Use with ground bait or method mix usually mixed with particle, small pellet or even maggot. Pack a small amount of your chosen mix just to cover wires to create a small ball. Then place your baited hook on the ball and build up your mix and situation.

So if your baited hook is place on top, as fish feed away at the ball of bait they come across your baited hook. Available in various styles and sizes.
