This is typically going to be the highest rated rod in any series. There are no compromises here. Lighter rods simply will not have enough power to get the fish to a position where the wireman get grab the leader. Two-speed reels provide an added advantage. We recommend an 80lb class reel. Anything smaller will simply not have enough line capacity. The lb class reels are simply too heavy for stand-up. Lever drag reels are a must for circle hook fishing also recommended — see below. The lever drag allows the angler to slowly increase the drag pressure to ensure the proper hook set.

This rig was designed for yanking big grouper from bottom structure while riding at anchor. It targets eating-sized fish, and eliminates the typical host of pesky bottom-dwellers. First, choose a rod and reel appropriate for the task: I use a Shimano Tekota reel filled with 80 lb. I use the 32 oz. A good fighting belt is helpful here. Start by taking the 80 lb. Attach the doubled line to the lb. Next, tie 5 feet of the lb. Then, at the bottom end of the three-way swivel, tie the last 3 feet of lb.
Tie the 15 foot-long lb. Tie 5 feet of coated nylon wire to the other end of the barrel swivel, once again using the No-Name Knot, before attaching the hook with the same knot. Set the reel drag at 16 to 18 lbs.

Best hook I’ve ever used, don’t plan on getting the hook out with your hands, you’ll need pliers, if you hook them, consider them on the boat.

The points are fragile but if you stick your plastics “shallow” instead of skin hooking it will help protect the points. Fishing is an expensive hobby. These hooks are reasonably priced and no question about it they are worth the money. The sharpest hooks out there that will get you more hook ups and put more fish in the boat. A hook point will only last so long when your catching fish or banging in through rocks, but these hooks stay sharp for a long time and if you are using the right size hook for your application, they will not bend or break!!!
Any bad reviews are from inexperienced fisherman. I got some of these hooks a couple weeks ago 2 ought and I caught a 7 pounder the other day. Junk, waste of money, overpriced, peice of crap hooks, so many fish missed.

When rigging stinger hooks on my swimbaits I like to thread them with braided line. A lot of people just run the line on the outside of the bait, but I feel like this is just one more thing to get caught up on when fishing. Running the line on the outside of the bait really detracts from the look of a bait like a Huddleston as well. The rigging is pretty simple; I use 80 pound braid because it will not interfere with the action on soft plastic swimbaits.
Start by doubling the line through the needle then run the needle through the bait to your tie off point. This can be the top hook or the the main line tie. Next, to tie off your treble hook pull your line the rest of the way through, leaving a little slack then make your final knot at either the top hook or line tie. Deciding where to put a stinger hook may change from day to day. When fishing the upper water column I will usually use them on the bottom of the bait towards the head of the bait.
The tail hook shown here is for days when fish are following and just swiping at the bait. When fishing the bottom I usually do not even use a stinger hook. Posted by Josh St.
