There is a plethora of knots to use when fishing, but here’s one that’s really simple and really effective. Check out this video and learn how to tie the Loop Knot which is great for inshore live bait.
Here’s a breakdown of the steps:
1.) Thread tag line through eye of the hook, pulling two inches through
2.) Hold the tag end parallel to the line and make a loop, pinching the top of the loop
3.) Run the hook through the loop twice
4.) Pull the line tight and trim the tag end
As you can see this knot is great for live bait as it provides room for the hook to move in the water freely. Tell us which knot you like to use for live baits in the comment section below.
