I know all of us like 100% strength knot. What about when you broke off either with fish on the line or just simple snag, how many yards of line went with your lure? Do you like to leave 30-50feet of line in water with your plastic which you know bass might eat it and get stuck with your lure?

 

I’ve had many time pull those long line out of water, often times with those super thick line for catfish rig, but a lot of times for those fishing for bass with plastic. 

 

I think this year alone, my lure got snag on a line twice and pull out with bass still on the line alive. Today same story but different result and the line is about 50 feet long.

Honestly, I don’t ever recall that happening to me in the 40+ years I’ve been fishing. Snagged and pulled a lot of bottom fishing gear (line) from off the lake floor, along with a few broken off rigs (baits, lures, sinkers, hooks), but never a bass with more than a few inches or a foot of line at most still attached, and that’s been rare.

Numerous times have I pulled lines out of the water (not my own)

but I can't recall any time with a fish on the other end.

 

My favorite jig I found with about 30 feet of very heavy braid on it.

Jig was stuck in a dock, presumably a shoreline fisherman lost it,

as a boater would have been able to retrieve.

 

Only times a good deal of line was lost by me is usually an errant 

cast into a tree, most often on windy days that challenge my vocabulary.

In-water snags my leader usually breaks and that's at most like 6'.

I've dredged up a few walleye rigs & spinners over the years - 

Usually means I'm in the wrong spot.

One of my friends, on the other hand, I think he caught not just one but two spinning out fit from water, I’m not that lucky, I guess.

@Team9nineI mostly bank fishing and around rocky area. That might be another reason why I caught so many other ppl line. I, myself broke off a few time mostly on hook set or try to pull the lures out of snag.

I used to do small knot test with my 6lb line, Paloma knot I got about 95% strength, uni knot came second and my favorite trilene knot came last. I use 50-50 trilene knot (up to 8lb and braid) and uni knot (4 wraps on 10lb+ line and 5-6 wrap 8lb and under)

.... Paloma knot ....

  I knew a guy who used the Paloma knot. He was pigeon-toed.

  Sometimes when he snagged up, he "dove" in after it.

  But usually he would just wing it.

  He said Linda taught it to him.

  He thought she was beautiful.

  Peace, brother.
