What knot works the best? i always have tied the clinch knot. Do you use different knots for tying different things?

I use a palomar knot to tie everything. When tied with braid it'll straighten the hook or bring that submerged log to the boat...

Just me  :)

+1.  I like it because it's easy I I can tie on a bait while night fishing without turning on a light.  I can easily bend a owner 2X hook with 50# braid with this knot

+2. i used to use a trilene knot a lot, but when i started using braid and fluoro it didn't seem to hold as well so i switched to a palomar and it's all i use now.

i also use a uni-uni knot when tying braid to a mono or fluoro backing.

I like tying a variety of knots, especially for specific applications, but if you are just looking for a knot to use for terminal tackle, the Palomer Knot is quick, simple and secure:

Palomar knot for every thing  :)

Once up on a time I could tie it at night without glasses   :'(

Uni for everything, uni to uni for leaders.

Never had one fail, and although the palomar is probably a little stronger, I never have my drag set anywhere near the breaking strength of my line, so losing a fish isn't an issue.

I like the versatility of the Uni - you can cinch it all the way down or leave a little loop in it for topwaters.

Improved Clinch or Palomar.  The clinch I can do without looking so that one is used often,...it's just a comfort level/speed thing.

Jigs always get a palomar because they are easy to get back through the loop w/o much finagling and I know it's a better knot.

Lazy?  Sure,lol.

To follow up on my last comments, I tie some other knots for fun.

Losing a fish is NOT an issue. Like Toyko_Tony, my drag is set where

I will not lose a fish, but the "breaking point" does come into play

when we get hung-up.   :)
