6. Above the hook, using 20lb Powergum, tie on a stop knot to act as a bait stop using a 5-turn Uni-knot.

The baits for stingray are not that big, nor is casting distance a real criteria, so the Gemini lead link clip is adequate. Nor is there any need for a Pennel hook rig using two hooks. Stingray are confident feeders and will take in smaller baits better.
