Storm Chug Bug: Snap. Yes or no?

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a Storm Chug Bug in black red herringbone and I wanted to ask if other anglers use a snap or tie directly to the lure?

I only use a snap if I remove the split ring that comes with the lure...I don't like a snap to split ring....

I used to be anti snap and preferred to simply tie directly to the split ring, but sometimes lures come with cheap rings and if you are not careful you can tie your knot on the weak point of the ring causing it to come loose. It is important to tie the knot on the ring over the spot without the groove.

If I use a snap, I only use quality snaps, I like the smaller saltwater grade snaps since the one's rated 30lbs are tiny, I like Spro, KVD, and the Tsunami tiny snaps and swivels...

There is no right or wrong answer. Snaps are good for changing lures quickly, but they can alter the action of a lure like a minnow style lure, but for a chug bug I say either way is fine, whatever you feel is easier. Sometimes removing the split ring and tying the Rapala loop knot can help you get better action out of a lure like a chug bug and makes it easier to fish over weeds. If the snap is big, it pulls the head down creating a louder pop, but makes it harder to walk etc...Hope that helps...I am sure responses will be 50/50.

I use snaps for poppers if I can, a lot of popper chuggers spitting baits don't have split rings and a lot of them are a little difficult to put a snap on so most of the time I tie directly to the bait.
