I just got through tying a dozen or so stinger hooks onto 1oz jigs. They work like you say by snagging. I have never put the stinger in the tail of the tuffy, but it sounds like a good idea. I tie my stingers so that they are same length as the tail of a large tuffy anyway. Might give it a try, since the stinger is there for the short biting fish. I brought a 16" sauger up yesterday with a mouth full of stinger hook. Kind of funny. His mouth was hooked shut with part of the treble in the upper jaw and part in the lower jaw. I brought anouther one up with the stinger in his bung hole. OUCH!
