Attaching jigging lures
« on: Oct 06, 2017, 08:31 PM »
Does anyone use the small swivels or lure attachers instead of tying on every lure change?

Tie all horizontal jigs directly Trilene knot  ...although I have come across recommendations for a loop knot for tungsten jigs ..haven't given that a try yet . On spoons most have a split ring or a snap(no swivel) again tie directly to the snap or split ring .I use several rods with different set up/presentations so retying is minimal .

this may help

I use a No Knot connector for everything other than teardrop and other very small lures. The one exception for larger lures is jig head lures I tie those directly to the line.

I always tie my jigs directly to my line.  On my spinning reels I cut a foot long piece of line off for a leader, tie my jig to the end, and then I connect the leader to my main line with a barrel swivel.  I tired this last year to see if it would help reduce how much my jig spins and it made a noticeable difference.  I tried this with several different jigs and compared them side by side with jigs that were tied directly to the line on another rod.  As for inline reels I just tie my jigs directly to the line.

For panfish jigs I tie direct.  If using a spoon or minnow style bait (rippin rap, jigging rap etc.) I use a small duo lock snap and try to have a swivel a few feet up the line to prevent line twist.  Slender spoons actually come with small duo snaps!  The snaps allow for quick changes and a slightly different action.  Split ring vs. no split ring can change the action slightly as well.

I fussed with the "quick" clips for a season and half way threw i just went back to tieing... I tie everything. Depending on the jig and line, i either use a palomar knot, or a trilene knot. To many lost fish with a cinch knot.

On most ice jigs the eye is too small to use a Trilene knot because you have to go through twice.

If you're losing fish on an improved clinch knot, you aren't tying it correctly. I ice fish a lot of small farm ponds close to my house and regularly land 3-4 lb largemouth on 2 lb Trilene Micro Ice tied with a clinch knot.

No my issue with the cinch knot, is the tighter it gets... the weaker it gets, i don't plan to catch just a few fish ;) . Also if your using braid its guaranteed to come undone with a cinch. I generally use a double uni from braid main line to flouro for a leader, then use a trilene knot, but yes sometimes you are forced to use a cinch, but i cringe at it when i have to go that route. I dont use mono on anything any more, there are certainly benefits but its just not for me.

Do what works for you.

THIS ^^^ 
It just depends on the setup.  Small tungstens I use a surgeon's loop to prevent line twist, any larger spoons or hard baits I use a small snap.

I use a Spro swivel on the mainline with about a 4 ft Flourocarbon leader tied to the jig. I use the Palomar knot . I use this system summer and winter with no problems.

All depends. Finesse stuff I tie.   Otherwise I use a duolock snap. Greatest thing since sliced bread. ;D
