When tying a bass lure onto your line, secure it as best possible. There's nothing worse than getting "the big one" on your line and having your lure come free. The palomar knot is perhaps the most commonly used knot to secure lures or jigs to fishing line. It is considered to be one of the most reliable, strongest knots available. With a little practice, you can master this bass lure knot in no time.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Scissors or knife
- Fishing line
Fold over a 4 inch to 6 inch length of the fishing line in double.
Thread the loop through the eye of the lure or fishing hook.
Tie a regular overhand knot in the line with the doubled section. Leave the knot large and loose. The hook or lure should be hanging from the bottom of the loop.
Hold the overhand knot in one hand. The free end of the line now consists of a closed loop. Pass the hook or lure through this loop.
Pull on the long and short ends of the line to tighten the knot. Ensure that the knot is against the eye of the hook or lure, not the shank.
Cut off excess line with scissors or a knife.
