KVD Sexy Dawg Jr. Line Attachment ?

Recommended Posts

I bought two KVD Sexy Dawg Jr.'s from WM and when I got home and opened up the boxes - one had an oval split ring attached and one didn't ! ... Uhm - now not sure if I am supposed to us a split ring with a KVD Sexy Dawg Jr. or not ?? What is your preferance / experience with the Sexy Dawg waking bait : Leave the split ring on OR remove it ? ... Thanks in advance !

I put oval split rings on every walking bait, popper, crankbait, and jerkbait I own. I get the 6th sense oval rings (size 3 for most) from TW, for every bait that doesn't come with one already.

Why do you add the split ring?

I've always attached right to the lures eyelet and that's worked well for me.

Any bait that will swing or wobble in some way on the retrieve will tend to do so a little more freely if the line tie is not direct to the eyelet. It's most noticeable on things with subtle action like floating minnow baits. A lot of people use a loop knot or a split ring instead of a direct tie. Although, I probably use the split ring tie for a lot of things that don't strictly need it.

I wonder if high end walk-the-dog baits such as Lucky Craft Sammy's come with a split ring included ?

When I'm not using split rings I use a perfection loop.

how are you tying a perfection loop on a bait?  i use them for leaders in fly fishing but i can't see how you would tie one to an existing bait

oh, that's different than the perfection loop i know and that is a different knot for sure.  Looks like a modified version of the rapala knot.

that sequence 3 looks like it could be a booger to get right.
