Shrink wrap or mesh them. You'll know if it nuisance fish as sooner or later you'll bring a whittled down bait.

If you tie a small loop on the end of the hair the use a thin sowing needle to put the 10 millers on a length of cotton you won’t crack or damage them. Then gently tie them to the hair. As long as your not casting miles they shouldn’t come off.
It worked well on the old Richworth Tuti Fruity mini boillies back in the day and they were very soft.

Micro drill first. Takes some of the pressure out and helps stop them splitting. As water gets in to the hook bait, it can split

Not necessarily no, a lake i fish for cats, the roach are ravenous and unless one actually hangs itself then you've no idea until you reel in no pellets. Mesh them up would be the best way round it

I use a braid needle to put the boilie on the hair and it's a braid hair. Just never seems to stay on.
No crayfish but silvers, could possibly be the main reason but would thought I would get some sort of indication, even just a couple of beeps on the alarm?
Tries drilling them but they split quite easily.
I think meshing and then soaking in a oil is my way to go and hopefully they will last long enough on the hair.
Cheers for the reply

Drill them first?

If you use a gated needle, make sure the gate is closed as you pull back the hair through.

Don't worry, a simple rig with a thin hair, use a fine diameter baiting/splicing needle and a 10mm boilie wrapped in womens tight or 'carp brand' meshing.

No carp is going to look at a 10mm boilie meshed up, and think i'm not eating that !

A very thin baiting needle may help?

Dry them out a bit? I use 10mm essential cell freezer bait and was having trouble but air drying it out a bit sorted the problem.
Cant see why shelf life would be any different?

They should be fine, unless you have crayfish or a load of ravenous silver fish?

Hi all, I've tried to use 10mm boilies in the past and want to try using them again as I think it's an edge as most people seem to use a 14mm+.
The problem I have had before was that I could never get them to stay on the hair for any amount of time, reeling in after a few hours or the night to find no bait on the hook is a bit of a pain as i dont know how long it's been out without bait on!
I'm using cc moore pacific tuna baits in shelf life and want to try them out again this weekend. Has anyone one got any tips or tricks to keep the boiles on for a long period of time ie 12hours?
I have thought of arma meshing them but think it may look a bit cumbersome.
