Anybody use it? I'm considering getting some primarily to help keep softshell crab and shrimp on the hook.

Everyone who throws fresh clam or ties on softies uses it

Any fabric type store has it for cheap

Great tip!  Never heard of them.  Like what I see. 

 

Ordered some thread and some rigs.  

Quite fair on shipping too

Their sputnik sinkers with the clip are great! shipping is pretty fast

I don't why more people over here don't use clipped down rigs. Really is an improvement.  Not just in distance, but how well the bait stays hooked while flying to its destination. 

 

I really wish we had a baitfishinh sub here.  But we get poo'd on for it. 

 

 

One thing I saw I liked was their pompano rigs.  Single & double hook.  Various floats. I  My arthritis in my hands makes me miserable tying rigs.  So I know bite the bullet and buy them.

I agree. We are not all pluggers.

I'm about to sell all my plugs. 

Just don't use em. 

Really only throw metal. Bait when I don't have the energy.

I'm primarily bait with some plastics and metal. But I fish mostly in Hatteras for pompano, whiting, and trout so plugs don't really work for me.

When bait fishing. I use it all the time.  Buy rolls by the dozen. Leave them in bags. In the car. Etc.   Even as simple as cut bunker.  Thread circle once through to bury it. expose hook tip.  Thread it up. Never coming off even with power casting. 
 

the fun part is that you can mix and match baits.  As long as you can wrap it on there. You’re good.   Cut fish and worm? Clam inside a fish fillet?  Chicken? It’s fun.

I used to make bait sacks out of nylon stockings as a kid when using frozen or mushy bait

I use muslin bags for slow chum dispersal and to keep the bait centered in minnow traps
