For lures with treble hooks, Sixteen-Twenty,
also known as a Pitzen or Duncan Knot:

I will retie my set ups about every other day just to be safe. No problems.

When it comes to knots I'm a bit of a "knot head", haha. My knots hold well but they have evolved to where I really don't know what to call them anymore. If I'm not mistaken on the trilene knot you go through the eye twice before you continue to tie a regular clich knot, I may be off a little but I'm close. I noticed when I started using flouro lines the knots that require lots of wraps create too much friction and often fail at the knot. When I went back to simple knots my knot failures went away. Try the palomar, clinch or improved clinch and see if your problem goes away. Ensure you use plenty of spit and go slow when tying. Don't trim the tag end flush with the knot, leave about .100" give or take. That should keep you hooked up and save a few bucks on tackle.
