    Since the flatheads where I fish only seem to hit after dark, I have started experimenting with using dipbaits for channels during the daylight to help pass time. It took me no time to realize that the treble hooks on the dipworms usually hook a channel deep in its mouth, making C&R a little difficult. I tried pushing a dipworm onto a smaller circle hook with a little success, but I still missed most of the runs. Anyone have any ideas?
     
  2. put the dip bait in ice trays with the c-hook and freeze them?

    replace the treble with a bigger,long shank hook.some of the worms come with those hooks.
