Four Bass Knots Tips

By: TerryN

In bass fishing, there are numerous knots you can use to help catch your bass. These type of knot methods help to make catching fish a lot easier.

Many fishermen prefer the baitcasting reel in order to get a more accurate feel. A good type of bass knot to use is a trilene knot. It's recommended for beginners because it's a very simple and a dependable knot. Simply thread your line through the eye of the hook or lure then loop the thread around so it goes through the eye again. The key is to firmly but slowly pull the main lines so it gets to about a quarter inch in size. Next, hold the lure or hook in one hand while you hold the loop between the thumb and pointer finger with the hand. After this step is completed, take the tag line and wrap it around the main line at least 5 times. Guide the tag line around and back through the double loop above the eye then push the tag back through the larger loop. It's important to pull the main line while holding the tag end. Make sure you wet your line. After this is done, clip off the tag end.

Another great knot to use is the palomar. Using this knot with a pflueger baitcaster reel helps to have more stability when drawing out the cast as well as a great braking mechanism when you want to hold the fish in place. The palomar knot is a solid way to join fishing lines to swivels, snaps, and hooks. Also, the way the double knot is tied adds more security to the knot itself adding more strength for your loops. Simply double the line and form a loop making it around 4 inches long. Pass the end of the loop through the hook's eye. Make sure to have a good grasp of the line with your thumb and finger while you grasp the loop with your free hand to help make an overhand knot. Put the hook through the loop and draw the line guiding the loop over the eyelet. Lastly, make sure the tag end of line is tightly knotted. Clip 1/4 of the tag end.

The Blood Knot is a more complex looking knot, but it's great for connections. The blood knot method is a way to bring two pieces of monofilament together in one tying method. To start the process of making the knot, simply overlap the end of two strands so that joining and twisting them is much easier. You should do this about 10 turns to make sure both monofilaments are secure. After this step, separate one of the center twists and place the two ends through the middle of the space. Lastly, pull the knot together and clip off the excess ends.

A four way to tie a bass knot is by using the San Diego Knot Jam, which is a versatile and popular knot developed by fishermen in San Diego. Step 1 - pass the end of the line through the eye of hook or lure. Pinch hook between the little finger and palm of the other hand. Step 2 - loop the tag over the index finger and make 7 wraps from the double line down to the end. Step 3 -Use the tag between the double lines below the final wrap and use the index finger to bring the loop back. Remove your finger after you made a loop from below. Lastly, simply moisten the lines and pull end tight sliding the knot down to the eye to tighten your line.
