Default Question about cut bait

My understanding is during trophy striper season in the Chesapeake bay that you must have a barbless hook, even when fishing from shore. So I will be out with surf rods and casting cut bait as far as possible. Am curious what you guys recommend to help keep cut bait on you hook when there is no barb? Will be using a circle hook which should help some, but what about tying a small thread around the bait?

I try to use thicker gauge hooks(tuna) and they seem to hold the bait on better. Not to say i don't send some bait to China but it works for me.
