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 have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
