favorite knot

Recommended Posts

Guest

I just arrived on this site and noticed were crawlerman lost a fish due to a tangled knot which brought to mind this topic.
I use what I call the double improved clinch knot. We know how to tie a clinch knot,right? We know how to tie an improved clinch, right? Now, just double your line and run it through the eyelet and tie an improved clinch knot. When snugged and trimmed properly it will look like some kind of hitch. Been using it as long as I can remember and I've NEVER broken it off on a fish.

that is a great knot! i use the pallamar for just about every thing .they are both great. the biggest thing i have found is to wet the line before drawing it tight. del

When I am fishing with the new braid lines I tie a combination of the two knots... I double the line and pas it threw the eye, Then twist like in the improved clinch knot.. then pas the tag loop threw the lead eye, like in the improved clinch, then pas the loop over the bait in the palomar... Never had this knot break either.!

My favorite knot is "not me", as in "who's gonna mow the lawn Saturday?"
"not me - goin' fishin'"

I like the 'Trilene' knot, or simple clinch when it's too dark or the line's too light to see the back-loop. Haven't broke one of those, either.

Ever since the Mighty LeVerne Oveson taught me how to tie a snell - that's my favorite knot.

The best knot is one that you can tie the right way everytime. I use the cross polamer for almost everything and it works for me.

I use a Palomar knot for almost everything. Sometimes I will use the Rapala knot for better lure action.

I typically use two different knots. I use the snell knot for plain hooks, and the improved clinch knot for any type of lures. I have never had a knot let loose on a fish. I do check my line and leader for wind knots, as I have lost fish to those dang things.

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
