Default Offshore vs Bass fishing

The last couple years I have got the blue water fever. Darn good thing because I have discovered some awesome tools and techniques. Offshore bite beads was something I now use every day fishing. This new trick is really good. I tested on a 150 lb butterfly ray this spring and it works.

So many people show up on my boat with flouro leaders on braid line. The standard is the uni knot and I embrace it. But perhaps you decide that uncle Henry willed fortune sends you the Great Barrier Reef and you have 50lb braid and a 50 lb leader to a speed jig. Well let me tell you there is an answer.

Awesome knot..

Like 50 loops, twists, hitches - holy crap!
That smells of a "fly fisherman"
I'll stick with the Bimini Twist or just have a snap swivel between the main line and leaders for and easy change.
Knots are getting nutz, old Peter Sebile must have a lot of time on his hands to have come up with that one.
I could not tie that knot anyway as my teeth are too crooked to bite the tag end of the leader, for me that would require an assistant to tie. WAIT - if I can't do that due to crooked teeth, that makes me handicapped. NOW I can get one of those parking stickers.

It is from long wind on leaders used in speed jigging. Or any time you need the knot to fly thru the guides..

Crazy ain't it.
