You typically won't be able to have significant attenuation
even with very good L/C components and stubs with their
inherent low Q are out of the question.
I was somewhat successful using toroids with a Q unloaded of
500 or so in a well designed filter, but tuning of the
filter was critical. Stubs actually have terrible Q,
especially down on 80 or 40 meters.
The real key is antenna separation and good radios.
