Meat stops

One problem with soft luncheon meat is it doesn’t stay on the hook (or hair rigs) well on the cast, while small fish soon knock it off anyway if you do manage to get your bait where you want it. The solution is to use meat stops. These winged Fox stops can be pushed under the bend of the hook when directly mounting meat, or used like a conventional bait stop when hair rigging.
