs on the shank of the hook. I like the mosquito hooks because they stay sharp, and are light so the sandworm can swim albeit a tiny bit. They also don't seem to rust as fast.
