Piker, oddly enough, the tail doesn't really waggle much without the stinger as I originally tied it. I haven't fished this one with the stinger but the weight of the little hook may actually give it some wiggle...many of the rubber/plastic stick/jerk baits that baitcaster/spinfishers use are not very wiggly and they catch a bunch of fish. Not sure what a stick looking organism is in the water but I was getting hits on almost every cast with the prototype.
Proof again we should let the fish be the judges of our efforts.
I sometimes wonder if wriggling legs can give too much stimulus. A little like a rattlin crankbait failing on a calm clear water compared to a more subtle bait.
