Uni to Uni Knot
Fishing Knot tying is a critical element of terminal tackle. One of our personal favorite and most used knot when fishing around Charleston is the Uni Knot. This is a great knot when you are reducing your terminal tackle by removing a barrel swivel. This is a steam line time proven knot. A uni to uni knot maintains 90 percent of line strength and is constantly strong than a blood knot.
Improved Clinch Knot
The Clinch has been around for year. This is a time tested knot. The improved version has become extremely popular with all anglers. The number of wraps decreases with the lbs test line you use. This is an ideal knot for braid. 30 lbs test mono and under can be 6 wraps. Anything over 30 lbs you should start decrease with the minimum number being three.
Wire Trace to Fluorocarbon
This know is used when trying to reduce your terminal tackle. Traditionally when connecting wire you would use a barrel swivel with a haywire twist. This is a good solid connection, but when fish are being picky, it is great to have this knot in your arsenal to reduce your terminal tackle presence in the water. Removing the barrel swivel will reduced the rigs overall visibility. Light drag are essential on this knot, as a lot of strength in lost when connecting wire to fluorocarbon.
The loop knot is a favorite of our when we are fishing live bait. Live bait can be mullet, menhaden, pinfish, or shrimp. The biggest advantage of the loop knot is it allows the bait more maneuverability and ultimate making the bait look more natural. The goal of live bait rigging is to keep the bait as natural as possible. Heavy leader and hard knots can really make the bait look natural. Remember baits should always look as natural as possible.
