This is my stinger rig i've been working on and testing out. For shrimp-hook the 4/0 circle hook through just behind the horn, and hook the #8 treble hook on the last ring of the tail. Use 30# fluorocarbon (not 15 or 20!), and make a cow-hitch loop at top so you can quickly put them on a swivel. I've been catchin Everything with this rig. If fish are finicky or small they nibble the back and them
