Re: Stinger hooks with bait
I do the snell thing. I make up a few and put them on the worm harness holders attaching them to my line via a two way swivel, the one with no snap section ( SPRO power swivels). I do use heavier line to avoid fraying, crimping. I have to say that I cannot claim any real advantage. The other guys in the boat with me using a single hook have about the same success rate hooking and landing. I will say the smaller stinger only seems to serve as a way to give the dinks, gills, etc...something to get down their throats. I have, very recently as a result of the previous sentence, switched back to the single hook. The more substantial fish have not shown a tendency to nip the tails.
