It's been a slow day on the water with very few fish. Finally, you feel the bite that you have been waiting for all day! You set the hook AND *BAM* - the line breaks. It's happened to all of us - you reel in your slack line, feeling frustrated and confused!
You know that you've done everything that you can to avoid line-break - you put brand new line on, checked your rod guides for nicks, and often checked your fishing line for abrasions.
The one thing that you overlooked and failed to check was your knot. The knot is "hidden" inside of your plastic bait and does not get inspected nearly enough. Your knot is the ONLY connection to your bait and needs to be "bullet proof"!
Here is a quick, simple tip that we hope will help preserve your knot and allow you to land more fish.
