You can use razorfish whole, or in chunks mounted on to the hook by sliding the razor over the point and along the shank, then whipping over it with shearing elastic. With whole razors it’ s best to position the more solid foot near the point of the hook to add further strength.
You can get away without the thread for short casting, but the razorfish, even when fresh and live is still a softish bait and small nuisance fish can easily rip the bait of the hook and render it useless very quickly.
Razorfish is an excellent tipping bait for use with worm. Try a sliver as a tippet when chasing dabs and flounders, or mount a whole razorfish down the side, splint fashion, on a large lug bait for cod. This is especially effective in the early new year period when many razorfish are washed out by the gales.
