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

FJ - Thanks for posting the snell knot info. I will definitely be using the very helpful step by step procedures and the diamgrams. Did you write this?

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 hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
