How to Put Dough Bait on a Hook
Traditionally, you would use a small treble hook with something like power bait. But, if you want to be able to release the fish if its too small or for whatever reason, then it would be a better idea to use a single hook instead. All you do is mold the bait around the hook. To keep the bait on the hook longer you can wrap some very thin wire around the hook shank before you apply the putty, or purchase special dough bait hooks that come that way.
