How to Bait a Fish Hook for Saltwater Fishing

Learn how to bait fish hooks from Captain Layne Wagner in this saltwater fishing video from Howcast.


"Hi, my name is Captain Layne Wagner of Hawk One Charters. I've been a captain for over 40 years. I've fished all over the world and now I'm up here in Long Island, New York. You can find me online at Hawk One Charters, I'll be talking to you today about saltwater fishing.

Okay, what I'm gonna show you now is how to bait an artificial bait on your hook. Bait. Hook. You put the hook right through the head of it, go right down the middle until it goes to the circle, bottom of the hook, punch it out, move it up to the eye of the hook, and there it is -- an artificial grub on a hook.

Okay, now what I'm gonna do, is also show you -- imagine this is a real spearing. Spearing. Hook. The same thing -- put it through the mouth of the spearing, come around, and instead, here, you come out his gill, which is right there. Push the hook this way, turn it, through the belly, and up, out. What this does, is it gives it a more natural look.

There's bait and artificial bait. Couldn't hear what the website was."
