Question

hook positions?

I am wondering why the hooks are by the eyes. I can see why they would be there for the drop, but not for trolling or jigging. Can someone shed some light on the hook position?

When fishing for yellowtail they go for the head (red eyes) but for the most part yellowtail take the hole jig (20 to 30) pound fish. I change out the ring that is attach to the jig, I put a larger ring on them and then put a hook on each side,of your leeder or line. one long 2" and one 1" long. this gives you a better chance. when jiging these lures they dance all around. They do hook fish

Can't tell you how they work, only that they work really well. I've seen several people add a treble hook to the bottom of the jig as there is a loop there. I've fished side-by-side with people using this "stinger" set up and did not see any particular advantage to the number of hook ups or fish caught. The jig only comes with a single assist hook and I do add a second. I feel that the second assist hook helps but couldn't tell you how much.

most of the strikes will happen as the jig falls. as it falls it turns and the hooks lay against the side of the jig, most fish strike at the head of their prey so the hooks are positioned where the fish is most likely to grab the jig. these jigs are great for jigging which they were designed for but for trolling, there are better trolling spoons/jigs out there

I have tried tying the line on both ends. What works best is tying on the top and adding a hook on the bottom

Question

leader?

being that the hook is at the top do you use any type of leader and does that impede the performance of the jig? It seems that any toothy creature would cut i right off?

I fish for tuna in the gulf so I use 40# florocarbon leader on a 5 oz jig. Based on the number of fish I've caught The leader isn't a problem. I haven't tried wire or cable type leaders which would be more appropriate for the more toothy species.

I use them for tuna and even at night tuna are are sensitive to braid. I tie mono leaders to my jigs and lose more than a few leaders and tuna to the occasional barracuda... I have tied wire to leaders when fishing for other types of fish, so if they are not leader shy, you should be fine with leaders.
