I'm with Boon.  Stagger the hooks, one above the other.  Put each on a loop so they can swing free.  The top hook will go through the head of the bait.  The lower hook will go through the bait closer to the tail.  The distance between hooks will depend on the size of the bait.  Use larger hooks staggered farther apart for a larger mullet.

This post interests me on several levels. I'm not a shark fisherman, but the topic heading caught my interest.
Wild Hare - as in a rascally rabbit. I always thought it was Wild Hair - as in a hair brained idea. Both make sense if you think about it.
Any entymologists care to comment?
Yeah, things are a little slow this week.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Figures of speech can be wild. For example the origin of the phrase is that one might think wild or crazy thoughts while a rabbit is lodged up in one's butthole.

Re: staggered hooks, I'm on board with the idea. I'll do that next time. However I have no idea how to space them based on the target as I have no specific target in mind.
Any machine is a smoke machine if you use it wrong enough.

You space them based on the size of the bait.

Etymologically speaking, entomology is the study of insects, but etymology is the study of words, although it is not uncommon to see these combined into entymology, which I will claim is the study of the naming of insects  :d

I should get half credit for being close. Unless it's a spelling bee. which is a flying insect.  ;D
