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.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
