Its diamond shape means that this jig drops vertically at high speed, allowing you to get down to the fish you're looking for -- even in a heavy drift! Detailed painted fish attracts attention and triggers a quick strike; pre-rigged with single-assist hook.

I used the pink and the chartreuse at night at the floating rigs from a headboat in Galveston straight out of the package with the exception that I added an extra hook on a split ring to the bottom of the jig. Hold it up to a light for 10-15 seconds to ignite the glow. Cast the lure out and let it sink until it stops or gets to 200 ft. Tuna hit it on the way down or while jigging back to the boat. Twice I caught 3 tuna in three casts... The lure also works in the daytime for ling and other fish...

I fish for tuna in the gulf so I use 40# florocarbon leader on a 5 oz jig. Based on the number of fish I've caught The leader isn't a problem. I haven't tried wire or cable type leaders which would be more appropriate for the more toothy species.
I use them for tuna and even at night tuna are are sensitive to braid. I tie mono leaders to my jigs and lose more than a few leaders and tuna to the occasional barracuda... I have tied wire to leaders when fishing for other types of fish, so if they are not leader shy, you should be fine with leaders.
When fishing for yellowtail they go for the head (red eyes) but for the most part yellowtail take the hole jig (20 to 30) pound fish. I change out the ring that is attach to the jig, I put a larger ring on them and then put a hook on each side,of your leeder or line. one long 2" and one 1" long. this gives you a better chance. when jiging these lures they dance all around. They do hook fish
Can't tell you how they work, only that they work really well. I've seen several people add a treble hook to the bottom of the jig as there is a loop there. I've fished side-by-side with people using this "stinger" set up and did not see any particular advantage to the number of hook ups or fish caught. The jig only comes with a single assist hook and I do add a second. I feel that the second assist hook helps but couldn't tell you how much.
most of the strikes will happen as the jig falls. as it falls it turns and the hooks lay against the side of the jig, most fish strike at the head of their prey so the hooks are positioned where the fish is most likely to grab the jig. these jigs are great for jigging which they were designed for but for trolling, there are better trolling spoons/jigs out there
