Slide the hook down 5-6 inches (13 cm) away from the head. Place the head of the bait fish snugly into the cavity of the plastic head making sure the back of the bait is on the same side as the leader exit hole. See Fig. 1


Inserting the Plastic Pin
With bait held tightly into head cavity, insert the plastic pin into the large back hole. Round or flat toothpicks can be used in the smaller hole if required.

Placing the Hook
While holding the bait fish, insert the hook into the side of the bait below the rear of the dorsal fin. Set the hook in dark area with the hook shank lying flush against the bait . See Figure #2


Pulling the Curve
Hold the plastic head in one hand & carefully pull a curve into the bait (towards the hook side). The curve should be "even" below the hook. If the bait does not revolve or for slower trolling - pull additional curve into the bait. If the bait revolves to quickly or for faster trolling - hold the plastic head with one hand while pulling back on the hook with the other hand. This will decrease the curve in the bait. To obtain the perfect roll ~ slight adjustments may be required. Sample your bait at your correct trolling speed. As you dip your gear below the surface, study the roll of the bait. If you are using the Bait Head in conjunction with a flasher, the leader length will also affect the action.


The toothpick

In order to hold the correct curve in the bait, a rear line bolster in the head acts as a tension device (area to jam the line) . The line travels through the bolster and at this point is designed to accept a simple wooden toothpick. When the tapered toothpick is pushed into the hole running parallel & beside the line it creates enough hold or tension to stop the hook from pulling the bait. The toothpick is crucial to keep the hook back at the center of the bait fish. Once inserted, the toothpick should be broken off flush with the bolster. (Troll the bait from the nose, not from the hook) Replacement toothpicks should be kept as these are frequently replaced.

Special Tips:
Brining your bait in ultra violet and or herring oils overnight can increase your luck.
Always use firm, straight, bright bait, keep moist & cold
Keep the toothpicks dry until you use them.
Keep hooks sharp.
For best results, use behind a trolling flaser.
