Stinger Hook Advice for Sauger

Going to take a shot at some sauger this weekend. I have have some jigs that have a stinger hook attached. They are hair jigs and I will probably add a 3 in grub to the jig. I have read of two ways of using the stinger hook.

One method was to let the stinger hang free. I don't see how this would help on a short strike, other than foul hooking the fish.

Second method was attaching to end of the grub body. I am concerned that this will curtail the action of the grub, and possibly the stinger leader interfering with the jig hook.

Does any of the sauger pros on here have any recommendations??? Is the stinger hook essential?

Thanks in advance,
Brandon
