The gulp was a joke, but that’s how I rig them.

The gulp might help you catch more fluke!

no real science to it. just cut a strip and put it on the hook. skin is so tough that it stays on for a long time. works great. doesn't need the tail attached as shown above. I generally make mine thinner than that, but i'm sure it doesn't matter much.

I will start tying some stinger rigs like in the pic and also use them on orange bucktails.

Not sure what others use, but I've found that a decent pair of shears helps trim the strips better than a bait knife. Also, skin is pretty tough. Once you place the hooks in the strip it can be hard to adjust placement later.
Just my 2 cents.
Happy New Year!

Make sure you hook the bait like in the pic. The flesh side towards the point of the hook. If you do it the other way you will miss a lot of hook ups.
Blufish bellies are good also. I save my striper bellies when I fillet stripers, cut it in strips and freeze it in a baggie, lay them flat in the baggie to make it easier to separate later.
