When fishing a swim jig, spinnerbait, or buzzbait a stinger hook can make the difference between a fishless day and a banner day. When fish are short-biting these baits, a stinger hook will make sure they taste more than just rubber skirt.
Each pack of Mustad Pro Stinger Trailer Hooks comes with a length of surgical tubing "stopper," that prevents the stinger from falling off of the lure's hook. When the stinger is put onto the bait's hook, then a small chunk of tubing is impaled behind it, the stinger is allowed to swing freely on the hook. When a small chunk of tubing is fitted over the eye of the stinger, then the stinger his installed onto the lure's hook, the result is a "stiff rig" that will stay in place.
