When trolling for kingfish with a pre-rigged ballyhoo on a flat line, I lost plenty expensive bait due to short strikes, but I solved the problem with a basic trailing stinger rig. I crimp a 90-pound No. 5 barrel swivel and a No. 4 treble hook onto six to eight inches of 45-pound coated wire. The eye of the swivel slides over the leader and stops at the nose of the ballyhoo, and I insert the hook near the tail of the pre-rigged bait. It has saved me a lot of bait – and money.
