Used with a pinned worm weight. The bait stayed upright. It held up well to several large bass. The fish held on long time due it having firm feel. You should use a 5/0 wide gap. It will fit perfectly in provided Hook slot.
I like the colors but the baits are basically made for just their use, they are thick so you have to use a large hook. They want to float whatever you use them with, meaning you have to use a lot of weight. Might be best for punching in heavy cover using a large weight.
