Stinger hooks

7 posts in this topic

Virtually all of the stinger hooks I find have snells that are tied too short. Who makes a nice stinger hook, that is long enough, to add to my jig?

Am I mistaken or are stinger hooks illegal in Minnesota?

I make my own too... that way you get exactly what you want.

Schloogs - nope, they aren't illegal in Minnesota. cool.gif A stinger tied to a jig is considered one lure. What would be illegal would be to double, which would be to have two lures attached to the same line. Like a Rapala with something hanging down below it that also is a lure. That you can't do here, because it is considered two lures.Or having multiple single hooks like is used on a trotline. A stinger, however, is no different than having multiple treble hooks on a crankbait.

A word of caution: stinger hooks are legal in Mn. but I think there is a restriction on length. I think the limit is 4 inches but I'm not 100% on that. Old Sneller

I think that the treble stinger hook must be such that it does not idependently work on it's own. That's where the limitation of length comes in. If a fish inhales your lure, will it inhale the stinger hook?

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      I am ready to fish now that turkey season is done for my nephew

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
