Jigging knot

Post By: Beto33      Posted: 1/27/2023 9:19:24 AM     Points: 60    
Hello, curious to see what knot yall use when jigging. Especially now through the ice on tube jigs.

The last few years i have been using the uni knot for lure connections with floro line. It has been a great knot for me. Seems to hold well when tied right. Double uni knot for braid to floro. I used the improved clinch knot since I learned to fish. Good knot to start with but since moved on to the uni. I run the line through twice when starting the knot as well.

I wonder if a loop knot would give the jig more action? A perfection loop might be good? I am not sure that I would try one with cold fingers.

I use a good ole Polamer Knot. Nothing fancy and it works.

what do you use?
Do you only use tube jigs?
Do you know how to tie any good fishing knots that you want to share with all of us?

What kind of fishing line are you using? What pound test? What species are you fishing for?

Uni knot works great for tube jigs ice fishing & lots of other rigs too!

Loop knot let's the jig move more freely. Pay attention to the wagy your Palomar and clinch knots sit all wonky on the eye. Loop knot eliminates that.

Standard clinch knot works for me, though some folks seem to have them untie. Easy to tie even with cold fingers

Improved Clinch Knot with 5 turns. Tighten it down well and push it towards the hook side of the eyelet. It makes the tube or jig hang more level.

Loop knot for vertical jigging
