crankbait knot

Recommended Posts

I use the palmar knot connected to a snap if I am doing alot of switching baits. If you use a spinning combo make sure you have on a barrel swivel to take out the spin in the line.

The Palomar Knot is universal, but with treble hooks and  bigger lures this is easier:

I use a plain snap, and tie a polymar to that. NO SWIVEL , just a plain snap. I t doesn't affect the lure and it makes it easier to change lures.

Most of the time I'll use the Palomar. On long baits like a Devil's Horse, a Trilene knot is easier. Passing that loop (Palomar) around the whole bait without using 3' ;Dof line is a real pain...

What is the draw back to using a snap? I don't know anyone that uses them. The only thing I have ever heard is that they have a strong chance of bending out of shape and losing your lure. How true is this?

What is wrong with tying a rapala knot onto a snap and then add that to the crank bait?
