Been having some trouble hooking fish on live bait 6 to 8 inch shad and blue gills 4 to 7 inches. The rod will go down hard, or bait clicker will be screaming and I jerk and nothing. What are your methods of hooking your bait, where, what size hooks ect. ? Does anyone use stingers & if so where do you hook the bait at and do you have to keep the line tight between hooks. I thought of using stingers but I didnt know if it would effect the movement of the bait fish?
