Knots

Recommended Posts

I already tried this in the pike muskie forum and didn't get anything. with the new superlines what kind of knots do you tie. I have been using a clinch knot and haven't been very impressed.

Hope this worked. Try the link above to see a previous discussion regarding knots. If I remember right the palomer knot was favorite.

PS - I have tied the clinch since my hands grew fingers but I too have found it to be less than perfect lately. Been using Polomar on the fireline and trilene on mono - but not too sure about the trilene knot being that hot either.

I have been tying the polomer knot on my superlines for about 9 years now and they are the way to go .I think I have only had 2 fail not bad for about 5-8,000 knots but who's counting
tight lines all

Just do a google search. You'll find more sites than you can read thru in an afternoon.

here is decent drawing... pretty much an overhand knot and slip the lure threw the hole in the end of the line and pull tight.. one of the easiest knots and strongest out there... not the best for crankbaits and such becuse it can be hard to tie on them.

RF--I also tie a palomar knot with both the thermal and braided superlines. My only negative experience comes from the knot actually slipping, not breaking. I have remedied this by simply taking the tag end and looping it back through the eye twice then inserting the end back through the loops that are created and then cinch it tight and trim it. This keeps the tag end from being able to slip back out. The other far easier remedy is Super Glue.

I also like the polomar for super lines. But have had some trouble with it slipping if my hands are cold or can't grip it right. I fix this by just tying an over hand knot or two after the polomar. If the line slips the over hand knot becomes undone and there is plenty of tag left for it to cinch itself. I also like the extra insurance if I get a big fish and the knot starts to slip. This works well with dacron also. Knots with loops around the main line like a trilene or imp-clinch knots just don't snug. Hope this helps a little.

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
