How-to Series: Rig Shad with Stinger Hooks
Two methods of rigging a shad with 9″ and 12″ stinger hooks
- First, measure where the hook will come out of the rigged bait, and mark that place with your finger.
- Second, mark where the stinger hook will come out of the tail end.
- Third, where it would come out of the tail end, take the hook and dig it in as far as you can back into the shad.
- Fourth, take the ring end and bury it into the shad and press it up to reach the connecting point.
- Lastly connect the parachute through the nose of the shad pressing it through until you feel the eye hitting the hook.
- Begin by rigging the parachute through the shad.
- Then, mark where the ring will attach and where it will come through the shad, behind the hook.
- Lastly, dig the hook back through and bend it to thread it through the eye.
