I am assuming your talking about lug worm if so i find using a bait needle damages the worms less its quick and handy especially if putting on two or three worms if you do not have a baiting needle try using a long shanked hook like an aberdeen patteren and carefully thread the worm onto the hook head first take your time and you won't damage the worm you can remove the tail first if you like once you've done this a couple of times it will come easier.


hope this helps
cheers funkel

Yes use a baiting needle, but make sure its a blunt one rather than sharp.
The Gemini ones are very good.
