Snell knots

8 posts in this topic

Today is my first attempt at making my own spinner rigs and I'm having some trouble tying a snell knot to my hooks. Is snelling a hook with a uni knot dependable? I find that much easier to tie.

What worked for me is to google fishing knots. I found a lot of info and diagrams on all the different fishing knots. Print one off if you can and go from there. Hope that helps

I have found that just using a swivel works better for me. I can tie and adjust lengths a lot easier.

Nope I didn't write it, just had it in my bookmarks. Can't even remember where I got it. Just glad to help. Junky...

Thanks for all the info guys. One guide I found actually showed the uni knot....I'll have to play around with a few different methods and see what works best.

      I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore.

      I would also suggest small sucker, I also had good luck with just a crappie minnow on the hook. Depends on the lake really.

      White jig heads with a white tube, if that's not working use a buzz bomb with a sucker head or tail on the treble

      Ok, That's a good update.  I didn't realize all the fish died and I'll probably try and change the lake.  Thanks guys!
