Is there a way to keep frozen cigs from spinning when trolling? Went out Sunday and trolled with frozen cigs and could not get them to stop spinning no matter how slow I went. I still caught 3 kings so I guess it didn't matter that much but at the very least, I'd like my line to not be twisted after a day of trolling. I was rigging them through the bottom jaw and out the center of their heads with a stinger rig. Any tricks that I'm missing?

I dont like stingers but be sure to break their backs so they will "swim". If they are real big and still somewhat stiff, clip their tail off.

Aggressively wiggle his body like he is swimming. Limber him up..Use a duster.
I like a doubled J hook better than a stinger.
I haven’t trolled for kings in years. Used to do it all the time. Also use a ball bearing swivel.
If it does spin the BB swivel will help minimize line twist.
