i know this is not a popular technique for cats but it seems like it would work so well on finicky fish. for those who don't know a stinger rig is a bigger hook at the front of the bait, with a smaller stinger hook attached on a second leader coming from the bigger hook. i have tried this once on flatheads and caught a 40 pound snapping turtle. but have not tried it on blues. just seeing if anyone else has thought of this, or is using it.
