sponsors Tackle Terry By Terry Tuma QUESTION: Can I attach stinger hooks to jigs to prevent short bite ice walleyes? TERRY: I believe the extra hardware of a stinger hook can deter bites. Instead, open your hook gap 10 degrees to improve solid hook sets. Make sure the hook point is sharp. Decrease minnow size for fatheads or shiners and consider crappie minnows. Another alternative: Place hook into minnow mouth and exit center of head instead of through lips, which shortens profile. Or pinch off head behind gill plate! Raising jig 2 to 3 inches a couple of times to force a bite-up is another solution. Finally, lower the rod tip to create semi-slack line and allow fish to chew on minnow before the hook-set.
