These hold bait good enough to get by. Its kind of hard to get bait inside without making a complete mess, but can be done. I'm not sure if i like the sponge on the end but i guess it doesn't hurt. The treble hook weren't the best quality by no means.

I liked the concept of how this works, But if your fishing anywhere there is current you'll spent more time putting stink bait on these than you are fishing. And when I go fishing I really dont like checking my bait every 10 minutes to make sure its still there.
I think if the holes were smaller it might last a little longer. I ended up putting nylon stockings cut into strips and wrapped them around the outside and tied them off with bread ties. That seemed to help to keep the bait on there for longer.

yellow sponge that covers hook area lasted for one cast. On first retrieval the sponge was gone.

Having used these I would like to say that they will work but the ones in my box are getting dusty as the years go by because I use the small rubber tubes with small holes in them pushed down over the circle hook . These baits are harder to bait up . The tubes are just a little better overall . Also these wont bait up with punchbait worth a darn . Not a problem though cause I only use the dip bait anymore . Good Luck !

I'm new to these catfish lures and dip bait and was wondering if you fish these by reeling them in very slowly or just letting them set in the water until a fish finds them or until the bait comes off?
attach BIG'n to the end of your line and move up the line about 14 inches and add a weight this allows your bait to float up off the bottom. load the BIG'n with stink bait I use a blood bait, I just drop the BIG'n into the tub or jug of bait use a stick and push it around in the bait you will notice it fills up the inside of the mesh tube when full pull out lure and cast it into the water and wait the catfish come to it .
I fish them on a tight line using an egg sinker, That technique seems to work best for me but i know some guys who like to fish them on a slip bobber at night. Either way I like to check the bait every 20 min to see if the hooks still baited.
