I had a hell of a time hanging my2nd bait ball last night. I was wondering what tricks might be out there? I was using 2 10inch spikes tied to a climbing rope and among for about 25feet up it took me about 45minutes and I finally had to tie a hatchet on to get enough weight and use a slightly lower branch. I hit my mark several times but I didn't have the weight to get the rope back down so I could tie on the ball. I much prefer the ease of those yoyos I can whip them up in a tree and they don't come back down.
