How to catch Anchovies

Anchovies are small soft-bodied species, hooking them securely is often tough.
Live anchovies are the best bait, hooking it between the nostril keeps them alive a little bit longer. Frozen anchovies have flesh that is too mushy which makes them harder to keep on the hook.If you need to hook them securely, run the hook right through the skull, or can be hooked on the tail. You can also rig with two hooks, with the front hook through the skull and the trailer through the body behind there. If you run the line through the bait, when a fish pulls, the line will straighten and cut right through the bait.
