Michelle,

An old trick is to use a "Limerick" style hook which has a large eye, an eye large enough to slip over the eye of the other hook. A small piece of rubber or plastic tubing slipped over the bend of the hook holds the stinger in place.

That said, I was having a problem one day with speckled trout short striking on plastc grubs. I had neither of the above. I took a treble hook off of a crank bait and used a short section of mono and a clinch knot to tie the treble hook to the bend of the jig hook. I then buried one barb of the treble in the tail of the grub. Problem solved. Each sea trout there after was neatly hooked right on the end of the nose!
