What were you using for wire? I love the Senyo Intruder Wire. I've never had that happen to me with that stuff....but it did happen now and again with mono or other line material.
Thats the key for me, i used to use beadalon (cant remember the last time i fished a stinger though) and its stiff enough to usually be okay but if you shorten it up it wont get fouled and i find i have better hook ups... I dont worry about changing hooks, i enjoy tying enough that I would rather just wrap up some more.I missed a fish last week due to this problem. I was using 49 strand bead wire. Normally it never tangles but what I found is if the loop is too long there's the ability to tangle. If I keep the loop small it remains stiffer and never tangles.
