Fried meat toughened

Another good way of toughening up soft meat so it stays on the hook for longer periods is to fry it. This forms a hard skin, which helps to stop small fish from whittling away at your hook baits. It’s a good idea to introduce some extra flavour when cooking. Adding some food dye to improve visibility - or darken down your baits - are other options. Frying seals in flavours and dyes much better.
